2018 Read and Write Challenge for Book Bloggers

Welcome to the 2018 Read and Write Challenge!

2018 Read and Write Challenge hosted by BTH Reviews

Do you like to write fiction? Are you creative?

If so, please join the Read and Write Challenge.

I’m excited about this; I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. I’ve done something similar on my own, but I’m interested to see what other people can come up with.

All you have to do is: read a book, then take the first sentence of a book and write a following sentence that takes the story into a new direction. The reason you need to read the book first is so you will know if your idea is different enough from the author’s.

Of course, you wouldn’t be able to publish the author’s first line if it develops into an actual idea for a story, but it’s a good way to get your writing gears going.

Even if you don’t think you are a good writer, you can still join in this challenge. No one is going to critique your writing. You don’t even have to post what you wrote verbatim unless you want to. Just add at the end of your review a comment that tells everyone what your idea was.

Not only will you be getting books read, you will be utilizing your creativity and skills. Practice makes perfect, right?

I encourage everyone who participates to visit other people’s reviews to see what they came up with. At least once a week, I will visit everyone’s blogs.

Post somewhere on your blog that you will be participating in this challenge, then link up in the widget on this page.

At the end of the year, I’ll have a giveaway for everyone who participated. The prize will be an ebook up to $10.

Each time you post a review with a Read and Write comment, you can submit your link to the Rafflecopter below.

  3. I dropped the ball on this challenge because I had some serious family issues. So sorry! Once I get back in the swing of writing reviews, I’ll make sure to include this in my next review.
