Writing Prompt and Writing Challenge

I only heard back from a couple of people, including one commenter (Hi, Melanie! - and yes, the "wri" sounds like write *G*) on whether prompts or challenges would be something we'd like to do here.

But, heck, since I like prompts and challenges, I decided to go ahead and start posting them anyway.

So... I will do my utmost to have one of each posted each Saturday for us to use the following week to stimulate our writing juices! I tend to be a little... er... quirky, so hopefully my prompts will work with you, even if you aren't.


Writing Prompt: Include a Spontaneous Chicken Situation. It doesn't matter what a SCS is. Just include it.

Writing Challenge: EVERY DAY set the timer for ten minutes and write. Do. Not. Stop. Writing. Doesn't matter if what you write makes sense, just open up the gates and go. We can--each one of us--find ten minutes every day to do this.

Next week, let us know how you did. Did it help you write? What was good and/or what was bad?

Folks, feel free to tell a friend about JaNoWriMo... we need to build up the ranks once more...

Happy Weekend!

That is ONE unfortunate chicken. And an SCS? Too funny! Okay, I'm going off to do it. And I need to work it in with my current wip. I'm trying to do that with any prompt I do.

I hope the prompt doesn't have to be about that naked bird.

LOL... no it doesn't have to be about that poor naked bird. Any SCS will do!

Someone scared the... pants off that chicken! *snicker* Okay, I can do the ten minutes... and that chicken prompt is hilarious.

Loved the prompt - immediately had an idea.

Thanks for giving me a nudge.
