Challenges, Challenges Everywhere!
In the comments of another post, Zolo77 issued a challenge. Just to make sure that all of our expansive list of readers didn't miss it, I wanted to repost the challenge here. I also thought I'd throw in another challenge, albeit a little bit of a different one, just so we could have lots of ideas to choose from.
So, Zolo77's Challenge went like this:
1. Must be centralized around Han and Leia (duh)
2. Include a confession from either.
3. Timeline: from post Truce at Bakura to beginning of Courtship of Leia.
My new challenge was maybe not a story, but it could be depending on what inspires you. My challenge is to write up what the New Year's Resolutions of your favorite characters would be. It kinda goes with the poll that just closed. Just to recap, topping our polls were: Han Solo in 1st place, Darth Vader in 2nd place and Leia and Lando tied for third. This could just be a list or, as I said, perhaps a short story. Just wondering what some of those ideas were that went along with those votes.
Lastly, don't forget that we have the call out for Valentine's Day mushy stories. So, THREE challenges in all. Surely one of those should inspire you. Am I right?
Good Luck and Happy Writing. And remember, it goes like this: We set the challenge, you write something down and send it to us and then we publish... Easy, cheesy, lemon squeezy. :-)
P.S. We haven't done this in awhile, but remember how we used to assign quotes to some of the pictures we posted? Well, when I was picking this one out (at top) I thought of this quote:
Han: "See, Leia? They're out there, writing stories about us and talking about us."
