January! Welcome to the future!

Phew! After all of the hard work during November, and the mania during December, it’ll make a nice chance to slow things down here in January.

Many of you will be making new years resolutions, and I’m sure some of you will be planning on finally starting that novel you always dreamed of writing. What better way to kick-start that goal than with a Writing Challenge to warm up those pens and writing muscles?!

For the January Writing Challenge, please use the following Gens to write a short story, between 5,000 and 10,000 words (about 6 – 11 pages), before the 25th of the month.

The Gens to be used for this challenge are: the PlotMurphy’s Law, Archetype and Plot Device Gens.

Plot Gen (Free use): You may generate as many results as you like and use any ONE that you are happy with as the plot for your story. You may use Premise, Detailed, or Complete plot results.
You may NOT edit plots or mix-and-match plots.

Murphy’s Law (Semi-Restricted): Use this generator to add conflict and hiccups to your story. You may use as many results as you like, but you may only use NEGATIVE outcomes.

Archetype Gen (Semi-Restricted): Use this Gen to produce up to THREE possible archetypes, then choose ONE of three to use in your story. This character can be your main character, a secondary character, the antagonist; the choice is up to you as long as they are featured in your story somewhere; the more, the better.
You may NOT generate any more than THREE archetypes; once your three chances have been used, that’s it; you have to choose from one of the three characters, no matter how crazy or inappropriate they all may be!

Plot Device (Optional, Free use): Use this Gen if you wish to add an extra element to your story. You may use as many plot devices as you like.

You can write as many stories as you wish in any genres that you choose.

Send your stories to RanGen HERE (please don’t send them as attachments; put the story in the body of the email), and write your name (it doesn’t need to be your real name) and “January Writing Challenge” in the subject line. If you’re having trouble sending long stories in one email, split it in two and clearly mark both as part 1 and part 2.
Alternatively, you can create a free account on Wattpad and submit your stories there. Don’t forget to send me the link!

Be sure to include with your story the results of all the generators!
