30 Day i-Pod Challenge

April 12, 2012

This blog is initially my response to the wonderful Sally Quilford’s 30 day i-Pod Challenge.

The idea is to set your MP3 player to shuffle, and take the first song to play on the first day as a prompt for a short story.

On the second day you take the second, and so forth.

I am planning to post my pieces here, and I promise to take the songs precisely as they come up, but I can’t promise to post every single day.

At least it will hopefully get my muse off her ever-widening backside!  I hope that when the 30 day challenge is over, I shall be sufficiently trained to continue writing flashes, on different prompts.

We shall see …

    Good luck, Nicola! 🙂

  2. What a great idea and I love your Day 1 post 😀

    • Thank you Carol! I hope you’ll come back for more. I need this challenge to make me stick to writing something every day!

  3. This is such a cool project… I wonder what else could become prompts for short flashes?

    • Almost anything, Di! I’m thinking of maybe doing a random article search of Wikipedia each day after the 30 days is up. Do you have any other ideas? I’d be glad to hear them! Thanks for the comment.
