As humans, we love stories: by telling them we teach, by listening to them, we learn. Creative Writing Challenges help you to push your writing boundaries, pad your writing toolkit, and improve your writing skills.
To participate, tag your post with DPchallenge or leave a link to your post in the comments. Your post should be specifically written in response to this challenge. We’ll keep an eye on the tag and highlight some of our favorite posts on Freshly Pressed on Friday.
Back in January, I wrote a challenge called The Devil is in the Details. In that post, I asked you to imagine a scene and describe it in vivid detail: the sights, the sounds, the smells, the location, the way the light fell — each detail designed to bring the scene into ever-sharpening focus in the reader’s mind.
