The September Writing Challenge begins here!
The objective of the challenge is to use the aforementioned Gens and turn their results into a short story between 5,000 and 10,000 words (about 6 – 11 pages). The specifications are as follows:
Quick Character Gen (Free Use): Use this Gen to generate a character or two for your story. You may have as many characters as you like, and the characters can be main, secondary or background characters, as long as they are visible somewhere.
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.
Super Power Gen (Semi-restricted): Use this Gen to to choose up to TWO super powers for your chosen character. You may choose any combination of results that are generated.
You are free to use any other Gens to help you with your story.
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.
Be sure to include with your story the results of all the generators aforementioned Gens, and the results of any other Gens that you use!
After the 25th, the stories will be made available to read on the site and the winners will be selected and announced on the site.
