Summer of Stories Challenge: Write for 10 minutes as many days as you can. Just 10 little minutes. Use one of our writing ideas, today's is below or click here for others, or follow your own imagination. Just write something. Storylike. Ten little minutes. Use the S2014 tag.
We have created prompts for every day of the summer and they are aimed to cover the major elements of good storytelling. They'll 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? June's Prize Winners. Start anytime! Really.
