Please note that I have changed the blogging format for the challenge.
It is now all in an easy to find “One-stop shopping” Update.
Part 1 of this blog will present the upcoming monthly theme, banner links and challenge specifics for the month.
Part 2 will contain links to the previous month’s submissions and a link to vote in each category (veteran or novice). After the vote closes an update to this blog post will be made to announce the winners in each category.

Part one – New Theme:
To celebrate the new year and the new decade I am wanting to do a NEW thing.
How about a little exercise in cooperative creativity?
A writing collab of sorts, if you will.
A new story for all of us that will cross blog-lines and will grow us past the comfort of our well worn creative paths.
First, this month, create a character.
A brand new one.
Any kind you want but try to push past your comfort zone.
Stretch a bit outside of your norm BUT please outside of your established stories.
In your story, introduce us to your character and their backstory.
Using 1st or 3rd person, tell us what we need to know about them.
Brainstorm it out with ideas like (but not limited to) …
What are their strengths or weaknesses
Are they a classic archetype
What is their greatest desire
Where do they live
Where do they work
Where do they come from
or where ever you want your backstory to go.
I cannot wait to meet them!
