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.
When Writer Wednesday hits, we then do the following:
In the latest edition of this feature, we put a call out for pieces that explored "Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes."
Here are the entries that took us up on our "And the Award Goes to..." writing challenge:
The next week came far too soon, and I found myself standing in front of 60 people with question marks on their faces. As I began my class, one by one they left like rats jumping off a sinking ship.

I have always been observant and conscious of my brothers' moods. This level of awareness is a necessity for survival in a community like ours. After all, living in a monastery offers all the challenges getting along faced by married people, except I am married to twenty-three.
When the time of the practical exam approached, the gynaecologist prepared carefully for weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill. When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of 150%.
Stay tuned this Friday for the next theme!
