    Challenge Type + Description

    Image Challenge

    Copy and paste the following description.

    Plot Challenge

    Copy and paste the following description.

    A plot challenge is where you are given a word, a phrase, a sentence, or a setting and you have to come up with a plot idea that is inspired by those words! The object is to think fast and share the first ideas that come to mind. It's an exercise in quick creative thinking. This isn't about writing scenes. You are to write down a plot premise or basic idea.
    If you decide to borrow someone's concept for a story or roleplay, make sure you ask permission and give credit to the muse. Also, please notify the challenge creator of this.

    Theme Song Challenge

    Copy and paste the following description.

    Music touches people in different ways. Many people enjoy listening to music for inspiration, and others simply listen to it to relax. Some songs tell stories while others allow you to create your own.
    Listen to the song in the 'Prompt' section, then take a minute or two to think about it. Write out a scene to this song; make this song your scene's theme song. Let me know what you see when you listen to this music.

    Character Creation

    Copy and paste the following description.

    This challenge is one about making characters based on the setting that they're destined for and also just a fun romp with one of the most creative aspects of writing: character making. Based on the image posted in the 'Prompt' section, my challenge is for you to create a character for that setting and post it here! Feel free to utilize this character sheet or create your own:
    Current Goal/Purpose:

    Character Development

    Copy and paste the following description:

    This challenge will help you with one of the most crucial fundamentals of writing - getting in character. Getting in character makes writing feel less like a chore and it makes your writing more interesting to read. Much like roleplaying, you will be given a situation and you will respond to it using a character you've made. First, fill out this form for your character and keep the details short.

    Use the following format for 'Prompt' section:

    Situation Title
    Questions to consider (5 to 8 questions)

    Five Words Challenge

    Copy and paste the following description:

    This challenge is to help strengthen your vocabulary. You'll learn new words and how to use them in your writing. The instructions are simple, writing a piece of prose including all five words in the 'Prompt' section.

    Use the following format for 'Prompt' section:

    1) Word (n./v./adj./adv.) - Definition
    2) Word (n./v./adj./adv.) - Definition
    3) ... etc

    Myth-Take Challenge

    Copy and paste the following description:

    Myths and legends could be said to be the prototypes of modern novels. They are stories in their own right, tales that were passed on for generations. Even today, some elements from the old myths remain in our stories and occasionally, they serve as inspiration. Your challenge is to write a story that incorporates your own take on this mythical element. The genre and setting of the story does not matter as long as the element remains recognisable.

    Use the following format for 'Prompt' section:

    Mythical Element:
    Image: (opt)
    Mythos: i.e. Where does this come from? Ancient Greek mythology? Far eastern tribal mythologies?
    Description: Short description of the mythical element.

    The challenge creator must first request relevant permissions before making a challenge that does not fit into any of the above. This may be a poetry challenge, personal writing challenge etc.
