Calling All Writers!

Welcome to The RedInkling’s very first Writing Workshop Challenge!

One of my main goals with this blog is to use it as a platform for communication with other writers. I move around too much to really get involved with a workshop group in my local area and I think it would be so amazing if writers could share their work with a group of people who are mutually invested in improving their writing and having as much fun as possible.

You, my reader, are a rare gem. You’re like a majestic sea turtle; you’re beautiful and unique and there aren’t that many of you. BUT! If we all work together, I think that we can build a respectful and productive community of writers. So let’s get started! Here’s how it will work:

  • I’ll post a picture.
  • The writers’ mission will be to use the photo as a prompt to write a story, a poem, a description; whatever you want. Be creative and have fun with it!
  • Then, post your piece on your blog with a link back to this page. You can title it whatever you want, just make sure to link back so I know that you’ve posted something.
  • I’ll post links on here to each of your posts and then
  • we can have an online workshop! You will be able to click through everyone else’s work from here. Read each one and comment on what you like but especially on what you think could be improved. Be constructive and give the type of feedback that you would like to receive. Make sure to vote for your favorites with likes!

Hopefully this will be a beneficial experience and, we’ll all get to read and write some really fun stuff! So if you’d like to participate, check out the photo below and then get writing!

    Here is a great writing challenge for you from an awesome writing blog I follow. I am including my response to the picture prompt below.

    Can you be a fraction of a person? What does it really mean to be one quarter this or one-eighth that? Just being told that you are part Cherokee, is that supposed to change you? Is that supposed to explain something?
    She knew the feel of grass between her bare toes and drying mud caked on her hands. But was that enough? She wasn’t sure. She felt a pull in her spirit, coursing through her veins, drawing her out, calling to her.
    It was one thing to play outside as a child, but spending a weekend in the wild? Making a conscious decision as an adult to seek out answers to questions that hadn’t even fully formed?
    She packed quickly, throwing food and a change of clothes into the backseat of her SUV. She grabbed blankets and the tent – a Christmas gift still in an unopened box. She told no one of her plans. That was her first mistake.
