Okay, I had some problems with this week’s Spookymilk’s WGOM writer’s challenge. I might get a little overly critical here about this particular challenge, but I can do so knowing that our judges don’t read anything said at ol’ “é rayhahn, rayhahn” at all. The challenge: create a challenge for later in the game. Yep, that’s it.
The Winner Group once more nailed down the high team average, continuing to live up to our name. Results
Okay, the problem I have with this challenge is that it really isn’t a writing challenge. What it is is doing the job of our lazy judges. This isn’t a challenge, it’s a discussion among people with drinks sitting around a hotel bar table. It’s a Facebook IM. It’s a conversation to pass the time on a long road trip.
Well anyway, here is what I submitted:
| Challenge #___: So, Do You Like It, Or Don’t You?
This week’s challenge is to write a short positive review of a book (of your own creation), followed by a short negative review of that same book. 10 points are awarded: 2 points for the book idea and title, 4 points for the positive review, and 4 points for the negative review.
I was a little terse with my submission, but I just wasn’t getting into the spirit of it. I have a great idea for a book (don’t get me started on that; it’s already been stolen) that I’d love to used, but that’s getting ahead of ourselves here. Hopefully tomorrow’s challenge announcement will require some good imagination and, you know, some actual writing maybe? B^P
