Well 2017 IS OVER! Can you believe this is the final challenge! We have completed 52 challenges over all 52 weeks of 2017.
Of course, the challenges wouldn’t have worked if it wasn’t for the dedication of you guys. I wanted to thank you so much to everyone for participating. Especially those who either joined in every single challenge, or who joined in the majority, there are plenty of you and I can’t name everyone but a few thank yous to:
I love reading your entries and I wish that I could continue to run this challenge. But as you know, some weeks ago, I had to stop the weekly round ups. As a full time worker bee, I only get a couple of hours an evening to write, so I took the sad decision to stop the round ups as sometimes they would take 3 or 4 hours to do. I think this was the right decision because it’s meant I’ve ended this year having published three books and with a fourth nearing completion of it’s first draft.
After nearly five years of prompts, I’ve decided not to continue the writespiration series on a weekly basis. I started them because I wanted to join in, and because I wanted to read others work and be a part of the community. While that much remains true, I would like to read more of your novels so I can support you by leaving reviews. About half the books I’ve read this year were written by Indies, and I intend to continue that trend into 2018.
I’ve also decided to publish a writing prompts/writers ‘unblocking’ book. While I can’t continue the weekly prompts, I can turn my knowledge of writing, prompts, inspiration, how to keep those words pumping out ‘know how’ as well as tips on how ‘not’ to get blocked into a novel. So I will. But more on that another time.
So this is it. It’s not good bye, but it is ta-ta for now.
Thank you all, so much for such a wonderful year of prompts, flash and 52 words.
As always your, final challenge is to write your story in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.
Submit your entries in the comments (which are open) or on a blog post and use a ping back.
This week share the last 52 words you wrote on your current WIP.
So long, and thanks for all the words :p
