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 === More answers 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!questions ===
=== How it started: ===* 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 characters of tag is silly.
On App.net, @nitinkhanna called for the first Wednesday Challenge[1] and @duerig, creator of Patter, suggested it be a weekly thing[2]. This conversation took place in the Writers Write room set up by @richardleis.[3], who introduced the #hourofwriting[4], a similar challenge activity, during which people write at the same time for an hour non-stop.== History ==
