So a couple of the days ago, a friend of mine in Australia dared me to write 2 Christmas stories before the 25th. Not a couple hours later did another friend of mine dare me to write one for a specific fandom. Since its me and I don't know how to say no to a challenge, of course I agreed to do all 3 of them. Not only do I have to have them written by the due date but I also need them edit'd beta'd and posted on that day as well, I have my work cut out for me I think.
I'm having a really big problem of getting started on them, since I don't normally write stories for this season, it proves to be an even bigger challenge. I'm sure I'll figure something out, worse comes to worse I'll be writing song fics which I really don't want to do.
Have you ever been challenged to write something? Was it something that you normally write or was it something that you normally would never touch?
