Yesterday I was at a friend's birthday 'do' and was talking to someone who came out with the words "One week in October". I said "that would make an excellent title for a book or a film" which sparked off an idea. The idea being that a number of people would each write about "One week in October" from their own perspective. This could be fact or fiction. The pieces/chapters would then be worked together to form a book.
This may sound crazy and may not work but why don't we all give it a try?
I therefore challenge you to write your 'chapter' entitled "One Week in October". Go on humour me!!!!!
For consistency please write your piece in *first person narrative. The chapter should be written in the past tense. As this will obviously span a whole seven days I guess you will need to write a minimum of 500 words but as long as you need it to be. I'll leave that entirely up to you. The week should start on a Monday. Try not to be date specific.
They do say that everyone has a book to write but it's a hard singular task. If we get sufficient interest in this 'project' we could then possibly go onto self-publish. All joint authors will be accredited with the work and reserve copyright. Please leave a comment below if you're interested in taking part.
I'm still thinking on my feet right now but really looking forward to seeing the different approaches/accounts.
(*First-person narrative is a narrative mode where a story is narrated by one character at a time, speaking for and about themselves)
