Do you know that feeling when you discover a layer of dust on furniture or items you haven’t used for some time? That thin film of grime that softly, silently settles when you aren’t looking? Well, it can happen to our creativity too – so let’s shake off the dust… We have a story challenge for you.
Today only (Thursday 29 April 2021), we’d like you to write us a micro story that’s no more than 29 words (after all, it’s the 29th). The theme of your story is ROAD TRIP. Make it funny, serious, dark, hopeful, nostalgic or romantic – whatever you can pack into 29 words.
Write as many stories as you want – submit them below. We'll be sharing a selection of our favourites in the coming weeks.
And if you enjoy fun little creative challenges like this, OR if it feels like that layer of dust has been settling more and more lately, it could be worth joining our MOJO MONTH event starting on Saturday 1 May. Every day in May, you’ll unlock a bunch of writing and mindfulness goodies, plus fun tasks to strengthen your creativity – sharing with fellow MOJO members along the way. The theme is “creative road trip” and the team has prepared a fun itinerary for you to enjoy.
Submit your 29-word story with the theme of “ROAD TRIP” by completing the form below.
(Hyphenated words count as one word.)
Entries close midnight Thursday 29 April 2021. Happy writing!
THIS CHALLENGE HAS NOW CLOSED – THANKS FOR YOUR TAKING PART! WE'LL SHARE A SELECTION OF FAVOURITE STORIES IN THE COMING WEEKS. KEEP AN EYE ON THE WEEKLY NEWSLETTER.
