Writer Wednesday is 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.
- 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 were inspired by Ground Hog Day.
Here are the entries that took us up on our
"The Shadow Knows" writing challenge:
As soon as I wake up[ in my warm and mossy den, the anxiety begins to build. I can’t see my shadow, and I don’t know what he’s been up to. I know it’s important to keep track of my shadow. I learned that from reading about Jungian Psychology on Wikipedia.
((Cue fight music, punches thrown, oof uff, smack, giggles))
Who giggles during a fight scene?
THE SHADOW DOES!!!
Recipes for groundhog are variations of squirrel recipes, with the
addendum to cure the groundhog in salt water for 6 to 12 hours first
and remove the scent glands on the back and forelegs.
The chemo was supposed to help him but instead it devoured anything that was left of value in his body. Death was upon him and she removed the mat so as not to encourage an unwelcome visit from the darkening shadows that were accumulating outside the front door in anticipation. The shadows knew and were ready to take Carl any chance they could get.
