My inspiration is not at its peak lately, to say the least. So yesterday, when I received an email from NYC Midnight, announcing the upcoming 250-word Microfiction Challenge, I thought it might be a good idea to try it out.
Brutus participated to NYC Midnight Challenges on many occasions, and got me intrigued about the series of writing contests.
I am not naive, I don’t expect to make it past the first round, but the challenge sounds like fun, and who knows? I might get surprised, or at least get interesting feedback.
So I thought I’d practice a little before the actual challenge. But for that, I would need your help. For the 250 word Microfiction Challenge, NYC Midnight provides writers with three criterias to use for their story;
- A genre (Action and/or adventure, comedy, drama, fairy tale and/or fantasy, ghost story, historical fiction, horror, romance, romantic comedy, sci-fi, suspense and/or thriller, or open genre.)
- An action
- A word
For an example, ”Horror, listening to music, Kitten”. My story would then need to combine all three things, in less than 250 words.
So, if you’d be kind enough to take a little minute, I’d love if you could pick a genre, and action and a word, and leave them down in the comment box. I’ll write a story for every proposition, and I’ll link your blog into my post.
What do you say? Would you help me practice for the challenge?
Thank you in advance… I’m ready to work on my first story for you!
