Ah, yes, better late than never. It is Saturday, albeit nearly time for Happy Hour in my neck of the woods, and here is my latest collection of writing prompts for you. I've not been dallying around, I've been teaching all day–a fine group of local students who showed up despite forecasted temperatures of 102 degrees. The good news is that the temps haven't been quite that high and all the attendees were wonderful. So here are the prompts:
#330 She grabbed the envelope, tore it open and then shrieked in ______________ (delight, horror, sadness, laughter, etc.)
#331 The explosion woke her from a sound sleep.
#332 I once knew someone who ate a candy bar and washed it down with a Coke every afternoon. This ended when he was diagnosed with diabetes. And then there was the friend who I watched eat a whole half a pie one night. He was a recovering alcoholic.
Does your main character have a sweet tooth? How does this manifest in his or her life?
#333 Ocean or mountains? Which does your main character prefer?
#334 Life’s a bitch, and then you die. True, or not true? What does your main character think?
#335 If your main character were to choose one word that would sum him or her up, what would it be?
#336 Choose yourself a council of mentors. They can be dead or alive. Write about why each one of them inspires you. Now do the same for your main character.
