Challenge

Synopsis Rewrite

For this challenge, all you have to do is rewrite the synopsis of a book from another character's point of view. Make it their story instead. If you post on social media, be sure to use #synopsisrewritebob20 to share.

Example: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

There are all kinds of courage

When Hermione Granger got her letter from Hogwarts, her whole world changed. She’s sure it will be the experience of a lifetime and she’s determined to make the most of it. All she has to do is study hard, learn everything she can, and absolutely stay out of trouble.

Two out of three aren’t bad, right?

When her new friends uncover a plot to unleash a terrible evil on the world, Hermione will have to marshall all her wits and know-how to stop it in its tracks. After all, what’s the point in being the smartest girl at school if you can’t use it to save your new-found friends?


Thank you to Gräfin Schlotterstein for providing today's challenge idea.

  1. Simon vs the HomoSapien's Agenda:

    For four months now, Martin has had a crush on the new girl. So far he hasn't gotten her to notice him and he's too awkward to approach her. Until, today. Today he found some dirt on her best friend, Simon Speir. Maybe he could keep Simon's secret in exchange for a wingman. Time for blackmail.

  3. That is a really great challenge idea.

    Are the challenges just for fun or are they part of the giveaway or part of something else? Should they be posted here as comments or...? I tried to re-read posts to learn more and I'm probably really overthinking it, haha, but I'm just curious about the challenges.

  4. This is the coolest challenge ever! Here's my link of my progress. Basically, I fell asleep listening to the eAudio Book so have to start over tonight. That's cool because the performer has a great English accent. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10209682364871758&id=1108855616
