Writing challenge #1: The great outdoors!
Writing Challenge #1
Hello folks! Mith here. It was suggested over at Let's restart writing challenges! that we should give writing challenges a spin again, here on Writing.CD this time. I figured that since I had a hand in getting these started back on Writing.SE, I could give a hand with kicking them off here as well. And so... here I am!
Most of us are right now stuck in lockdown, not leaving our houses. We're stuck in close proximity with our families, or sitting alone without them. Many people haven't stepped foot outside in months.
A bit depressing, isn't it?
That's why I am proposing that the theme of this first challenge be the great outdoors. (Which, coincidentally, happens to be another Codidact site.) That way, even if we can't physically get out and about, we can at least go there in our imaginations.
This challenge is to write something about the great outdoors. Whether that's a short story, a haiku, a riddle, rhyming couplets, or whathaveyou, it's totally up to you.
If you'd like a prompt, here are a couple lines to optionally either start off with or include somewhere in your work:
[Her] hand traced the delicate lines on the bottom of the green leaf.
The thundering of the water drowned out all other sounds.
[My] hands scrambled for a hold on the rough rock.
And just remember: this is a fun challenge. The point is to have some fun, perhaps stretch some creative muscles, or give a new style a try; it's not a contest or anything.
