A Blogging Challenge

In response to my last post, which included me mentioning that I've had to write articles from one or two word prompts, Debra essentially challenged me to write a blog post based on a few word suggestions from you folks. Her two suggestions were "mysterious ailments" and "favourite shampoos". After Captain seconded the idea it was pretty much guaranteed that I'd do it.

Congrats to anyone who gets this. I couldn't find itin gif form. 
The Beer for The Shower boys thirded the idea with their suggestions of "jiggliest animals" and "angriest robots".  I'm already regretting this decision.

 It actually works out pretty well for me though. See I'm going away for a week at the end of next week. So these "challenge posts" as it were would be a great way to populate the blog while I'm away. I can get them all written up before I leave and have it be something I don't need to worry about.

I suppose this does mean that technically I'll have written for free though. It's all fine as long as none of you use these posts for commercial purposes. Then it's technically just blogging.

I get ideas for posts and you guys get to see my writing prowess in action. If there are too many suggestions then I might have to cover more than one thing in the same post, meaning they don't get a dedicated post, but that's life.

So there you have it. Throw some suggestions at me and I'll see what I can do with them.

  1. Is it just going to be blog posts/articles, or are you also going to treat some of them as short story prompts? That might be really fun as well, a couple of paragraphs of silly prompt-inspired fiction.
    "Occupied." "Sinking ship." "Catalyst."

  2. great idea from Debra, it sounds like fun! Maybe put a copyright note on the post. How about 'baby booties', 'blue lobster', 'on humanity'

  3. I decided to use a random word generator http://www.textfixer.com/tools/random-words.php to chose my 2 words. I got Sexiest Daredevil. I kid you not.
