A couple of weeks ago, I posted about winning the WikiRandom Challenge. It was a big moment for me, as it kick-started my writing on a regular basis. I shared the victory with Ellen Gregory,who became responsible for hosting the next challenge. The Wikirandom Challenge, started by Laird Sapir in January, involves writing a 3-sentence piece of fiction incorporating a phrase picked out after hitting Wikipedia’s ‘random article’ button.
And the random phrase is: Wooden wings.
You must post your entry at Ellen’s blog by the end of the day Friday. I am sharpening my pencil.
UPDATE: I have posted my entry.
