Write There Challenge Hiatus

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

I’m trying to think of the best way to apologize, here. I know I may have disappointed some who like the Write There concept, and I’m sorry for letting it fall by the wayside. I have no desire to offer an explanation of why. I’m writing this blog to admit to something, and whether anyone is here afterwards is their prerogative.

No, I haven’t offed someone, no matter how annoying they are. I haven’t harvested organs for the black market or Madoff with anybody’s investment money.

The truth is I’m struggling with depression and trying not to let it gobble me up. It’s not always a matter of the Big Bad accumulating into gale force winds to blow the walls of my mental sanctum down. At times I just go from feeling everything like my skin has been scraped raw to feeling nothing like I’ve been dipped in rubber cement. This yoyoing is exhausting, but it’s also how I protected myself for 30+ years. When I felt exposed or vulnerable, I’d withdraw and shore up my defenses.

And now, I’m trying to find a balance between the two. I even started counseling. Yay, initiative, whoop-de-fucking-do. Half of me says ‘I can do this’!

Meanwhile, the other half of me is calling bullshit.

I guess I’ll see which one wins.

I am going to restart this challenge, but I’m going to limit participation to three a week. The rules will still be the same.  The point is confronting that part of me that gives up when I feel defeated, so I’m asking for the help of anyone who reads this.

Stay on me about this. Insult me if I lag behind. Kick me in the couch warmer if I even hint that I’m throwing in the towel. That’s the type of support I need right now. Letting others support me on a psychological level is really tough for me to do, but I know it’s also part of what I have to change about myself to learn better, healthier ways of dealing with setbacks and bad days. Because, at the most basic level, what I’m doing now just ain’t cutting it. And if I don’t change something soon this will be Me, Forever. I’m not willing to accept that, so Fuck It, it’s GO time.

Depression, Come at Me, Bro. Try to blow my house down. This time, t-h-i-s t-i-m-e, I swear I’mma use brick to rebuild. You’ll be the one left out in the cold, because I’m tired of feeling goose-bump chilled down into my soul.

So, come at me, bro. This time, I’ll be ready for you.

Write There Challenge, Little Red Riding Hood Science Fiction!!

I love writing, and more specifically, I love surprising people. As writers, surprise is kind of in the bylines. When talking to authors, the one thing us lesser knowns, lesser reads are told is to Write, then Rewrite, Rewrite, Rewrite. This blog is a challenge to do exactly that 36/7 (with a little twist, of course). Here’s how.

Porn is a huge business. Want Nurses? Got ’em. Want Firemen? Got ’em. Want PuddingFarts? They got that, too. I wish they didn’t, but they do, and now I can’t eat pudding at anybody’s house, ever Never again.

Anyway, the point is you can see the same chick or rooster in pretty much any damn fake profession or world you want. It’s Duper customizable, so I thought, why not classic tales?

I will give you a story that has been retold several times over. Your mission, should you choose to text it, will be to take the story and retell it in several different ways from the below broad list of genres over the course of a week. That’s right. You’re dressing that hot subject up in the below genres and seeing how many spanks you get in response. Love it, hate it, then love it, again!

Genre list:
Monday Comedy/Humor/Satire

Tuesday Horror/Thrillers/Mysteries

Wednesday Science Fiction/Hard Scifi/Social Scifi

Thursday Fantasy/Contemporary Fantasy/Low Fantasy

Friday Fiction/Realistic Fiction/Dramas

Saturday Romance/Bromance

Sunday Non-fiction/Semi-fiction

Genres are not limited by what is listed above – just giving you a general idea of where to aim. Stories will be due back here in 36 hours. So, Sunday’s Non-Fiction will close Monday at noon, Monday’s Humor will close Tuesday at noon, so forth and so on. Minimum word count is five hundred, maximum is 1000. Some days you’ll be shorter, some days you’ll need every word. No restrictions for language (whether graphic or emphatically non-graphic).

