PostSubject: Assignments or Challenges?   Thu Feb 12, 2009 7:49 am

I wonder if people would be interested in weekly challenges and or assignments? Quick little short things to get the blood flowing, so-to-speak.

It could be weekly, like a meme. Or I could just post things as they come to me and people could do them whenever they need a creative boost?

I'd like to start it anyway, but which way would you guys be more interested in? And where should I put it? Hmmm... let me know!! ^_^

Sounds like fun, if it's not too much work! tongue

Count me in! I'm horrid with writing short stories (they turn into novels) so this would be perfect practice for me.

Good idea. As long as there's no need to write poetry.

A poetry challenge would be wonderful - I'm sure, of course, ReNu, you're more than welcome to decline a challenge if poetry isn't your thing. Smile

Poetry would be cool or something short because I don't have a ton of time on my hands! Sounds like fun! Smile

That is an understatement. I love reading poetry but suck bigtime at writing it Sad

Well, I'm not very good at writing it, either, ReNu, but I do like writing it, even if it's not very good. If you feel like you're in the same boat, then you should totally give a poetry challenge a shot - everyone here is uber helpful, and constructive. I'm sure they'd be good at giving me tips for writing better poetry. And, of course, if you don't enjoy poetry, you can just give feedback. Smile Hooray!

i think this is a great idea!!! we should set up a monthly competition or something with abstract theme e.g. love and can do short story and poetry for it. we could vote anonymous on one in each category or something! Very Happy

I'm going to set up a competition thread in the short story section so we can discuss how we want to do this? Competition or sharing work etc.

Here is the thread to discuss ideas about how/what would be good e.g. competition or just writing exercises etc. Monthly Writing Challenge

and when we have an idea of what we want - i'll maybe set up a challenge category or set up a thread in short story or poetry section.

I'd be interested in trying now and again. I sometimes have problems writing under pressure, but I'd love to try!
