It’s that time again

Time to kick off another great week here at the yeah write weekly writing challenge! We’re taking it easy for the holidays, but that doesn’t mean we’re slacking off completely. All three of our challenges are open for business, and we are looking forward to seeing what’s on your mind just before the New Year.

“Taking it easy” means that all three grids are unmoderated this week. You must still meet the basic submission guidelines for word count (600 words or fewer for nonfiction and fiction|poetry, exactly 42 words for microstories), and your microstories must answer the ultimate question. No commercial or sponsored posts, please.

The moonshine weekend writing showcase is open until 6:00 PM EST on Sunday. It’s a great place to let loose and try something new or to post an old favorite you’re dying to share with a new audience.

Need a little extra something to motivate you? Pull up a stool in the yeah write coffeehouse — the hippest place on the ‘net to find a writing partner, talk about writing or just hang out with other yeah writers. Head barista Nate serves up a couple shots of espresso every week, specially formulated to get your creative juices flowing. Grab a chair and start chatting up your neighbors![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

This week’s ultimate question: what time is it?

Answer this question in exactly 42 words for the gargleblaster micro challenge, or use it to inspire your submission to the other competitive grids.

Tips for your microstories

This week’s question is pretty straightforward. You can answer it directly (“It’s dinnertime.” “It’s time for Jeopardy.” “It’s 5:00 somewhere.”) or more abstractly (“It’s time to go.” “It’s time for a change.”) — just make sure you answer it. As usual, note the tense of the question.  We want to know what time it is right now.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

Winners’ round-up

In case you missed them, you can find the yeah write #193 staff picks and crowd favorites all laid out for you on Friday’s winners’ post. Leave the winners some love in the comments. They will love you right back, we guarantee it.

The weekend’s not over: the moonshine grid is still open. Have something to add? Old posts and new are welcome. No moderation, no voting. It’s a laid-back relaxed kind of place. Drop by, share your work, and while you’re there, visit your fellow yeah writers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

How yeah write works

We’ve got three competitive challenge grids at the yeah write weekly writing challenge — nonfiction, fiction|poetry and microstories. Most weeks, they are all moderated. Submissions which do not meet our editorial guidelines will not be passed through to the voting grid.

However, this week all three grids are unmoderated! This means all submissions will be eligible for voting.

You’ll find the schedule, submissions guidelines, etc. in our FAQ.
