=== What it is: ===
Write a single-post short story in response to a theme chosen weekly (posted with the #WedC tag.)
=== How it works ===
# Write a 1 post entry based around the week’s theme, chosen each Wednesday. # Post it, remembering to include either the hashtag [https://pnut.io/tags/WedC #WedC] (preferred) or [https://pnut.io/tags/WednesdayChallenge #WednesdayChallenge] if your muse isn’t being helpful and you need to fill space!
=== How it started: ===
On App.net, @nitinkhanna called for the first Wednesday Challenge and @duerig, creator of Patter, suggested it be a weekly thing. This conversation took place in the Writers Write room set up by @richardleis., who introduced the #hourofwriting, a similar challenge activity, during which people write at the same time for an hour non-stop.
=== Deutsch: === * From [ https://posts. pnut. io/64400| @schmidt_fu’s pnut. io post:]
: “Guten Abend, nach altem Brauch ([https://pnut.io/tags/WednesdayChallenge #WednesdayChallenge]) rufe ich auf, eine kurze Geschichte zu schreiben. Sie passe in 256 Zeichen, trage das Zeichen [https://pnut.io/tags/WedC #WedC] oder [https://pnut.io/tags/MitC #MitC] und treffe das Thema dieser Woche “Links” (Deutsch oder Englisch) [https://pnut.io/tags/MittwochsChallenge #MittwochsChallenge]” === More === * An extended version can be posted elsewhere (e.g. your own blog.) Though the challenge starts on Wednesday there are no pressures to hit deadlines - writing runs for the full week. You don’t even have to publicize your involvement, if writing is the thing that spreads your toes. * Given the 256-character post limit most people will use #WedC. The original #WednesdayChallenge tag was abbreviated in response to the inevitable observation that 14 superfluous character of tag is silly. === Prompts ===
* August 1: "readme"
* July 25: "wildfire"
* February 21: "rān|reyn|reɪn"

#WednesdayChallenge - @nitinkhanna: Write a short story in 256 characters involving the words "Pope","battle" and "moon".The wilder the better. :) - app.net, March 13 2013. #@duerig: That was fun. We should do this every wednesday. - Writer's Write Patter archive, March 13 2013 #@pamdavis: We also used to do #hourofwriting, which anyone could call for. That was started by the room owner @richardleis. - app.net, October 2013 recollection. #@richardleis: I got the idea for #hourofwriting from Jane Espenson (TV writer and producer). She often calls for one on Twitter. Hope your writing is going well! - app.net, April 2013. #@thelma: @duerig That actually sounds great! If @bazbt3 and @annatarkov concur, we can let everyone know? @nitinkhanna said he wanted to sit this week out. - app.net, October 2013
