I want to try doing a 30 day creative writing challenge right after finishing exams. Sort of like NaNoWriMo but without the pressure of having to write an insane amount of words each day. As well as more variety, which should make it easier to stick to. I will list the prompts and then stop thinking about blogging or looking at other people's blogs until the 21st. Here they are:
Day 1: Re-write a classic fairy tale
Day 2: Write a fanfiction
Day 3: A story that takes place pre-1950
Day 4: A poem using the words: blue, mistrust, half, twang
