Skull-and-Crossbones-Spatula_26485-l-1-500x333Well, the theme of the new year, at least for our blog, is new things! Well… that’s my theme anyway. So, the next few months you’re going to be seeing a lot of new variations in the challenge posts. So, yesterday was New Years day, and I hope all of you enjoyed it! If not, well, then I hope today heralds a better start to the new year for you. So, the rules for the scene challenges: I provide you with specific rules for how to write a particular scene.  Try to keep your scene under five hundred words, and try to keep it in the same tone as the introduction.  If I give a line that is very dark and depressing, then I don’t want to see a scene about a drunken monkey in a tutu…it just doesn’t fit.  If I do give you a line about a drunken monkey in a tutu, then you should probably try for a funny scene.

Your rules for this scene: You must write a scene that is at least 300 words long without using any adjectives. Start your scene with the following phrase: ‘John whipped his spatula through the air…”

Have a ton of fun with this! I hope that the new scene challenges really challenge you and grow your writing!
