Welcome back to Front Matter’s weekly Writer’s Challenge! A little something to tickle your fancy this Friday morning…. Feel free to respond on your own blog or site and link with a few words in the comments section below. Happy writing!
Fiction Prompt: Historical fiction meets autobiography – Pick an actual incident from your own life and fictionalize it, slightly or wildly. It can be something that happened to you, something you witnessed or just happened in your lifetime. The character of you, however, must play some role in the story!
Non-fiction/essay: What has been the most life-changing result in your experience with social media? Did you reconnect with an old flame via facebook? Was it the start of a new business for you?
Writer’s Personal Challenge: What defines you as a writer? Take 4 minutes (time it!) and list the one-word characteristics you feel embody your skills, personality and values as a writer. Don’t judge, just list. Then take that list and distill it down to the 10 most important words about your writer self. What does this list teach you? Can it be crafted into a mission statement or biography? Or simply posted where you can see it while writing?
