quill Mini Challenges



What exactly is a mini challenge?

Mini challenges are extra prompts that you may use IN PLACE of any one of the prompts in your list for the SS100 and/or SS50 challenges. These are meant to help stretch your writing skills and provide additional inspiration - don't stress about them! The most important thing is that you have fun! If you're looking for even more ways to challenge yourself outside of the SS25/50/100 and the EEFD, be sure to check out the various games in the Chocolate Frog Corner too!

» about the mini challenges
They do not expire and can be completed any time.

The first post of your thread may NOT be a mini challenge.

You may only use each mini challenge once per SS100/SS50 thread.

You may use up to five mini challenges or ten mini challenges in your SS50 or SS100 thread, respectively.

You do not in any way HAVE to use any of the mini challenges in your thread(s). They are only there to offer you an additional resource for you to use from time to time with your writing.

You do NOT need to post anywhere that you have replaced a prompt. Simply strikeout the prompt from your list and write beside it the title of the mini challenge that you have selected.

Default mini challenge twenty-four - Dementors
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

mini challenge twenty-four
"Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself — soul-less and evil. You’ll be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life."
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


Feeling the heat? Why not cool your writing down with these ice bearing, soul sucking creatures? Whether they are a main component, mentioned in passing, or used as a metaphor, the choice is yours but just be sure dementors are included somewhere in your entry when submitting for this mini challenge.

Oh, and make sure you have your wand at the ready. Hate to have one of them give you a kissy kissy before you finish writing

Default mini challenge twenty-five - luck of the Irish
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

mini challenge twenty-five
"The word luck is Middle Dutch in origin, coming from luc, a shortening of gheluc, 'happiness, good fortune.' "


When one thinks of March, thoughts about St. Patrick's Day, leprechauns, pots of gold, shamrocks, and rainbows come to mind. Finding any of these things would make you one lucky person, yeah? The phrase luck of the Irish is commonly thought to mean “extreme good fortune.” However, according to Edward T. O’Donnell, an Associate Professor of History at Holy Cross College and author of 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About Irish American History, the term has not an Irish origin but “a happier, if not altogether positive,” American one.
"During the gold and silver rush years in the second half of the 19th century, a number of the most famous and successful miners were of Irish and Irish American birth. . . .Over time this association of the Irish with mining fortunes led to the expression 'luck of the Irish.'"

So why not make one of your drabbles especially lucky - or unlucky or the case may be? Whether your character has stumbled upon a four leaf clover, draw from the Unlucky Dip in Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes, or snuggling with their lucky teddy bear, make sure your drabble includes a little bit of luck!

Default mini challenge twenty-six - first person witness
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

mini challenge twenty-six

The story of the main character is told by another character observing the events.


This form of narrative voice is told by an "I," but this "I" is not the main character of the story but a a less important character witnessing events and telling them to the reader. Are your drabbles/ficlets about Harry Potter? Try writing a drabble from Ron Weasley's perspective or even Colin Creevey!

Default mini challenge twenty-seven - healer
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

mini challenge twenty-seven


Harry Potter: "Are they doctors?"

Ron Weasley: "Doctors? Those Muggle
nutters who cut people up? Nah, they're
Healers."


An apple a day keeps the Healer away, or so they say. In honor of the 2014 Days of Potter, we are asking you to tuck the apples away and invite the Healer to step into your drabbles an ficlets! Whether the primary focus or in passing, make sure the Healer stops by to give your writing a bit of a check-up!

Default mini challenge twenty-eight - western zodiac
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf

mini challenge twenty-eight

submitted by nicole black

“We need not feel ashamed of flirting with the zodiac. The zodiac is well worth flirting with.”
—D. H. Lawrence


In western astrology, there are 12 signs but standing for 12 periods of a year. According to natural distribution, stars are divided into many regions of different sizes, each called a constellation. The astrologists divide a year is into 12 periods, during each period the sun being in a constellation area. People believe that different signs of the zodiac present different characteristics and talents. The 12 signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.

So let the stars, the celestial sphere, take the helm of your writing and draw inspiration from one of the 12 signs of the zodiac!

Default mini challenge twenty-nine - muggle magic
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge twenty-nine


Abracadabra! Sim Sala Bim!


In a magical world like the one our challenges take place in, Muggle magic might appear very strange and out of place.
All the more reason for you to incorporate it in your SS50 or SS100 threads.
Simple card tricks, someone pulling a rabbit out of a hat - your choice!

