What is the Challenge?
Okay, so this challenge was inspired by Melia’s Ficlet, Mmmmmm… (6 m’s? yeah), hence I’m prequeling it with this challenge, making hers the first entry. Enough commas on that last sentence?
Anyway, the gist of the challenge is this. Describe an object or event in as much detail as you can, without referring to it by name at all (or if you must, reveal in the last line, as Melia did). The fun thing of it is having your readers guess what it was you were describing. You may be surprised to find they weren’t thinking of what you were thinking of!
Along with being an exercise in creativity, this will exercise your descriptive ability.
