(Wednesday Writing Essentials – WWE 4/4/12 -Lottery)

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on April 3, 2012 0 Comments


This Week’s Challenge:

Craig M. challenged me to challenge you to pretend you had won the mega million dollar lottery.  He questioned whether it would make your life perfect or send you down the path of ruin (both in life and eternally). Would you make the world a better place or just waste it all?

Of course, I glommed onto this challenge. It is such an open, anything goes prompt. I didn’t win the lottery so I’ll be writing a fiction. I blame my hubby for this situation. He didn’t buy me a ticket. Gull durn it.

My short attention span sent me wandering into questions like whether or not I’d hide. Would I still be the penny pincher I’ve always been? Would my head swell? Stay tuned – the answers will be in the responses.

Ideas: I’ll be anxiously waiting to read your ideas.

Suggestions: Sure, please correct my grammar and send me challenges you’d like to see.

The Rules:

Make sure you put this (Wednesday Writing Essentials – WWE – Lottery) in your title.

Be sure to tag it with WWE, Lottery, Gather Writing Essentials.

Post to Gather Writing Essential.

I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon.

There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.

Most important:

Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.


What did you do when you won the mega million dollar lottery?


Check out these responses from last Wednesday’s and the prior WWE challenge – they’re awesome.
