I had this idea yesterday and decided to post it today since I need a little writing project to take my mind off some things.
So remember when I took that writing course? Well, there was a writing challenge that wasn’t part of the class. The challenge was to write a one thousand word or less short story with a beginning, middle and end including three objects, which were given to us by one of the mentors.
The three objects were an empty glass, a blanket and a t.v stand. I wrote a short story including those three objects and briefly posted it on the blog, but JayNoy told me if I ever wanted to publish it, it couldn’t already be published anywhere.
The story involves two sober people and one of their challenges. Some of my friends told me I should try submitting it to a sober magazine and I just inquired to see if they’d be interested, but they don’t take fiction.
So I thought, I want to write something for the blog that will just be for the Roof, not something I’d plan to try publishing. Then I thought, I could do a writing challenge on the blog. I just need three objects.
So here’s where you come in. Leave me a comment with three objects. Any objects. Just not a blanket, empty glass or t.v stand lol. I’ll take comments through Friday. Then I’ll have B or someone who doesn’t read the blog pick a number between 1 and hover many comments I get.
I’ll list the comments in a text document in case there are other comments without objects.
I’ll have the number selected on Saturday and give myself one week to write a short story with a thousand words or less which will include the three winning objects, and post it here. Sound like fun? I think so. It’ll be great practice for me and I’ll get to share something with you all, since I’ve never posted any of my fiction here.
Ok, get commenting! You have until the end of Friday! 😉
