From the archive: Writing Challenge 2010

StarBase 118 Staff

Recommended Posts

Our community Writing Challenge ran from 2003 to 2014 and provided players with writing prompts six times a year. Prompts could be anything from “a character’s sacrifice” to “where do you see the universe in 10 years.” Over the course of 11 years, an anthology of creative writing was produced.

While the challenge ended in 2014 after a long and successful run, there’s lots to read and remember from this archive. In this column, we’ll be looking back at some of the highlights. This month’s edition includes two entries from Jul/Aug 2010. The challenge was simple: “Universal Rights” Let’s take a look at some of the stories that were produced!

Righting the Past” by Tal Tel-ar
This story is broken down into two parts, the first establishing the setting before thrusting the reader into the heart of the action. The second part is less action orientated, instead an excellently written game of cat and mouse between the characters. It can be difficult to strike a balance between character building, action and pushing the story forward, but here the writer has managed to strike a balance, creating a tale with lasting appeal.

The Man Called AN” by Kevin Breeman
An incredibly well written piece that leaves the reader wanting to know more. The Man Called AN is a magical and touching tale of a boy learning math. Although light on Star Trek references, the writer still manages to make you feel a part of the universe, albeit in a more magical and fantastical setting. By the end you are left with a sense of wonder and intrigue. Where were they? Who was Kevin and most importantly, who was AN?
