Default Rokia's second CHALLENGE

(not to be confused with competitions... challenges have no reward).

I want you to write a story that has the following name:

Frank's (or Joe's!) Terrible, Awful, No Good, Very Bad Day.

Heck you could just call it the Hardy Boys Terrible, Awful, No Good, Very Bad Day if you want.

It can be any length you want.

It can be fluffy. It can be serious. Take it where you want.

No deadline! Just something hopefully fun for you to write .

LOL! I must admit, this has some intriguing aspects!

LOL! Maybe something short and (not so) sweet will help me get past the writer's block(s) I seem to keep running into with my longer stories... I'll consider this and let you know...

Default Re: Rokia's second CHALLENGE

I have written something for this but the boys are younger. I'm working on a second part where they are older teens like the books. With snow and cold weather in the forecast I may have some time to write that second part.
