A while back, the theme for Teitho was On
Location, challenging authors to write a story that takes place
in one single location. During the upcoming month though, we will not
focus on the setting but on the timeframe of the story. The theme for
July is Twenty-Four.
You probably all know the tv show 24 where Special Agent Jack
Bauer saves his own neck, the USA and the world in general in real time.
Every season has 24 episodes, which in the end translate into one full
day in Jack Bauer's life.
The July Challenge will focus on this timeframe. We want you to write
a story that covers 24 hours in some way. Aragorn and Legolas do not
necessarily have to save their necks, their countries or the world in
general during that time (they are doing that on a daily basis anyway,
so there is no reason to make that a challenge *g*), but we challenge
you to write a story in which twenty-four hours in the life of a character
play a significant role.
Write the last twenty-four hours Legolas spends in Middle Earth before
sailing to the Undying Lands with Gimli. Write the first twenty-four
hours Arwen and Aragorn spend with their firstborn son. Write twenty-four
hours of a battle. Write an account of twenty-four hours spent in a
rangers' camp. Write anything you like - as long as you can fit it into
Here are the stories for this challenge:
