  • "'Huh?' The Reaction Shot Challenge" by NancyBrooke

    Started 31 Jul 2012: Ended Mon Aug 13, 2012 11:00 pm

    Give words to the voiceless moment ...

    Participants are encouraged to take a wordless moment - a look, a reaction, a double take, a spit take - and give it thought and voice and form. The original inspiration for this challenge was the moment in the Two Towers film when Aragorn comes into Theoden's tent to find him bent over the hooded Elrond, not saying anything. And then he leaves, and passes by Aragorn, and says nothing? What the heck was he thinking?

    Any short form fiction will do - prose or poetry - but participants are encouraged to challenge themselves to the exacting restrictitude of the drabble.

    Good Luck!
