Revision as of 06:44, 4 September 2019

Write a single-post short story in response to a prompt 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 tag #WedC (preferred) or #WednesdayChallenge if your muse isn’t being helpful and you need to fill space!

More answers to questions

  • 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.

History

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.
