So, Friday I wasn’t able to lock and load a new flash fiction challenge — I got back too late from traveling, and whilst on the road it’s incredibly difficult to actually work on new blog stuff (WordPress in mobile format makes that trickier than I’d like). But, really, that’s probably okay — the flash challenges go by the wayside during the month of November for obvious reasons.
As such, I’d like to posit a different challenge:
Go to your online space.
Grab 1000 words of your NaNoWriMo work-in-progress (or, really, even if you’re not participating, any WIP of yours), and slap those 1000 words online for all to see.
Grab the 1000 best words — or, at least, the ones with which you are the happiest.
Then link that post back here in the comments.
No criticism necessary.
Just sharing the work. Camaraderie and commiseration.
DO IT NOW OR YOU GET THE HOSE

Our best 1000 words? Like, 1000 consecutive words? Oy ve. Well, here, how about 1000 of the most complete, least shitty writing I’ve done so far this month? Yeah? Yeah.
Here’s Evan’s Origin:
Hell yeah. Superhero crime drama? Color me aroused.. ahem… excited.
Is that a pen in your pocket or are ya happy to read me?
Thanks for the read 🙂

So this is a tad more than 1,000. This is a cool snippet from my prologue, which seems to be the only part of my NaNo I am completely okay with. Check it out if you would like, or if you have questions let me know. And Chuck… you rock my socks bud.
Very nice, Nicklaus Lindemann. Drew me right in!
[…] 99 per cent of the posts on this blog, this comes as a request/challenge/prod from Chuck Wendig. The idea was to post 1,000 words of one’s Nanowrimo project, or if not doing Nanowrimo post […]
I planned on doing Nanowrimo this year, and even had a good idea. Unfortunately my laptop is crapping out, my youngest kid is teething, and there are probably some other excuses I could dig up. So here is a chunk from something else I started: A medievalish adventure (I was thinking fantasy, but so far no fantasy elements) that I now want to get back to.
I decided to post another fragment, just because I’m pretty happy with how this turned out:
[…] week, instead of a new standalone story, I decided to follow Chuck Wendig’s prompt and give you a taste of the second book in my Deviant Behaviors series that picks up […]
It’s a bit less than 1,000, but it’s a great teaser into the story for those who might not have read the book that comes before it in the series.
