Use these prompts any way you want. You don’t have to quote them verbatim. They don’t have to end up in the finished story. Or you could decide to start/end your story with these quotes exactly as they are.
The key is to allow them to spark your creativity; to help you get over the ‘blank page syndrome’; to get you started.
I’m only supplying you with five prompts. No lessons. No Tips. No 6th and 7th prompt for each week. You can write fewer or more stories, depending on the rules you have set for yourself. I recommend aiming for shorter stories, or an outline of a longer story, since time is limited.
(Me? I’m writing a 100 word story each week day.)
The Prompts for Week 1
- “When I was born…”
- The problem with going through life one day at a time, each in order…
- She could hear the seagulls crying. Or were they laughing?
- The sunsets were dazzling…
- It was the smell that caught my attention first.
When you’re finished each day, why not leave a comment here or post in the Victory Dance group in the online community.
And remember, any writing you do this month is a victory. Aim to write more than you would in a normal month, and you’ll be ahead of 99% of other writers.[*. Statistics are not real statistics…]
