November can sometimes seem a little boring, especially after all the excitement of Halloween. The weather is colder, the days are shorter and there aren’t really any excuses to dress up in costume. But, did you know that November is actually known as National Novel Writing Month? Starting at 12:00AM on November 1st, writers around the world challenge themselves to finish a novel by 11:59PM on November 30th. Sounds pretty daunting, huh?
Woozworld has decided to get in on the fun by asking you, our beloved Woozens, to help us write a story. Don’t worry, you don’t need to submit a whole novel to help out! We want you to submit 3-5 sentences of a story each day, starting today. You’ll have the whole weekend to perfect your sentences! On Monday, we will choose our favourite sentences and they will be added to our story. You can submit your sentences in the red Podz in Central Plaza. Even if your sentences don’t get picked on Monday, your sentences may be picked on Tuesday… Or Wednesday… Or Thursday… Or Friday. So you have to keep submitting!
Each day we will update our story, so remember to check it out so you know what to write about!
The theme of our story will be: DYZTOPIA (or dystopia)
Don’t know what a dystopia is? Don’t worry! Basically, a dystopia is an imagined society in which pretty much everything is unpleasant. Dystopias are usually run by harsh dictatorships and are usually environmentally degraded. Think of The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner or Divergent; these are all excellent examples of dystopias. You can think of these novels as examples, but make sure your sentences are 100% your own!
We can’t wait to get our story started with you!
