Hello there, and happy Sunday! How’s it been? Mine’s been pretty good…we’ve been cleaning the house and enjoying the bright sunlight and beautiful weather. 🙂
In today’s post, I’m going to be introducing you to The Writer’s Prompt Challenge, co-hosted by me and the lovely Allie Taylor.
The Writer’s Prompt Challenge (TWPC) is a monthly challenge for writers. Each month, a set of prompts is posted for writers to include in their stories. At the end of the month, the entries are judged and a winner is chosen! 😀
- Your entry must be between 100 – 300 words.
- A new challenge will be posted on the first Wednesday of the month (or otherwise stated for certain cases)
- The winners will receive a badge for their blog
- The winner will be chosen based on the judges’s preferences, as well as the following questions: Does this entry capture my attention immediately? Does it make me want to continue reading? Is the writing clear? They will also take into consideration the writer’s voice and style. Usage and application of the given prompts are taken highly into consideration of story rank.
- This is a challenge. Have fun, but be competetive.
- As of now, there are no prizes but the badge.
- When writing your post, be sure to include the Writer’s Prompt Challenge image.
- The Deadline for this challenge is the last Wednesday of the month. The winners will be announced on the first Wednesday of the next month.

- Make sure to highlight (bold AND italicize if you can’t highlight) the prompts like (e.g.) Cape, frost, etc. so I can easily see what prompts you have used.
- Make sure to make it clear in your comment/post/email what prompts you have used, how many words your story is, your age (optional), your first name or a nickname, and the link to your blog.
JUST TO BE CLEAR:
This month is Allie’s turn to host the challenge. I’m merely spreading the word about this challenge.
Please send your entries to her. I’ll be happy to answer any questions about how things work, but for technical things, please let Allie know.
Are you excited for TWPC? Will you be entering?
Do you like the little graphics I made? What are some design tips of yours?
Lastly, do you prefer my post text color to be black or the natural dark gray like it is now?
