Writing Challenge: How Many Times Can You Rewrite the Same Boring Story?

Hello Everybody!

(Long time, no see, sorry.) 🙂

I’ve just shared a writing challenge with some blogging friends elsewhere and I thought some of you might be interested to take it up too.

The idea came to me because where I am we’re in lockdown again and because of that I restarted my Lockdown Diaries. But I quickly realised that there is nothing much happening and that reminded me of an old favourite book:

Exercises in Style by Raymond Queneau

In this book Queneau re-wrote the same bland incident in ninety-nine different styles – can you match it?

The challenge is simple: Every day I publish a diary entry (between 4 and 6 pm GMT, typically) in one those styles, accompanied by Queneau’s original.

My yesterday entry is here: Lockdown Diaries II, Day 7: You Know

I invite you to write a reply in that same style. You can post it in the comment section on my blog or if you prefer, on your own blog and link to my blog and/or leave a message for me in the comments so that I can come and read your entry.

Please note this is not a competition with prizes just a little blogging fun!
