When thinking of the short list of well-known science fiction writers of our time, when thinking about some of the most prolific writers of our time, Ray Bradbury's name is bound to come up. I saw a presentation he did in 2001 in this YouTube video and he presented an exciting challenge to writers.
Write 52 short stories in 52 weeks.
Wow! At first, it boggles the mind. But Ray gives so many examples of topics you could write about that soon you begin to believe you might be able to do it.
Last week, I suggested four ways you might choose which story to write next. This week, I suggest taking Ray Bradbury's writing challenge to generate more ideas – and more creative ideas – for you to choose from. The ideas might be all fiction, or all nonfiction, or all poetry, or any combination of whatever you feel like writing.
Try making this challenge work for you and see what happens!
