As a little treat, I thought I'd share the results of a fun challenge I did back in February. Fellow authors and Instagrammers Beverly Lee (@theconstantvoice) and James Fahy (@jamesfahyauthor) held a six word story challenge for the month of February. It was so much fun!!! I really enjoyed it for me, but more than that, I enjoyed seeing everyone else's submissions more. It's so interesting to see multiple interpretations of the same prompt. Some were deliciously dark, some were puns, and others were just unique. I loved it! In fact, I'm trying to cook up something similar for the future, which I'll announce on Instagram once I get it all done up ( @danafraedrich). In no particular order, here are some of the new friends and/or people I got to know better during that challenge: @pacificnwauthor, @beckywrightauthor, @faith_therivens, @r0se_read, @abiwriting, @theconstantvoice, @julietboydauthor, @jamesfahyauthor, and @wherethereadergrows . These are all wonderful people who love books and writing, and I highly recommending following them. You can also see all the wonderful submissions for this challenge by looking up the hashtag #shayverlee6wordstory on Instagram, which is also something I highly recommend doing. Here are all of mine:
I was challenged (6 words is not much to work with!), I learned things (I had never heard of Lupercalia and so had to look it up), and I met some lovely people. Thanks for popping by today!
