Tyche's Monthly Challenge (April 2013): A Thousand Words... by TycheSong
Ladies and Gents (and Other) of The Maple Bookshelf, I, TycheSong, challenge you thusly:
With spring here at last, new things are here, and among them, a new sort of challenge! Write me a story based on one of these pictures prompts! There are no word prompts for this challenge—only the eight pictures provided. Please make sure you read the rules, as this is a different challenge than our usual sort!
The Parameters of the Challenge
- The story must be at least 1000 words, and can be as long as you like.
- This entry must be an ORIGINAL work, no fan-fiction this time! I know it may be daunting, but I want to see something wholly from you!
- It MUST be a completed and posted story by 30 April. You are, as always, free to add to it after or write sequels, but the story must be readable as a complete work by the due date. If you will need an extension for any reason, you must let me know by 25 April!
- Please use the picture you have chosen as your banner so that everyone can see what inspired your work. Of course you may add your title to it.
-You do not have to follow the picture precisely or include every detail—these are prompts, and therefore stepping stones! Do not be afraid to deviate if your story is taking you that way.
-These stories will be posted anonymously, so to participate in this challenge, you must sign up, otherwise you will not be able to log in to the Challenge Entrant sign on. You can join the challenge at any time during the month-but you must let us know!
-To sign up, please e-mail me at TycheSong@hotmail.com or TycheSong@gmail.com. Please include both your TMB name and the Title of your work so that I know who you are and can give proper credit at the reveal! :-D
The Challenge Prompts:
If you have any questions, or need to ask for an extension (before 25 April) please e-mail me at TycheSong@hotmail.com or TycheSong@gmail.com with the subject heading “April Challenge.” I’m really excited to see what you guys come up with! Happy writing!
