#SSC 13/ June 4 – 10th


For THREE more weeks, the challenge you love is back.


It starts with a prompt every Sunday. The responses need only be short and sweet. Or short and scary. Or, short and funny. The point is, the challenge will always require short replies on purpose . . . so YOU have no excuses.

Last week we received a RECORD number of submissions, with almost forty entries to the challenge. Keep those replies coming! You are what makes the Sunday Scribble Challenge so much fun.

*PLEASE NOTE: The primary focus of the #SSC is to help authors forge connections within the writing community. So, if you decide to respond to this week’s prompt, just remember to comment (reply) to at least three other entries before voting opens on Saturday, June 10th.

The prize?

All challenge winners are invited to write a GUEST POST on Scribbles on Cocktail Napkins with LINKS to their own work.

Guest blogs are a FANTASTIC way for writers and bloggers to reach a previously untapped audience.

Not sure how to tackle YOUR guest post? Stay tuned to DanAlatorre.com this Friday, where I’ll be posting an article about the Whys and Hows of . . . you guessed it. Guest blogging.

Speaking of WINNERS, it’s time to announce the winner of the 11th Sunday Scribble Challenge, all about PHOBIAS. Congratulations, Allie Potts! The votes have been tallied and you WON with this great entry:.khvlhvAn email has been sent with your guest blog invitation. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

And Now for this week’s CHALLENGE:quotescover-JPG-30.jpg

Someone has buried your character alive. After a few hours, the victim hears what sounds like digging in the dirt. Soon, he or she realizes the sound is coming from BENEATH them.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write the next line of dialogue, whether it comes from the victim or their guest.


  1. Participants have until Saturday, June 10th at noon, Eastern standard time to post ONE response to the prompt in the comment section of THIS POST.
  2. ENCOURAGE other scribblers. Try to comment (reply) to at least three other submissions during the week.
  3. After the Saturday deadline, players have a week to VOTE for their favorite submission by emailing: Sundayscribblechallenge@gmail.com. Place the lucky author’s name in the HEADER of your email.
