WEEKLY CHALLENGE #43
1. CHALLENGE: Write a short scene, no more than 250 words, showing your character helping someone in need. What type of situation is your character most likely to stop and assist in? This can range from helping a child study to walking an elderly person across the street or can be giving the person ahead of them in line a few dollars when they are short on their bill.
The idea for this challenge is to get to know your characters and what drives them to do certain things. Don’t tell us what they are doing… show us. Good luck!
INVITE YOUR FRIENDS! Not a requirement to enter, but we would absolutely love to see more people entering these challenges. So if you know any writers who might enjoy them, send ’em over!
2. COMMENT: You MUST comment on FOUR other entries to qualify. If you do not, your entry will be disqualified from the challenge. Give and take… Keep the cycle going.
3. IMPORTANT In order to qualify, you MUST vote for your TOP TWO choices. If you don’t vote, you cannot win this challenge (even if you receive the most votes!).
