April Writing Challenges!
Wed Apr 4, 2018 22:36
107.77.90.85

As some of you no doubt remember, Sonora used to have writing challenges every April, July, and November to correspond to NaNoWriMo (National Novel-Writing Month) and Camp NaNoWriMo. Over the past while, authors have mentioned ďoh, I have an idea for if we do such-and-such challenge againĒ and such, so I entertained thoughts about resurrecting the tradition...

...And then (as Iíd forget my head if it wasnít attached) kept forgetting to do things to set it up until after bedtime, which is why Iím posting this most of four days into the month, and two before midterm. Therefore, the first challenge shall be a highly flexible one:

Write a flashback, flash-forward, or both for one or any of your characters

For those who havenít played before, this really is, within the parameters of site rules, pretty wide-open. Past entries have included embedded flashbacks in site posts, single WtS posts, and anthology posts with all of or a selection of an authorís characters and/or alumni, and Iím sure more variations could be constructed. WtS flash-forwards (glimpses of events that you think might happen in future) have been kept to 400 words maximum in the past to maintain some mystery/also help you keep things vague in case they change direction before you get to the future (as they very well may - these are not at all binding for obvious reasons)). Go crazy with it, during term if youíre ambitious or any point during April, in whatever combinations you like - just post a link below so we can all enjoy!

    • Question for GaryConnor Priory, Sat Mar 3 12:33
      It says in the D and D post that Gary met up with everyone to tell them when and where to meet. Would Connor have been able to take this opportunity to ask about elves as he clearly is thinking of... more
      • Answer for ConnorGary Harper, Sat Mar 3 17:55
        Absolutely. Gary is not shy in talking about his hobby. He would have happily answered any and all questions that Connor, or anyone else would have had during that meet-up. He definitely would have... more
    • Notes about Cleo's powersCleo James, Mon Feb 5 07:07
      As you may have noticed, depending on what youíve read, Cleo is a half veela. As she didnít know her mother, this was something she was unaware of until now. As thereís quite a lot of gaps in the... more

        So since my only character currently considers Cleo one of his best friends at school (if not his best friend period). I've also been looking up some stuff, and I saw that people who have repeated... more

          Hmm, yes, just looked that up and found the wiki article. It's frustratingly lacking in sources. However, all forms of mental magic do seem to be things that are based on how susceptible a person is... more
