Back to school time, and back to work!
NaNoWriMo, is creeping closer, so if you’re going to take part, time to start mentally preparing for the challenge. Not everyone has endless time to sit and write at their leisure, so most of us will have to fit it in around hectic schedules. Planning ahead of time can help!
Once again, thank you to everyone who sent a message, donated, gave a broken Gen alert or suggested new Gens; new ones are on the way! Don’t forget to follow RanGen on Facebook and Twitter for updates and random silliness!
And now for the September Writing Challenge. The Gens we’ll be using this month are:
City Gen (Free use): Use this Gen to determine the location of your story. You may generate any number of cities and use one or more as the locations in your story.
You may NOT edit plots or mix-and-match city results.
Law Gen (Free use): Use this Gen to produce a selection of laws for your city. You may use as many laws as you like.
Fantasy Race Gen (Semi-restricted): Use this Gen to create a featured race in your story. You can create as many as you want and they can be the protagonists or antagonists etc, but they MUST be a main part of the story.
Using these Gens, write a short story between 5,000 and 10,000 words (about 6 – 11 pages), before the 25th of the month.
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 “September 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, ect.
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! Time to get writing; have fun!
