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,

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:

Not this time around. If someone crafted a poem that fit the intent and criteria of the prompt I would be pretty impressed though.

I've been annoyingly busy with school work and of such, currently the month of examinations for us in the UK. If I am able to steal away a few wisps of time I may try and give this current prompt a go.

We'll just have to see what the future will bring, I suppose.

No, you did it right (and quite well). Sadly, I cannot inject enthusiasm for writing into our fellow members. :no:

We usually get about three entries. (I know out of 3000 people that sounds a bit ridiculous right?)

Seriously? I would think it would be flooded. This is such a well-maintained group, and the prompt is awesome. Why join a writing group if not to write? Well, I'll definitely answer prompts from now on. Thanks!

Awww crud. I already have an entirely worked out religion with all the gritty details and flaws complete with a history of priests and followers and nations.

And y'know what? It's already posted.

Buuuut I guess if I can do it once I can do it again.

Is it okay if we add to the sentences? For example, if I use "He was a fool to think the dinosaur was real, but..." and add more, but don't change the first part? Or is that not allowed?

Yes ma'am. Considering the daily poetry prompts that we are running for NaPoWriMo I thought the weekly prompt should be for the prose writers.
