Yes, it’s time to start doing our Friday writing challenges again! Today’s is simple because I know you’re rusty.
Complete the following sentence.
The most important thing about writing a book is…
That’s the challenge.
That might be harder than it looks, but there probably are no wrong answers. So, now that you know we’re gonna start doing these, how about a SECOND writing challenge to kick it off?
I really want answers to the first question, but here’s a second challenge.
Write a limerick using one of the words or phrases from the following list.
If you can’t remember what a limerick is, you are at a distinct disadvantage.
There one was a man from Nantucket…
Oops. Well, we better not go there.
How about… Oh, there’s a clean version. Thank you, internet!
“There once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
But his daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man,
And as for the bucket, Nantucket.”
Get the idea? Remember these? Okay. Using the limerick format, write your entry and post it below.
Here are your word/phrase choices. Use one of the following words or phrases in your limerick:
- Time travel
- Brilliant flash
- Mr. Mills
- Motel 6
- pickup truck
ONE participant will be selected at random to receive a FREE eBook of their choice from my many books on Amazon.
ALL participants will be entered in a random drawing for a FREE paperback of The Navigators whenever I get that done. Soon. probably.
You can’t lose!
Have at it!
And we’ll see you next week for another exciting Flash Fiction Challenge! (A REAL one. Honest.)
Oh, and for reading this far, check my Amazon author page for special deals on my books over the next four weeks. I will have free books and discounted books available almost every day for the next 30 days. Because I love you. Yes, you can tell your friends. About the deals, not that I love you. That would just sound silly. I may not remember to mention it anywhere else, but if you follow me on Amazon it’ll notify you of the deals when they happen. Probably.
