Tyche's Monthly Challenge - hosted this month by AnneM (July 2013): Happy Birthday! by TycheSong
AnneM's Monthly Challenge (July 2013): Happy Birthday!
As the very first member of 'The Maple Bookshelf' and as the first writer to contribute a story, I have been granted the honor of coming up with July's challenge. Since July is the month Harry Potter (the character) was born... and the month I was born... I decided to host a 'Happy Birthday Challenge'!
As always, I would be thrilled beyond measure to have at least ten people participate!
The Parameters of the Challenge:
- A one shot or multi-chaptered story, each chapter 1000 words or more.
- Any fandom or an original
- Submitted no later than July 31 (which just happens to be mine and Harry's birthday, thank you very much! If anyone needs more time they only need to email Tyche and let her know two days in advance.
- Once again, the challenge is anonymous, so when you sign up, the mods will send you the ID and password so you can submit your story.
- Don't forget to rate and warn properly, and put a disclaimer on it if necessary!
Now for the prompt... you see, that's an easy one as there is only ONE prompt. But I believe everyone shall come up with something equally awesome and original - using your own interpretation of the prompt below.
The prompt is: "Facing a milestone birthday, all she (he) really wanted was one simple little wish - but often times one must be careful of what one wishes for, because often times wishes do come true."
- Of course, you don't have to use the prompt exactly as written, but you should at least use it as inspiration. I've also made up a series of challenge buttons for you to pick from. There are eight in all. The winner of this challenge will get something special from me!
Thank you to the mods for giving me this chance to host a challenge (it was an award for one of the carrot challenges) and I really hope everyone who's interested will join us this month. Happy writing! Oh, and Happy Birthday!
