Room 101

So, 30 prompts, 30 days, whatever 30 times 101 words amounts to…

Thanks to Michelle for the prompt

Okay this was scheduled but I want to be done with the challenge, so I am pressing publish right now! 

Now, as challenges go that was quite something .  I set myself the goal of using every single November daily writing prompt from Michelle’s page and to do a 101 words on each, all on something a bit weird or odd.

As a writing experience I tackled it by writing all the prompts on a page in word and then under each I bashed out the basic outline for the story and the twist.  The prompts really fired my imagination and I did the whole lot in one go and it took me about an hour or so.   A few changed as I progressed but for the most part what you see on my blog is what I planned on day one.

Now I only started the challenge on the tenth of November, so I thought I would do one a day and catch up the others along the way but as it turned out I wrote the first 8 in one day (as I had a day off work) and within 7 days I had written all 30.   Once I started I seemed to not be able to stop and it felt great ticking them off and completing that idea.

I’m not quite sure where I found the time but the planning helped in that I was working on them in my head before I started writing.  A few took some heavy editing in terms of word count early on but by the 30th post I could mostly write it and come in at about 100 words without trying.

What I like is that I think I could probably do something more substantial with each one so am really happy with it as a process, even if some of them are a bit crap.

Anyway, thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed them and thanks again M for the prompts, they were fab!  If you don’t follow Michelle you should.  Do it.

  2. I just did them here and there. I also did something called Trifecta for a while. 33 word posts on a theme, or 333 word stories once a week.

  3. I’m so glad you did all of them. Your stories have been great fun to read. If you ever get bored and need another challenge, I’ll have more prompts coming in December. You may have actually ended up the only person to do them all. There’s still time, so we’ll see if anybody else catches up to you. Well done Michael! Thanks for bringing the laughter and smiles. 🙂
