It’s Sunday. That means we have a winner for the second #SSC and a brand new challenge to build those writing muscles!
The winner for the second Scribbles on Cocktail Napkins Sunday Scribble Challenge is Julianne Hildebrand Winter (J.H. Winter). Julianne is a fantasy writer geared toward Middle Grade and Young Adult readers, and the author of Ink and Stitches: The Writerly and Creative Life of J.H. Winter.
The prompt for that week?
Your character is a villain. Your goal this week is to get your reader to root for him or her in as few words as possible.
The brilliant Julianne’s winning submission:
I wasn’t born this way…I was MADE this way. Words hurt and I wouldn’t let them hurt me anymore. I know they say let sleeping dogs lie, but Grawk was hungry for blood, and I didn’t have the strength to stop him from attaining his meal.
Thank you for participating in the challenge, J. H.! I’d like to invite you and/or your work to be featured in an upcoming post on Scribbles on Cocktail Napkins. This can be done in whatever way you like. A reblog, a guest blog, a new interview about a favorite project, or even a small sample of your latest book along with a purchasing link. You decide!
Now, without any further ado, let’s get to our next Scribble Challenge!! Here’s the new prompt:
The Rules: You have six days to ruminate if you need them. Post one submission to the prompt in the comment section below. The deadline? Saturday, April 23rd @noon Atlantic Daylight Time.
