We all go through hard time, or face challenges in life. Sometimes we solve the problem easily. Other times are harder, or we can’t find a solution.
Now imagine a character whose every action, every solution to simple everyday problems changes the fate of a stranger–or the entire world. What would someone do when that became clear?
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).
