You may or may not be aware of this, but I previously ran a writing prompt series at Writing Room 101. The series was in need of a reboot, and as part of its development I made the decision to host it here. It is a weekly prompt, which I will run every Thursday. The title is a work in progress, so love it or hate it, please feel free to leave feedback. Until I settle on a name for this challenge, the badge will have to do!
I’ll keep it simple, and post two options each week. There’s a handy link-up button at the end of the post, so you can upload your contribution and share it with others. If you prefer to use the pingback method, I’ll check out each link I receive.
So, let’s get to it. The rules are simple:
- Grab the badge.
- Write a post based on the prompt.
- Link it to the handy tool provided each week.
All other rules will be included in the weekly post.
Here are the prompts:
Option 1: Sentence Starter – ‘Only a fool would rush in where others fear to tread – it turns out I’m a fool.’
The sentence can be used anywhere in the story. The maximum word count is 1,000 words. The genre can be any of your choosing; either factual or fiction based. You may use art to interpret the sentence, or poetry if you wish.
Option 2: Fanfiction – Take a favourite character from book, film, or television (including animated) and tell a story from their perspective, based on the following:
You are trapped in a room in an unknown location, and the only thing in the room with you is an old piece of paper. The paper holds a terrifying secret. You must escape, using the only tools in your possession (on your person) and ensure the message sees the light of day.
Thanks for stopping by.
