I miss Tracy Fabre’s challenges. But, since she hasn’t issued a challenge recently, and since there are two critters that I think of when I think of her, I’m following suit.
I challenge you to write a short story or poem about anything your muse wants. In my case, there is no limit to the word count—I’m more interested in your response. The trick is, you must include the word armadillo and/or aardvark. Yes, you can fudge on almost anything. In fact, you can write about fudge on an armadillo. But, one or both of those words have to be in your story, be it prose or poetry.
BTW, you guys rock. Where’s Tracy?
Your challenge: Write a short story, and include the word armadillo and/or aardvark in your story.
Keep in mind, this is a monitored group and there are only a couple of rules, which are:
Make sure you put this (WWE, 9/25/13, Armadillo) in your title.
Be sure to tag it with WWE, Gather Writing Essentials, Armadillo (a bit silly as Gather’s search engine doesn’t work for me). Post to Gather Writing Essential.
I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon, but if you're late, just give me the link.
There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.
Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.
Challenge: Write a short story, and include the word armadillo and/or aardvark in your story.
BELOW ARE RESPONSES TO PRIOR CHALLENGES. Big WOW! Please let me know if I missed anyone's post and I'll get it linked for next week. My husband just broke his foot, so I may be slow at getting back to this.
