Welcome to my weekly writing prompt series. The rules of the challenge are simple. I’ve provided two options below, and 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. Here is the hashtag, should you wish to use it – #MelsWritingMenagerie.
Before I get to the prompts, I’d like to share with you an entry from last week by R. Todd. To read the full, original post, click on the title.
He paced the antechamber; tormented by the echoes of all who had come before him. Echoes of voices that warned him to get out, and get out now. His brow furrowed as he paced, rubbing his hands together, knowing that he should listen to the voices, but knowing full well, if it weren’t him that stopped this evil, then who would. No, resolution was not his strong point, but her had to make the stand. For them.
The sad part is, a lot of people would have thought of his gift as something special. After all, it’s not everyone that can hear the dead, what mysteries they held, what secrets they could reveal. Yes, many would think that he was lucky. Many would be wrong.
All entries are shared over at Featured Fiction.
So, on to the next set of prompts. Grab the badge and write a post based on either of the following options:
Option 1: Sentence Starter –
“Put your hands right there, and don’t move them until I tell you to.”
The sentence (dialogue) 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
If you could turn your favourite film into a television series, write the pilot episode or a story based on the pilot.
Thanks for stopping by.
