It’s been a while so this is for you who need to keep your technical skills in shape.
Challenge: First person, present tense.
“I walk into the room, and of course I see Fuji sitting there. He’s reclining on the couch like he belongs there, like usual, but there’s a glimmer in his eye... I wonder if something is up?”
Any fandom, any topic.
You can take a down n dirty route and take 15 minutes or take a longer time and write for 60 minutes.
Second Challenge: Vacation
Don’t we all need one?
You can take ‘vacation’ literally, as in exotic locales, lovely weather, and lingering dinners for two.
Or interpret ’vacation’ more abstractly, as in a vacation from the norm, an extended absence, a positive retreat, etc. You don’t necessarily need to include the word “vacation” in your story (though it would probably be helpful in most cases), just make it the theme!
You have 60 minutes to get away from it all.
