Happy New Year, everybody! Hopefully many of you have been writing over the holiday season, but if you haven't, and even if you have, pick up your pens and participate in the new writing challenge!
From now on our writing challenges will be known as Wordvines Write-Offs. A new Write-Off will be posted every two weeks. There will be a winner decided at the close of each Write-Off. Initially winners will be decided by the moderators, but if the Community starts getting active again, and you guys want to vote for winners yourselves, then that's what we'll do. The winner of each challenge will be displayed in a winner's icon posted in the Community Info for all to see. If the Write-Offs become a success we may be able to incorporate a small prize for winners, but for now you'll just get to bask in the glory of being a winner. Which isn't a bad thing.
Anyway, onto the challenge----
In a piece of prose between 500 and 1000 words, write about a chance encounter between two strangers. Include a beginning, middle and end, some form of conflict and some form of a resolution. Your imagery should be focused on two or three of the senses, NOT including sight. Too often we focus on sight in our writing, so now's your chance to dip your fingers into the other senses.
Your entries will be critiqued by mods and anybody else wishing to critique is welcome to. Scores and a winner will be announced in two weeks. Good luck!
