Think about this: You go to bed in your own house, in your own room. When you wake you’re outside. Polished ceramic walls–too smooth and too high to climb–surround you. You almost miss the small opening that lets you escape the circle, but you see the walls continuing on.
Where are you? How do you get home again?
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).
