Oops, sorry, wrong holiday!
But seriously, I had an idea that I want people's help with.
A while back I started posting challenges under the "Writer's Challenge" section of the site. For a little bit, they were going well, with people trying them and (hopefully) having fun with them. Then, like most everything else I do, I slowed down on posting them, and when people stopped doing them I eventually stopped adding new ones altogether.
Well, I'm thinking of trying it again, but this time a bit different.
I'm compiling a list of 64 challenges -- one for each week of the year, and one for each month. As of right now I've got ideas for the twelve monthly challenges, and about 15 weeks worth of challenges as well. My problem is that some of these aren't necessarily all that great, and I could use some help coming up with more ideas.
So, here's the sitch. Do you have a story idea you're not going to pursue, but would like to see attempted by other authors? Perhaps you're a fan of a certain genre that doesn't get published much, or stories of certain lengths or with particular keywords. Let me know, and it would really help me to figure out what would make good challenges. The challenges will run the gamut from very general "write within this label" challenges to highly specific "write a story with such and such as the topic" types.
If you have something, PM me with it and I'll see what I can do! After I get enough challenges, all that will be left is figuring out how to post them where they'll be visible but not take up 64 different postings under the Writer's Challenge forum :P
