This challenge has ended!

In honor of this new beginning, and to test out the challenge feature, I propose that we focus on beginnings.

All things have a beginning, a genesis if you like terms. Every story has a beginning too. I hope that you can write a beginning that will inspire you to keep going, but if you don’t, at least you began writing!

Births are a beginning.
Sometimes people change so much, its like they’ve started over, or been re-born as they say.
Perhaps you will write about that.

Or perhaps you will think about the first time you tried something new and it was the beginning of a new hobby, or favorite something.

Any way you look at it, beginnings are exciting, like seeing new life emerge from the cold, dead, winter snow. And I am excited to see what you come up with!

Poetry or prose, enter now ’til June 30th!

    I wrote a ficly that I think would fit this challenge before I know about it- can I enter?
