Write a story that begins and ends with someone looking up at the stars.
Today's prompt: Pick a really memorable person from your childhood. Describe them. Avoid adverbs.
Today's prompt: "Pretend you're a recovering alcoholic who falls off the wagon at a high school reunion. Start your story with 'I hadn't had a drink in nearly ten years' and end it with 'If only I could remember where I left my pants.' I kind of wrote, not really knowing where it was going. So, with that in mind, enjoy!
Today’s prompt: Write about a character that always says, “I don’t want to bother you, but…”
Today's prompt: Write about your antagonist as a baby. Describe him through his mother’s eyes. This may not make much sense, since you don't know really anything about my current manuscript, but I thought it'd be a good exercise anyway. I hope you enjoy it 🙂
Today's prompt: Write a story with a countdown, starting at ten and ending at zero. Well, I tried that. And then I played around with it. And this is the result. I like the idea of time progressing, but you as a reader can decide if it's been years or months or weeks or days. I just wanted to explore the way relationships can change. In the simplest way.
Today’s prompt: "Hatred is the absence of love." Again, I just let the words flow, and I think I like it. Please do let me know what you think.
Today’s prompt: “Write the saddest scene you can think of between a boy and a girl. Except this is the first time they’ve met.” It took me a while to decide what I thought was the saddest scene, but I'm happy with the end result. Please let me know what you think.
Today’s prompt: "My wife woke me up last night to tell me there was an intruder in our house. She was murdered by an intruder two years ago." I started writing, and it went somewhere different than I was expecting, but I think I like it. Anyway, please do let me know what you think.
Today’s prompt: "Use these five words in a mystery story - Power. Devil. Clutter. Blonde. Poet." I just let the words flow with this one. It's a bit weird, I'll be honest. But please do let me know what you think.
