Weekly Writing Challenges

Weekly Writing Challenges!

Okay, so, I recently created a thread here on Inkwell with a game where we give eachother writing challenges. People seemed confused about how it worked so here is another thread for writing challenges, but it will work a bit differently and be more simple.

Every week I will post a few (amount unspecified) challenges for writing of varying difficulty and type. This is for motivating you as you write, giving you ideas, getting out of writer's block, etc.. If you do some you can post it here. :) No need to post you writing here. But . . . yah!

You don't need to feel pressured into doing these or anything, this is just for fun.

Sounds fun! I might join (and I always hate it when people say this but it's kind of true) if I have time. ;)

Alright, but there is no need to "join." You can do them or not do them whenever you feel like it. Wink

Okay, here are this week's challenges. I might not be updating them consistently, like, sometimes on Tuesdays of Thursdays but I'll try.

Go to a random word generator. You can find one by searching up "random word generator." Generate three words randomly and write a short story of at least 300 words based off of them.

Take the last sentence that you wrote than elaborate, making a story out of it. Do this for as long as you can without bringing in too much new stuff or writing something based off the sentence before the one you are continuing.

Write for ten minutes as quickly as you can without backspacing or thinking.

Hopw you have fun doing these!

I don't think anyone did these but hear are some more anyways:

Start writing. Don’t let your thoughts wander, just keep writing steadily without taking any breaks. See how long you can do this for, but if it’s getting hard, stop.

Write at least 100  words which show a character that you create’s personality. Don’t directly describe them, but show it. Maybe you will write what they are thinking or pit them in a situation and write how they respond. For example, don’t write “Charlotte had a bad temper.” Instead you could write “Charlotte heard a knocking at her bedroom door; She opened it, and there was her little sister. “Could I borrow your hairbrush?” She asked. Charlotte glared at her.“No! Go away!” She slammed the door and stomped away haughtily.”’


Take an object near you. Close you eyes. Feel it. What is the texture? The shape? Size? Write about that. With your eyes closed again, listen to it. Maybe it itself doesn’t make a noise, but maybe there is a noise, when you knock on it with your fist,  or scratch it with your fingernail, or bang it against your desk. Write that. Do the same thing as this for seeing and smelling (but perhaps not taste). (Open your eyes when doing seeing, of course).
