Weekly Writing Challenges Will Return This Week!

Thanks to all who’ve stuck around so far.

2012 is going to be a great year!

Stay tuned for more updates! 

Nov 3

Instead of doing the weekly writing challenges, maybe instead you could try smaller challenges every now and then specifically for those who are writing for Nano. I don't mean big ones, I mean ones like "Use solipsism in a sentence" or "Introduce a new character when someone says the word potato." Silly things that you don't necessarily have to do, but keep you thinking and on your toes?

That sounds like a wonderful idea!

I’ll look into trying that some time next week!

Thanks for the suggestion. 

Hello and welcome!

I regret to inform you that WWC has recently changed hands due to unfortunate circumstances.

We still promise to offer you top notch challenges to get your creative juices flowing in the near future.

As of now we are on hiatus on account of NaNoWriMo

We shall return in December with lots of fun activities for all. 

And maybe we might have a surprise challenge in the middle of the month for those who want to test their ability to multitask. 

Did you know…?

weeklywritingchallenges:

There are currently 273 people following this blog.

19 have participated in the challenges. Not the current one, but every challenge put together!

people have send in suggestions for future challenges. Not today, not yesterday, but over the course of months!

When people want to give suggestions or criticism, do they come here? No, they go over to Weekly Art Challenges to complain to Kuri, who has nothing to do with this blog. (I am talking about this post here in particular)

Guys, I’m trying really hard here. Maintaining several blogs, going to University, AND participating in NaNoWriMo is exhausting and I don’t see how I should be the guy who gets to work his ass off for nothing at all.

I’m sorry, but I quit.

If you want this blog to continue on with whatever, message me over my private tumblr and I’ll give you the login information for this blog here.

tumblr issues

I’m not sure if submissions or asks work, I simply can not recieve any.

To test this, would it be possible to send me a short message (does not need to have any meaningful content) and reblog this post to show you have send me one?

It be a terrible thing if your entries would be lost (again).

Thank you for your patience.

Edit : tumblr user honorless suggests that submissions not showing might be because of people primarily posting them during peak hours. Please make sure to post your submission early so we can sort out any trouble.

Blog Hiatus during NaNoWriMo

As I have said in the challenge post #7, during November I will only post very short ‘challenges’, so that those who participate in this years NaNoWriMo can focus on writing their novel.

I encourage everyone to at least try it. More information about it can be found here.

It is also possible to post a small(!!) excerpt from your story here, so people may visit your account in order to track your progress.

If you have any questions, the NaNoWriMo website has a few pages that might help. If you are still unsure about something, you can ask here or over at Live and Write.

Have fun.

Weekly Writing Challenge #7 (Oct 24th - Oct 30th): Write a story about a character created in Weekly Art Challenge #2
Please credit the artist and put a link to the original post in you submission.
Try to be respectful towards the creations of others. Have fun.

PS.: This will be the last regular Weekly Writing Challenge before December, as NaNoWriMo is in November and I deem it more important than this. I will probably only post very short ‘challenges’.
If you are participating in NaNoWriMo, you may submit small(!!) excerpts from your story during the month of November.

Submissions are closed

If you have send in your submission but it’s not up on the blog, it’s because there is nothing in my inbox. I’m really sorry, but there is nothing I can do about it.

If you still want people to read your story, tag it with Weekly Writing Challenges or any other tag associated with it.

Thank you very much, and again, I’m very sorry about the inconvenience.

Someone Who is Feared

by R. Hyperion.

Supervillain Theme: “The bloodthirsty murderer of revolutionaries.”

…This is probably the roughest thing I’ve ever put up in public. Not just the quality of the writing, but the content. If acts of cruelty and violence trouble you, please don’t read it.

When are other submissions going to be posted?

Um… there are currently no other submissions :/

My message inbox is empty right now.

If anyone has send their submissiond in and it has not shown up here, please send it in again, because I think tumblr ate it…

Sorry. :[

New info blog

Hey everyone, I just made a new blog I wish to fill with everything related to writing and I didn’t want to distract from the challenges on this blog.

So, it’s a seperate blog now, called Live and Write.

Check it out if you are interested. :)

Man, I am definitely following too many people. I keep missing the challenges in my feed! What time zone are you in? I'll try to have something submitted before then... And encourage my friends to do the same. This week's challenge is pretty awesome.

Time zones do not matter, really. Utc-10 is what I’m going with, I believe. Anyway, I’m on Central European Time and to give people a chance to submit their stories I close submission on the following day for me, around 10 o’clock.

So try to submit something before 11:59 pm on Sunday in your time zone and it is sure to show up here. :)

Day of Disco Prince

Hi there! I really enjoyed this one. I have so many original superhero characters that I didn’t feel I needed to use the generators, so I decided to use some of my characters I wanted to explore for some work soon.

My tumblr is here, so please stop by anytime! I do a lot of art and comics.

Day of Disco Prince

This is absolutely no way to begin a day, Disco Prince thought as he held the unconscious man to his chest with one arm, the other serving as a channel for his powers. The place was coming down around them. A massive column of rock barely stood at bay, held back by the persistent beam of force. Was this the end?
