Writing Challenge Day 215: Wild Card Week Day 1

Just joined us? Jump in where you are. Don't feel you have to catch up, or to go back and start at the beginning. Just work on today's assignment. For more information about the challenge, read this post.


We're taking a little working vacay (heading down to the fabulous Utah Shakespeare Festival to see some shows and do some interviews for our upcoming biography on USF founder Fred Adams.) So we thought it would be a perfect time to shake things up a bit. It's up to you how you want to use your writing time this week. Need a break? No problemo: sleep in, catch up on laundry, watch fifteen minutes of guilt-free funny cat videos instead of writing. Are you on a roll and can't stop now? Great!! Keep going. Each day this week, pick something from the archive, this question list, or write more on something you wrote earlier.

Next week, we'll begin a series of posts that will help you start to put together all of these pearls of stories into a coherent narrative. See you next week!


  • Don't judge yourself. Don't edit. Just write. You will edit later. Now it's just about getting it down, for your eyes only.
  • If you want to keep going after the 15 minutes are up, go for it! 
  • Have a question or challenge or triumph to share? Feel free to comment below.
