What it is:
Write a single-post short story in response to a theme chosen weekly (posted with #WedC or #WednesdayChallenge hashtags.)
How it started:
For more detail see the App.net Wiki page.
How it works:
- Write a 1 post entry based around the week's theme, chosen each Wednesday.
- Post it, remembering to include either the hashtag #WedC (preferred) or #WednesdayChallenge if your muse isn't being helpful and you need to fill space!
"Guten Abend, nach altem Brauch (#WednesdayChallenge) rufe ich auf, eine kurze Geschichte zu schreiben. Sie passe in 256 Zeichen, trage das Zeichen #WedC oder #MitC und treffe das Thema dieser Woche "Links" (deutsch oder englisch)
- An extended version can be posted elsewhere (e.g. your own blog.) Though the challenge starts on Wednesday there are no pressures to hit deadlines - writing runs for the full week. You don't even have to publicise your involvement, if writing is the thing that spreads your toes.
- Given the 256-character post limit most people will use #WedC. The original #WednesdayChallenge hashtag was abbreviated in response to the inevitable observation that 14 superfluous character of tag is silly.
