Well, here it is at last! The final story! It’s hard to believe the month’s gone (and given way to the next one) already! Thanks for the amazing prompts, everyone!
An interesting prompt to end the month, even if I’m a day late!
This turned into somethign sappy: https://storiesin5minutes.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/flowers-for-a-lover-storyaday-post/
I’ve written every day…revising and sharing, not so much.
I adapted this prompt to fit my fan fiction universe….and it didn’t exactly come with a happy ending, I’m afraid….
Still, I think it has its own beauty – and now I can’t wait for May, when I’ve decided to do something completely different!
Till then, here’s All These Thorns…
The last one! I managed to write 25 of the 30 days. I’m calling it good!
Well done, I liked your story of Jeff and his blue rose. The last line left me wondering.
This was such an unusual prompt, and I wasn’t sure where to go with it until I thought back to the A.Word.A.Day (https://wordsmith.org/awad) words from a week or so ago, and I just tried to use the narration to take us on a circular adventure. You can read my story here: https://storiesbystolle.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/day-30-diction-dictums. The password is 30.
Here is my last story attempt for the month. I have really enjoyed it this month 🙂 So, anyway, https://angietrafford.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/story-a-day-red-roses/ Enjoy!
Ha ha! Love it.
You’re kind of twisted, aren’t you? 😉
I had to change the prompt a little to work for me. I can’t believe this is the last day!
I know! It’s so sad.
Still, come back tomorrow and pledge your goals for next month’s writing to the Serious Writers’ Accountability Group (SWAGr)
Thanks for playing!!
