Welcome to #WEP - Write...Edit...Publish AUGUST Challenge -- CHANGE OF HEART

Hello there beloved writers!

It's time for our AUGUST challenge, CHANGE OF HEART.

This month, we welcome writers from the IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) who are joining the challenge. Some are already regulars and I'm hoping many more will become part of the WEP team as well.

The WEP team have a GUEST POST on the IWSG website on August 6. Here is the link which won't go live until August 6:  
http://www.insecurewriterssupportgroup.com/2018/08/writing-together-with-wep-and-iswg.html

Here are some suggestions for this challenge:
  • a commitment made when a prospect looked attractive, 
  • a decision on a course of action, and then regrets and reluctance to follow through,  
  • an engagement, a date, a diet plan, a chore someone said they’d do and didn’t follow through,  
  • a strip poker-game. Or maybe a gamble with super-high, panic inducing stakes, 
  • a break for independence that once made, gives pause for second thoughts,
  • a bolt for the grass-always-greener pasture and then wanting to vault-n-turn right back,
  • a broken relationship where one/both parties regret the loss
  • something offered, then withdrawn.  

Myriad ways to go.  

Over to you. Sign up now. Please remember to add WEP to your post title so it's easily spotted. We like to have all participants on the blogroll, please have a quick scan and tell us if your blog is missing and email Denise if it's not there!

    2. Except I should have waited and posted on August 15th - amendment in the works.

      Delete
    3. I almost did the same! Caught it just in time and scheduled it for next week.

      Delete
    4. Roland you can add a permalink which is what I thought you’d done. Most people don’t start reading till the due date. Don’t worry about it. We’re relaxed here.

      Delete
    5. I will schedule a post linking to the erroneous post, which I will leave up. I might even edit the piece...might.

      Delete
    6. Finally, I've read all the amazing pieces. Pleased to be amongst such talent.

      Delete
  7. Ooh, funny, I have a card game scene from one of my wips that's not exactly strip poker... They're playing a Swiss game called Jass, and they're using betting slips with bits of clothing written on them, to be cashed later. She wins :-)
    But that's not the scene I'm going to post...

  8. I'm back again for my second WEP! I came up with something a bit different, but it was fun to write. I will polish it up and post on Wednesday.

  9. This challenge got the best of me. You could say I called it in, but I had to post something. I had three stories and couldn't make any of them what I really wanted. Muse has failed me for this, but the WIP is coming along great. Go figure...
    I am thrilled to see so many participants!

  12. I can't get into Shannon Lawrence's link. It tells me it is invalid. Is anyone else having more success than me?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Sue. That was a permalink which Shannon had scheduled for later. I removed the DL when I realised but another lovely team member re added it. I see you’ve commented now.

      Delete
    2. I stalked her and followed her home through her comments on other posts.

      Delete
    3. Clever you. The story was worth all the stalking for sure.

  13. Late posting here. Apologies and please post DL. Left message in the sidebar box too. Problems this a. m. Thanks.

  14. I'm going to apologise in advance if I struggle to visit everybody - life is tough at the moment - depressive at times.

    1. Hi Roland. How lovely of you to tell us. We don't expect you to visit everybody, but of course we love it when people do. But we understand life pressures.

    2. I'm going to read some more, but my hands are struggling to type properly so my comments may..................

  15. I'm sorry to say I had to delete 4 no shows - Anna, Corinne, Helen and Dixie. Unsure whether they intended to post, but well past the post date/time now. It's now Friday 17th.

  16. i enjoyed my visit her as it is great t know people who are creative and share their ideas and feeling through their creative imagination

  17. What a lot of entries. The start of a great partnership with IWSG.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well, I hope I visited everyone; I really tried to. I had such a good time reading these stories. There's always something that blows my mind, makes me laugh, has me on edge, makes me cry, and gets me mad. Everytime I miss the WEP challenge, I always regret it. I have never regretted entering the challenge or following all the stories. So glad WEP and IWSG have partnered.

    1. Thanks for reading around Toi. It means a lot to us. We miss you when you don’t post. Let’s hope you come back each time.

  19. Is this the place to ask? I'm going to post about a drama-documentary I made with my ex in about 1990 - called Change of Heart - about ways of reducing youth crime. The film involved young offenders in the cast & crew. Would anyone be interested if I posted a link here?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Probably no one would read it here in the comments now, Roland, but we could add it to the next WEP post when we announce the winners. Send the link to my email.
      You can post it here if you want to as well...

      Delete
    2. Okay, Denise. I'll do that - when I write it. (Finger fatigue.)

      Delete
  20. oh, I got the post date wrong. My bad. I guess I'll just read then. I'm sure I'm too late for that also though. Dang.

    1. Never too late to read, Donna, but yes, a bit late to post...Is the MailChimp email working for you? I've been sending out emails each time there is something to be done WEP wise. I thought it might have been because of your breakdown etc that you didn't make it...x

I'd love to hear what you have to say. Please stop and say hi!
