Maughanster_ posts writing prompts on a monthly basis, where learners are invited to write a story based on said prompt, and have it corrected by a native.

This month, I've signed up to correct any entries in Norwegian, and would be happy to see you all participate.


February's writing prompt is "time travel", so your story must involve that concept in one way or another. There's no minimum length; a few sentences is perfectly fine if you find anything longer to be a bit daunting. I'm sure a poem would be welcome too, if that's more your cup of tea.

For those who haven't made it to the Fantasy skill yet, it may be pertinent to know that to travel in time is "å reise i tid", and the corresponding noun is "en tidsreise".

Happy writing! :)

NB: All entries should go in Maughanster's original thread, which can be found here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/26122331

I will not be joining the related Discord server, so only stories posted in the above thread will be eligible for corrections by me.

Rules as described in the original post:

  • You must write in a language that is not your native language.
  • Your story must follow the prompt.
  • Your story must follow the Guidelines.
  • Be willing to accept feedback and don't be rude to anyone.
  • No Google Translate!

Ok,I have written one. I stuck very close to the online dictionaries you pointed out (thank you so much!) but part of me knows I chose the wrong words. I’ll include the English translation so you know what I was trying to say, lol.

I've posted a poem.

It's the first time I've tried writing in Norwegian and I have to confess it was an odd mix of English words transalated, images where I had to go looking for Norwegian words to describe them, and lines that just occured to me in Norwegian. It was fun though :)
