Challenge Corner #1 – “We’re Fine”
Are you stuck?
Has your Muse gone on holiday, and the Beast of Writer’s Block reared its ugly head in their absence?
Let me help you. Because I have here a challenge! Think you can take it? Step on in, select your weapon, and send that Beast packing!
This week, I bring you the very first instalment of Challenge Corner – and here’s your task:
Write something including this line: “…but if anyone asks, tell them we’re fine.”
It can be at the beginning, in the middle, or at the end. It can be dialogue, or narration. It can be in a poem, in a story, or whatever you like! There’s only one rule for the basic challenge: you have to have that line.
Too easy, you say?
Well, never fear! All my challenges come with super bonus options. These are optional extras – you don’t have to do them, but you get bonus points* if you do!
+ Single Bonus if a character says this while locked in a box.
++ Double Bonus if they were lured into the box with a promise of sweets.
+++ Triple Bonus if they actually got sweets!
++++ Quadruple Bonus and my everlasting admiration if you manage to get all of the above into a poem. 😉
So, which will you go for? Share your choice with us in the comments! And when you’ve finished writing, bring a link to the work over here, too – there’s nothing cooler than seeing what different people do with the same prompt! There’s no deadline on challenges – I’ll always be happy to see works based on these things.
What are you waiting for? Get writing!
*Disclaimer: Points may or may not actually exist. I won’t be keeping track, but by all means keep score for yourself!