Take it and do whatever you want with it behind closes doors. I’ll ignore each scream, thud, and sudden disappearance, like whoever the hell lived next to the red door house in Nightmare on Elm Street. Ya got my promise.

The winner will be picked by the most comments. (One per customer, y’all. I only have two eyes, so go easy on this McNugget.)

Why am I doing this? I need to get that creativity grinding. The best way to do that is to mix it up with other writers. With the different genres, it’ll be really fun to see what everyone comes up with. What does the winner get? More readers and a NitroMidget drawn (so probably not awesome, but damn it, I tried!) picture to put on your story as a winner.

Think outside the box, or in the box if you’re kinky like that. I don’t care. Pingback’s welcome, but the story must be pasted in the comments by noon tomorrow or it won’t be considered. No lates will be accepted, because the time crunch will just make me bitchy and you don’t want that.

So, let’s Do this! Second subject, THIRD Genre: Little Red Riding Hood SCIENCE FICTION!!

Wednesday @ noon for the SCIENCE FICTION challenge! So, sit down, pound it out, tweak it, bring your ABC game back and let me read it! Adios!

Genre Porn, First Challenge – Cinderella!

Did I get your attention? Good.

Porn is a huge business. You can see the same chick or rooster in pretty much any damn fake profession or world you want.

I love writing, and more specifically, I love surprising people. As writers, surprise is kind of in the bylines. When talking to authors, the one thing us lesser knowns, lesser reads are told is to Write, then Rewrite, Rewrite, Rewrite.

This blog is a challenge to do exactly that 24/7 (with a little twist, of course). Here’s how.

I will give you a story that has been previously told and retold several times over. Your mission, should you choose to text it, will be to take the story and retell it in several different ways from the below broad list of genres over the course of a week. That’s right. You’re dressing that hot subject up in the below genres and seeing how many spanks you get in response. Love it, hate it, then love it, again!

Genre list:
Monday Comedy/Humor/Satire

Tuesday Horror/Thrillers/Mysteries

Wednesday Science Fiction/Hard Scifi/Social Scifi

Thursday Fantasy/Contemporary Fantasy/Low Fantasy

Friday Fiction/Realistic Fiction/Dramas

Saturday Romance/Bromance

Sunday Non-fiction/Semi-fiction

Genres are not limited by what is listed above – just giving you a general idea of where to aim. Stories will be due back here 36 hours. Non-Fiction will close Monday at noon. You do not have to participate in every genre, or even most. Minimum word count is five hundred, maximum is 1000. Some days you’ll be shorter, some days you’ll need every word. No restrictions for language (whether graphic or emphatically non-graphic).

Take it and do whatever you want with it behind closes doors. I’ll ignore each scream, thud, and sudden disappearance, like whoever the hell lived next to the red door house in Nightmare on Elm Street. Ya got my promise.

I do encourage you to try your hand at the ones you’re not the most fond of, though. Writing, to me, is like being a chef. Even if he/she does not like baking, they should at least know how the basics of how to do it to enhance the other areas they enjoy.

The winner will be picked by the most comments. (One per customer, y’all. I only have two eyes, so go easy on this McNugget.)

Why am I doing this? I need to get that creativity grinding. The best way to do that is to mix it up with other writers. With the different genres, it’ll be really fun to see what everyone comes up with. What does the winner get? More readers and a nifty little picture to put on your story as a winner.

I know Non-fiction might throw us for a loop, but it can be taken from your own life or news stories (as long as they’re biographical). So, make yourself Prince Charming. When we do Sherlocks Holmes, write about Robert Ledru or Vidocq or even the kid who uses his iphone to remotely to track it back down after it’s been stolen. Think outside the box, or in the box if you’re kinky like that. I don’t care. Pingback’s welcome, but the story must be pasted in the comments by noon of the next day or it won’t be considered. No lates will accepted, because the time crunch will just make me bitchy and you don’t want that.

So, let’s Do this! First story, we’ll start off slow with:

Cinderella

We’ll start this week with Comedy, since it’s so late. So, write, and post back here by noon on Tuesday!
