Monday Challenge Oct. 26 09

Challenge for writers:

This time, you get to choose the story genre! Simply start your 500-1,500 word story with one of the following story starters:

1. Her name was Lily, but the villagers only knew her as The Captain…

2. The tile slipped and landed with a crash…

3. It was karaoke night…

Keep it PG please! PG-13 is okay too.

An oxymoron is when two contradictory terms are combined to create meaning. Shakespeare used them quite frequently: “heavy lightness”, “sweet sorrow”, “bright smoke”, “cold fire”, etc. You can choose one of these oxymorons or create one of your own and design an image that represents that oxymoron and is obvious to anyone who stops to look and think about it. (I’m thinking like the popular image of a screw and a baseball…something like that but with oxymorons).

Monday Challenge Results Oct. 5 09

Without further delay, here is the Monday Challenge Result!

Graphic Design Challenge:

The challenge said: “a a poster that represents what Halloween means to you”. Well, I never went trick-or-treating when I was a kid, so I can’t relate to that image of Halloween as a day you dress up and go collect candy around your neighborhood. To me, this holiday is all about pumpkins: pumpkin decorations, pumpkin songs, and of course, Pumpkin Pie!

In keeping with the spirit of the month, you’re writing another Halloween story. This time, I want you to write a 500-1,000 words combining two of my favorite things: the Toy Story movies and Halloween. Feel free to use the characters from the movie or introduce new toys of your own.

Keep it PG please! PG-13 is okay too.