But remember, no real magic allowed!

Default mini challenge thirty - laundry
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge thirty


Merriam Webster defines laundry as:
"clothes or linens that have been or are to be laundered"

Others might describe it as "an annoying nuisance"


Your challenge will be to come to my house and do my laundry have someone in your drabble or ficlet do laundry.
Might be theirs, might be someone else's. They might be good at it or it might be their first time.

Or it might be their hundredth time and they're still not good at it.

Default mini challenge thirty-one - bad pickup lines
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge thirty-one


"Are you a Snitch?
Because you’re by far the greatest catch here."



Surely, most of us have experienced bad pick-up lines one way or the other. Some might have even used one themselves.
Your challenge this month is to incorporate someone using a bad (are there even good ones?) pick up line in your drabble/ficlet.

The reaction they get is completely up to you.

Default mini challenge thirty-two - thoughts of pets
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge thirty-two

A tribute to the Days of Potter 2019.


Is the character you are writing about one of those people who talks to their pets? Are YOU?
And have you ever wondered what the pet you are talking to actually thinks of you? What do their thoughts revolve around?

Food? Play? Pats on the head? Squirrels?

Well, here's your chance to find out. Please write an entire drabble or ficlet from the point of view of a pet.

Default mini challenge thirty-three - quarantine
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge thirty-three


A lot of us are self-isolating or in (home) quarantine right now.
So why not wash your hands and make your character(s) suffer the same fate?

To finish this mini challenge, someone in your drabble has to be in quarantine.
Maybe the character you're writing about is trying to visit someone who's in quarantine.
Or maybe they, themselves, are having to stay inside without any face-to-face contact with other people.

It's up to you.

Now, go on, stay safe and start drabbling!

Default mini challenge thirty-four - inspired by... (Part 2)
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge thirty-four

special thanks to Tegz for inspiring this mini challenge
"When I'm inspired, I get excited because I can't wait to see what I'll come up with next."


We each draw inspiration from different places. Some of us are more inspired by color. Others shape or overall design. Then there are some of us who become inspired based on a feeling or a memory invoked when we look at something. So what is is for you? What inspires you?

For this mini challenge you will be given a picture which your drabble should be inspired from. How it is inspired is entirely up to you! Is it the color? An object with in the image itself? Is your character actually IN the picture somewhere? The possibilities are endless!

SPOILER!!: get inspired


thank you to Daemon for finding this photo____________________________(source)



This challenge is part of a series. Here is Part 1.

Default mini challenge thirty-five - dear diary
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge thirty-five


There are some things you ONLY tell your diary.

Have a secret crush nobody should know about?
Did you do something super embarrassing?


Sometimes writing a diary also ends up going badly; perhaps when somebody finds that diary...or if, say, a Dark Wizard hides his soul inside one
and tries to get you to open the a scary chamber underneath a bathroom which houses a big snake and........

ANYWAY

That hardly ever happens, though. However the diary-writing turns out for your character(s) is completely up to you.
Your challenge is simply to write a diary entry for them, either in drabble or ficlet form.
Have fun!

And no "the weather was nice today", we want to see the juicy stuff.

Default mini challenge thirty-six - living vicariously
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge thirty-six


In the year 2020 most of us haven't been able to do all the things we would have liked to do.
Somehow it was (still is) the year of plans that were never carried out.

Your challenge now is to write a drabble or ficlet of your character(s) doing something YOU would have liked to do in 2020.
Can be something like going to a foreign place or throwing a huge party with lots and lots of people.
Or simply visiting a friend or hanging out with your grandparents the way you would have liked.
There's no limits to your inspiration for this challenge.

It just has to be something you weren't able to do in 2020 but would have liked to do.

This challenge lets you live vicariously through your character(s).

And we all need that sometimes, don't we? Especially if we can't do the thing in real life.

Default mini challenge thirty-seven - pirates
The Kisapaths | Sila!Roti | -2 | TouchableHair | ToiletPaperGuy | QueenOfConfusion

mini challenge thirty-seven


Ahoy, mateys!!
dont hate me

This is a very special challenge, one which has nothing to do with the world right now, or the plot, or any other big real life events.
The theme is simply that...pirates. Whether your character is dressing up as a pirate, actually turns into a pirate...or simply talks about a pirate, anything goes.

As long as it somehow relates to pirates.
