One thought on “Working with Writing Prompts”

  1. I surprised myself with this one! Going into the assignment, I was reminded of Umberto Ecco’s novel The Name of the Rose. I am far from being a medievalist, but this prompt and the intro have potential. I managed to write a First Draft this morning. Maybe I will have time to think about yesterday’s, the story with a basically happy outlook. I am still stumped by it. These prompts are quite wonderful! The added bonus is that we get introduced to some fine authors. I am off to request Ms. Mohamed’s novels from the library. I can’t buy every book, but at least in Canada she will be eligible for public lending rights, a cheque authors get once a year based on library circulation of their works.
