July Writing Challenge

Aha! Bet you didn’t know I was still alive, did you? Rest assured that I am, and come bringing the July Writing Challenge, as well as a new Gen I’m experimenting with.

After sitting and looking at a tower way off in the distance, wondering how long it would take to walk there, I considered how long it takes the heroes in fantasy stories to travel from A to B (when A to B usually appears to be 5,000 miles at least by the look of the maps and the amount of time they’re on the road). From that thought came the Journey Gen!

It calculates how long it would take to travel any distance at a consistent speed, along with time spent sleeping, then gives you a realistic estimate of how long it would take to make that journey. Throw in some time for delays and back-tracking and voila! Total journey time calculated, with story ideas thrown in for free; what could possibly have happened to your characters on a journey that was supposed to take only 1 day, but ended up taking 4?

Check it out, let me know what you guys think, and let’s watch this Gen grow!

Now on to the July Writing Challenge.

Use these Gens to write a short story, between 5,000 and 10,000 words (about 6 – 11 pages), before the 25th of the month.

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 Gen (Free Use): Use this Gen to help or hinder your characters. (Hindrance is better though!) You may use this as many times as you like.

Motive Gen (Free use): Use this Gen to give a goal to one of your characters. This goal must apply to the main or secondary character.

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 “JuneWriting 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!
