I’m in a prompt kind of mood (or at least I was when I wrote this post, before I left for France) because later on this fall I’ll be coming out, with a wonderful co-author, with a writing prompt journal that you will be able to hold in your very own hands! Exciting, no? But in the meantime, because its Monday and you need to write this week, here’s a week’s worth of prompts for you. Go to it.
–He never knew that his aunt had turned into a hoarder, but now he edged along a narrow path that skirted the huge pile of junk in the living room.
–It will all be over soon.
–I don’t like you, but I love you. Seems like I’m always thinking of you. (With thanks to the Beatles.)
–The pile of notebooks threatened to topple over at any second.
–But, after all….
–You main character’s favorite way to spend her free time. Drinking wine, pursuing a hobby, watching TV, having sex, hiking, reading, what?
–My neighbors collect gnomes and have them all around their yard. Sometimes they find new ones that friends have left in odd places. What do you collect and why? How about your main character?
Okay, you’ve got your marching orders for the week. Go to it! And if you write something you want to share, put it in the comments!
