New prompts

PhotobucketSome prompts for you. I encourage you to respond to these in the comments, your own journal (please link back!), or the privacy of your own imagination.

  1. "She's not a vampire, or a wolfperson, she's a _____"
  2. Print out one of your stories that didn't work. Cut it up into strips. Rearrange until it's something you can work with.
  3. See this proverb. Write something in which the events build upon one another and one small slip can/does cause the whole thing to tumble.
  4. At your next party of writers, play Exquisite Corpse. For stories, each player can write a line or paragraph; for novels, each player can write a chapter. 
  5. "Children rule the world these days."
  6. All that stands between us and total devastation is an old man and three paperclips.
  7. "Is that a bleedin' rainbow comin' out of your shoe?"
  8. "Scarlett O'Hara never had to deal with this."
