This is what WriteRdie is all about

We are going to embark on our greatest challenge yet. Are you ready?

Announcing…

For all the year 2017 we are going to write dark stories–I say stories because feel free to make it nonfiction if you so choose– and the only caveat is that each story must revolve around some element starting with that week’s letter.

We’ll start with A, of course. So bring your stories about:

worditout-word-cloud-1984173
Or…

Axmurderers
Anthrax
Adder
Angel of death
Apocalypse
Atrocious
Awful
Ashes
Army of Darkness
Amputate
Aches
Anger
Autopsy
Alzheimers
Atheism

Have fun with it!

You’ll have two weeks to write it and send it in.

 

Your December Challenge from WriteRdieFiction

Because you didn’t have enough to do already, right?

I’ve been thinking about doing another challenge like Horrorimo. I’d originally planned on doing one-a-day challenges for all of December but seriously who has the time? Yeah, me neither. Well, I say we all have time for at least ONE challenge in December, so here it is:

Rewrite a traditional Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Holiday character or element and make it dark.

Where did I get this crazy idea, you ask?

From Robert Shearman, of course. He wrote a story about Santa Claus that I read some time during the summer in a story compilation called Remember Why You Fear Me. It was such a humdinger (yes, really) I haven’t stopped thinking about it since, and aren’t those the very best kind of stories?

So, there’s your December challenge. Your due date is the first of the year, or you know, whenever. Really, I’m pretty casual about all this. Make it dark, make it fun. Link it to here so I can enjoy it too.

Oh, and stay tuned for a whopper of a challenge I have coming up for 2017. I’ll announce it on the first and we’ll tear it up for 26 challenges (that’s a hint!) for the year.
