Hi, folks! Can you believe that another year is all but gone and the New Year is just around the corner? We all love a New Beginning. Therefore, our final challenge for the year is Utopian Dreams which encapsulates something new.

We all have dreams, the fleeting kind when we close our eyes that sometimes end up being nightmares, depending on what we've had for dinner that night or what we watched on the television that evening. For me, zombies, at times just the mention of them, are enough for a visit during the midnight hour. However, we're not talking about fleeting visions in the night.

The Utopian Dreams Challenge is all about that secret desire, something you spend valuable time daydreaming about, even talking about, and secretly planning for, i.e. that vacation, dream job, or a move across country or to a new country that you've built up in your mind to be idealistic, perfect, – Utopian.                                   
When we create the idyllic dream, we seldom see the what-if's, the downside, the unknown. Reality is rarely ideal. 

This is our challenge for you this December. This is your imagination at work. Your Utopian Dream could be just that, perfection, or it could end up with all the horrors life can throw at a person. The dream can be real or unreal as in fantasy, sci-fi, or speculative fiction. Have your dreams come true or become the nightmare no one saw coming? 

Just google Utopian Dreams, and the pictures that appear are varied, beautiful, frightening, wonderful, and truly inspiring! Try it! Just click HERE!

It's up to you! Create an artistic interpretation: a poem, a flash fiction piece of 1000 words or less, a non-fiction piece detailing your personal experience or someone else's experience, write a script, draw your dreams, or post a photograph or a photo essay. The genre is up to you. The artistic choice is yours. A dream turned nightmare or true Utopia.

Email Denise or Yolanda if you have more questions: /

Please note that our December Challenge and maybe future challenges have been cut down from three (3) days to just the one (1).

Sign-up begins December 1st, but posting day is just that one Wednesday, December 21st! If you need to post earlier due to holiday commitments, go right ahead! We'll pick it up on the feed...

  1. Hmmm.
    I am dreamless I think. Muddling along is what I do.
    Thinking, thinking, thinking...

  2. OK, I'm ready, but nervous. My entry will be one of my Memoir stories, very near and dear to my heart, but still a little hard to tell. I'll wait until the 21st to post it, though because I'm extremely nervous about it. I hope it fits the Challenge, for me personally it IS a Utopian Dream.

  3. I have a story, hooray! A strange story too, almost complete fiction, although it might yet come true. The only thing I need to do is write it.

  4. I have to say this is scary because my dreams are usually signposts that something is going to change in my life. They are so important to me that I write them down in my journal.
    Shalom aleichem,

  5. Yay. From having no idea, I've just edited a fiction to suit. Phew!

  6. oosh, thanks, will do my best!

  7. Signed up. Tweeted. Spending a 1000-word day in Utopia sounds pretty good right now! :O)

  8. All done at my sea, not that I really have a Utopia but I can fake it. haha

  9. I've been working on something for the Utopian Dream challenge but forgot about the signup. Now I'm in.

  10. Mine's up. And terribly un-Christmassy. :) Sorry!..see you all later.

    1. Hi, Nila, got it! Thanks, and don't worry, mine isn't Christmassy either. You have to go where the prompt takes you. :)
      Thanks for participating, I'm looking forward to reading all the entries this week!

  11. Heh, heh, Nila and Yolanda. Nothing Christmassy about mine, either. It's up now. I'm looking forward to doing the rounds as they come up!

  12. A bit late, but finally I've posted my WEP entry. You can find it here:

    Quiet Laughter

    Unlike other WEPs, my offering for this one is (mostly) artwork... Though I couldn't help but comment a bit :) I'll be back later in the day to visit everyone's—looking forward to it!

  13. DL =
    Sorry I'm dragging in late too. But DG is here. Please update my link, ladies.

  14. oooosh, so sorry, the days have gone by in a blur. My apologies for saying I would put up an entry and I didn't. I'm really sorry ...

    1. Thanks for letting us know, Susan. We know. Been there! Happy Christmas!

  15. Thank you so much, Denise and Yolanda. You have made my day!
    Shalom aleichem,
    Pat Garcia
