I'll be doing a bit of final packing for my trip to Europe, so I'm going to get right to it.
The theme for May/June is:
Take your favorite famous book. Write a scene from it. In a totally different genre.
Bonus points if the reader can guess the original book without you telling us. More points if you can do the scene without it strictly being from the book itself, but we get the same sense from it.
Word Count: No more than 300 words.
Closing Date: 30 June 2013
Prizes: $10 Amazon Voucher or a 10 chapter critique by me or a query critique by me.
PLEASE NOTE!!! Don't enter your link until you've written your entry. I want to be linked directly to your Word Master Challenge Post. NOT to your blog's home page. Also, please make it clear that the entry is in fact for the Challenge. I don't want to wonder about this later. Easiest way to do this is to copy/paste the badge above. Or to start the post's title with "Word Master Challenge".
That's it from me. What do you think of the Challenge's theme?
See you in about ten days!

I think so too. Have tried it myself on occasion, (take one Bible book and write it as Sci Fi) and came up with some seriously interesting results. :-)Delete
What a fun idea! Wish I could participate but we're in the chute for our summer holiday.ReplyDelete

I do do them every so often. Thanks for stopping by!Delete
Have a lovely trip. I hope you share some pics and stories on your way back. And I'm winking at this challenge. I think I'll spread the word, too...ReplyDelete
Oh I definitely will be sharing pics. Probably on my other blog, though. :-)Delete
Oh, I guess I posted mine. Ever forget you scheduled a post?ReplyDelete
Oh yeah. I also forget to schedule posts. ;-) Thanks for entering!Delete
Eek! I needed to resubmit mine when I found the first link I posted didn't work because of a spelling error. I am very sorry about the mix up. But I'm psyched to read all the entries that come in. This was a fun project. It even inspired my husband!ReplyDelete
Another great idea, Misha. Now if part of your trip goes to Scotland, I am going to be really jealous! ;)ReplyDelete
