Jun 25 - Jul 1 New Prompt! New Poll!

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 5, 2013, 2:34 AM




Thank you to all who participated in the prompt "My Silent Companion." Voting will be open for one week!

Would you like to suggest some prompts? Let us know! I am trolling (like fishing, not being a jerk) the internet daily for prompts now because my brain is out of juice. If you've got some notion running helter-skelter through your noggin or something you strongly feel would help writers then shout it out, it might just be our next prompt.

Current Prompt


Jun 25 - Jul 1

Practice Restraint

Write a scene for a story with two characters. One character has kept a secret from the other, and the other has recently discovered it, but not yet revealed their discovery. Have the characters engaged in an activity—shoveling out from a snowstorm, preparing for a party, looking for a lost ring. Use the dialogue and the action to express the tension between the two, without having them directly discuss the secret.
Thank you to "Poets & Writers" for supplying this prompt!

The eyes see the news, the echos fret in the mind,

Where do we go if not here or the other?

Stupid! Stupid! Stupid religious people!
Don't begin unless the fiery monster tells you to since the lord you deemed so

Can I make it a person that is silent/treated as an inanimate object or does it have to be an inanimate object?

Well at least it's not a 'write without using the letter e' prompt! :faint: That has been a NaPoWriMo challenge which was... really challenging. Yes. Because apparently e is the most used letter in the English language. I might give this a try, when my muse decides to give me a wink here. :plotting:

I know this is ridiculous, but I feel so exceptional for being the one. XD

Nevertheless this prompt sounds like fun and I possess one story in mind. ^_^
