Mike’s Not-Entirely-Serious Wantonly-Rule-Breaking Adverb Writing Challenge

9 August 2016

Greetings from Bristol,

In the last couple of emails I’ve mentioned the rather fun and not particularly serious Adverb Writing Challenge. I’m pleased to say we have received over 20 stories, so the challenge now has a dedicated page on my website.

I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all the writers that have submitted their stores and supported this rather crazy project. Special mentions go to Mike Scott Thomson, for co-creating the challenge with me, and Allen Ashley, who has spread the word like a madman and encouraged many of the entries.

Because everyone is giving their time for free, Mike and I thought it would be nice if the challenge were to support a charity. So, this is how it will work…

How the Adverb Challenge Works

  • 100 words max
  • Cram your story with as many adverbs as you can
  • Entry is FREE
  • EVERY story is published
  • If we receive over 100 stories, we’ll produce an anthology

If we do get to 100 stories, the anthology will be released in print and eBook formats.

Any profit made from book sales will be donated to First Story, a charity that supports and inspires creativity, literacy and confidence in UK secondary schools where over 50% of the pupils are considered deprived.

So, by writing a short adverb-riddled tale, you will be supporting a very worthy charity and you’ll be published. Everyone wins:-) You can learn far more details and read all the entries on the Adverb Writing Challenge page.
