SADM 2018 – Day 4: Tell A Story In 40 Minutes

The Prompt:

Set A Timer For 40 Minutes, Write A Story

Spend 10 minutes brainstorming and starting the story, 20 minutes complicating your character’s life, and the final 10 minutes reviewing what you’ve written, making notes and writing an ending.


This year I won’t be publishing the stories here as I want to send them off somewhere and blogging online counts as published which most outlets won’t accept but will let you know each day how I got on the previous day… so you know I’m doing the challenge with me. Do leave a comment below to let me know how you do.

And me? Erm… way behind but I plan to catch up next week.
