Monthly Writing Challenge

Yup, I’m joining the bandwagon and am going to start doing monthly writing challenges for any and all to come participate in! How these are going to work:

  1. The monthly challenge prompt will be themed (so since it’s April 1st, today’s theme will be April Fool’s Day).
  2. You can respond to the prompt at any point during the month it’s for (aka leave me a comment on this post!).
  3. Let’s all have fun with it!

I want to get the creative juices pumping and the blood flowing, so let’s begin, shall we? Here’s the prompt:

The dreaded day is finally upon us: April 1st. It’s dreaded by some because they are easily susceptible to pranking, while others find it a marvelous way of unleashing their fury (and laughter) upon others. You are the person who dreads it. You’re going about your day, minding your own business, when suddenly at your workplace, local coffee shop, school, wherever, when suddenly – BAM! You’re hit with the worst prank you’ve ever been hit with (or by). In 500 words or less, tell us: what happened?

I hope this can be a fun and engaging activity for you all to participate in!

  1. Time slips like soap in a prison shower. When you lose hold of it, you know something unpleasant is sneaking up behind you…Dad called….stopped talking to people….sleep…your brother….up late….we all cried when he shrugged it off….late walks….glazing over….brother never acknowledges….bottom of the pool….felt ignored….sank….lonely and detached….all year….what didn’t we do?…fools!
