Last week’s Sunday Writing Challenge was the first one without an official assignment. We’ve been writing and doing exercises and commiserating for two months. This was an exercise in seeing how we did without formal structure and accountability.
Personal confession time: it was a productive week for me! I do wonder if that was in spite of the lack structure rather than because of it, but I won’t look a productive horse in the mouth. My current fiction project didn’t see a lot of forward momentum, but I worked out some plotting issues, finished some research, and found an interesting bit of Old Hollywood gossip that fit perfectly into the plot. I’m very happy with the week’s work.

At the moment, there are two standing challenges to participate in:
Linotte is doing a NaNoWriMo over the course of Lent, with an end goal of 50,000 words written in 40 days. New projects or old – anything is on the table.
Brynn was inspired by Linotte’s challenge and issued one of her own on a slightly smaller scale -– write 100 words a day, every day, for forty days.
Kortney Thoma donated three of her own photographs to our project. We completed a challenge based on one of them several weeks ago. This week we’re tackling another.
Write a minimum of 500 words inspired by this photo. Bonus points will be allotted next week to those brave souls who are willing to share.
That’s it! You have until 10 p.m. next Sunday to check in and tell us how you did.
Friends new and old, don’t forget that our writers’ group is open 24/7 for commiseration and support, as well as helpful links, contest submission information, and tips.
