Am working on an entry for a Writing.com Contest for one of the groups I am part of (I joined Coffee Shop for the Fantasy Society a month or so ago, and then was invited to be a Power Reviewer last week!).
It’s a 3000-5000 word number, so equivalent to a book chapter for me, except that it has to be a whole story in itself – beginning, middle and end, and all that. The fun part is that I can have co-authors (up to 5) to help me to shape the story. It will certainly be a learning experience, and I hope that it has a positive influence on my writing overall.
I have chosen to use the Prompt number 3: The year is 2011 and a young man has stumbled upon a wand and an instruction manual.
Last night I had a little dialogue float through my brain, and some rather (I thought) creative ideas regarding this little ditty. So I hope that it turns out to be a good’un. I will post it here (under “Other Works”) when all is said and done. Wish me luck on my journey to improve my writing.
Oh! And Vote for me! (and then go and find 5000 other people to vote for me, so I win… 8 days to go. 1,000 a day would be good.
