Wednesday Writing Challenge: A Gift From a Stranger

Welcome to the Wednesday Writing Challenge!

Every Wednesday, I pose a new writing challenge here on the blog. These challenges come from books on writing, classes I've taken on creative writing, or sometimes just from my own imagination. If you're an author, hopefully they will help you get your writing juices flowing and help you improve your craft.


Some of these challenges may be very good ones or may include an element I consider highly important for writers to occasionally I may cycle through some of my favorites more than once. 


??  Want to Participate  ??

The Wednesday Challenges are open to all readers. In order to participate, simply comment on the challenge post with your response to the exercise. Not only is it good practice, but you could win something nifty and fun!

 And now...

***Here's Today's Challenge!***

Something intriguing:

Write a sexy scene.

  A stranger from Egypt sends you a box containing an ancient artifact etched with heiroglyphics.

What happens next?

In 5-8 sentences, describe how this turn of events leads to something romantic.



Hints and Tips:


If you choose to make this an erotic scene, remember that "erotic" doesn't necessarily include sex, or even two people.

Consider the different avenues you have before you. Is the rock magic? Is it simply fascinating? Are the hieroglyphics particularly suggestive? Is this just the perfect gift to give your loved one for their birthday?

Give me your best, darlings!!

  1. Ann opened the letter that came with the box and a letter and piece of paper slipped out. The letter was from Dave, Ann’s boyfriend, and asked her to meet him at 8 PM tonight for a date. The location of the date was hidden in hieroglyphics on the box. On the paper was the code to decipher the hieroglyphics. Matching-up the symbols from the paper to the box revealed the location to where Ann and Dave had their first date. Deciding to surprise Dave, Ann arrived at their secret destination with an outfit on that would have made Cleopatra envious.
