Writer Wednesday is a new Zoomers.ca feature where we issue a weekly open call on a particular theme or subject that our community of bloggers are welcomed to participate in.
If you're a blogger that's interested in getting a handle on your craft (or even connecting with an audience!) then this is definitely the challenge for you.
How Does It Work?
Every Friday, we issue the theme or subject via a blog post that will be featured in our Friday newsletter.
To participate, simply post a blog on that theme, but tag that post with "writer wednesday" (within quotes, all lowercase) before the following Wednesday at 12PM EST.
Zoomers How-To: Blog
When Writer Wednesday hits, we then do the following:
- Round-up all the participating entries in a entry such as this.
- Feature all the participating entries in our Friday newsletter that goes directly to our over 12,000 members.
- Feature all the participating entries via our
Twitter with the popular #writerwednesday hashtag.
- Select our personal favourite that will be featured to the over 13,000 members in our
Zoomers on Facebook community.
In the latest edition of this feature, we put a call out for pieces that explored monarchy.
Here are the entries that took us up on our
"Monarchy" writing challenge:
My Grandmother and I would share her cotton handkerchief many times during this particular TV show on a weekly basis. Queen For a Day is where I learned how to pity-cry on the spot and acquired knowledge about Ex-Lax and Sarah Coventry jewelry.
The king's appearance in those long lost happy days truly reflected the state of his life up to that time. Here was a fat and happy, yet somewhat lacking in charisma king.
If only The King of Burgers had been able to accept his small and happy place among the world of kings, I could end the story here with a “happily ever after” closing. Alas this was not The King of Burgers' fate.
"No off with their heads!" she said, or how I imagine she says when she's bored with Queening away.
The jester, a jolly fellow, when he was on his meds, was called out.
"Entertain me!" she bequested.
Thanks to Jason, Steve and Linda for all their hard work! Please support our writers' original works by visiting their individual blogs as well as leaving comments.
Stay tuned this Friday for the next theme!
