The May Writing Challenge

We’re on the cusp of summer. (At least in the upper Northern hemisphere anyway…) Things are starting to heat up, and joy, fun and games are starting to take a more prominent place in people’s minds. What better time than to make things awkward and uncomfortable by using this month’s prompts; the Awkward Moments, Archetype and Pet Gens.

The theme of this month’s challenge is ACCOUNTABILITY, and there are strict restrictions in place for the rules.

The objective of the challenge is to use the aforementioned Gens and turn their results into a short story of at least 10,000 words before the end of the month.

The challenge specifications are as follows:


Awkward Moments Gen (Restricted rolls x1): Use this Gen to produce a major driving force or focal point of the story.

Archetype Gen (Restricted rolls x1): Use this Gen to establish some characters for your story. They can be friends, family or strangers to each other. You can use any of the 4 options; Scenario might be especially useful.

Pet Gen (Restricted rolls x1): Use this Gen to provide your character(s) with a furry, feathery or scaley friend to help them get through the awkward times. Or make things worse, idk.


For each of the above Gens, the following ruleset applies:

Restricted rolls: Roll once.

  • You must use the results from this roll.
  • Do not ignore the generated details; try to use as much of them as you can.
  • Choose whatever options you like.
  • You can also use results from any other Gen as you wish, as long as they don’t change your existing details. Existing details from this Gen override details from additional Gens.

Submitting your story:


Be sure to include the generated results where possible so that we can see what you were working with. Please include a name with your story (real or a username) and age (or age-range), and let me know if you’re happy for me to share/quote your story. (Your story belongs to you though; I’m not going to run off with it! :D)

You must mention if your story is NSFW or if it includes sensitive themes or gore/violence, etc. Give your story an age rating if necessary!

Sharing your story:

Upload your story to your preferred service then share the URL. Post the link on your social media accounts and include the hashtag #RangenWritingChallenge, so the world can read your story! Don’t forget to tag me!
