Ever wonder how many completely different stories can be written with the same first line? That’s the challenge this month, to see how many story ideas you can come up with from this first line:
The door opened no more than an inch, and stuck fast.
Out of all those story ideas, go write the one you think will work best.
Remember: Challenges are supposed to be fun, but don’t forget to stretch yourself and take risks. If you normally write fantasy, try science fiction. If you’ve never tried writing in first or second person, here’s your chance. The story doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, this is all about trying new things and gaining new skills, and most of all, having fun. Challenge stories can go up on the workshop at anytime. Put “Challenge” in the title so people can find it.
Challenges can be suggested by anyone and suggestions should be sent to Jaime (news (at) onlinewritingworkshop.com).
