Monthly Writing Challenge – August

Yeah, I know I’ve missed a couple of these, but I still have a little while left before it’s midnight my time (EST)!

It’s the last month of summer break and you have just a few weeks left before school starts. You can already feel the anticipation growing inside of you and you have no idea if it’s dread or excitement. But you don’t focus on that, rather you focus on the fact that you can still make it the best month possible before school starts up again.

What do you do for the first and last weeks of school break? Do you hang out with friends? Go to the beach? Find summer romance?

Respond to the prompt in no less than 150 words and keep it rated PG-13 or under.

Monthly Writing Challenge: May 2014

Welcome to May Day! It’s the beginning of May and we hope that all these April showers will bring some May flowers, but that may not happen anytime soon. Any who, time for the monthly writing challenge!

  1. The theme this month: end of school excitement.
  2. You can reply to the prompt anytime during the month!
  3. Keep your content rated up to PG-13, please!
  4. 100-750 words for the prompt should be good, I think.

Okay, so here’s the prompt:

You’re in a class in high school, and you’re a senior, and the stupid bell won’t ring. You’ve only been staring at it for the past, oh, hour, and you only have another five minutes left before the bell rings. You can feel the anticipation in the classroom as the teacher tries his/her hardest to get the attention of the class, but to no avail. As you continue to stare at the clock you think about all that you plan on doing this summer: from preparing for college or trying to get a job, to hanging with friends at the beach and going on trips, you’ve got it all figured out. Tell me your thoughts and plans for the summer, plus tell me what happens when that bell finally rings.

Leave a comment with your prompt response! Have fun and enjoy!

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┬ásusceptible┬áto 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!
