So, even though no one seems to participate in these things anymore, I thought I'd try once more. If no one writes anything than I'm putting this baby to bed. At least I am, of course anyone is welcome to come up with challenges of their own.

I purposely am picking a genre that most of you have written in before (comfortably) and it's close to February. So, why not?

Here is the challenge:

Create a romance but it needs to have a twist and this twist is a mixing of another genre of your choosing. It could be romance/suspense

romance/comedy, romance/fantasy, romance/slash etc...

~ There is no word limit but it shouldn't exceed 5 chapters in length
~ Doesn't have to be BSB it could be any fandom
~ I'll even let you make a stupid banner if you want.

Your novelette/short story should be completed by Valentine's Day!

Make sure you mention somewhere in your summary that it is for this challenge and then post the link in this thread!

Happy writing! Smiley

Glad to hear it! Although for me, that would be any banner lol

Make sure you include a random female celebrity or two! Or even better, a big old picture of yourself!

 Cheesy  That was the best part.

I'm trying to get settled/finished moving and back in to writing again.  It may also be easier to find time writing now that I'll have no cable/internet (no distractions!).  lol

Sadly, I won't have anything up until your midnight.
Still trying to finish the story and then I would have to translate it so it's basically impossible. lol
