Reena’s Exploration Challenge

I am struggling with a suitable name for instituting this challenge. Should I call it The Thinking Challenge? But when is it, that writers are not thinking? It becomes a pretty hum-drum, routine place.

Tomorrow, I am attending an event called Living Books, as a Reader. The job will be to listen to the stories of courageous people who have offered themselves as Living Books to be read and interpreted. My whole being is buzzing with anticipation. What new worlds will I get to explore?

Back to the challenge… the name really does not matter, and can be changed if good suggestions come up. The challenge is fairly simple.

See the picture which has a question or pointer or guideline inscribed on it. Interpret either one or the two together, and see which mental territories it takes you into. Going forward, we may add a twist or two, in the conditions.

The piece you write can be prose, fiction, a form of poetry that you are comfortable with, or any other experimental format that you devise. There is no restriction on the length either, except that the whole piece should appear in one part. Chain posts disturb the flow.

This will appear every Friday.

The next picture is the prompt.

Challenge #1

Happy Writing ……

  1. Great challenge, Reena! You are correct — writers are always thinking! I like the emphasis on “exploration” because that’s what we do as writers and even as readers. I’m updating a page at Carrot Ranch to feature the challenges from within our writing community. Do you want me to list this in that new page? It will be live by October 2.
