Summer of Stories Challenge: The weather makes us think of fall, the calendar tells us that (gulp) summer is winding down, but DO NOT LOSE HEART! What you have created here this summer is AMAZING! (Check out the writing here: S2014) And the challenge continues, with more, bigger prizes awaiting.
The challenge is simple: Write for 10 minutes as many days as you can. Use one of our writing ideas, today's is below or click here for others, or follow your imagination. Just write something. Storylike. Ten little minutes. Use the S2014 tag.
Our prompts cover every day of the summer and cover the major elements of good narrative storytelling. They help you practice, improve, gain confidence and discover new ideas. Promise. And there's more: PRIZES (Fortune), PUBLICATION (Fame), FEEDBACK (Friendship). What could be better? Start whenever!

Editor's note: We are so excited that another effort is being undertaken to revive and create a shared world writing experience on this site. For this to work, there needs to be consistent posting -- people lose heart if nothing moves forward -- and a core group of leaders. Sepheria and Sherlock Holmes are two who've jumped in. This Welcome gives you a link to some background and sets up the new world. For more, go to the Shared World space. Read more »
