Well, it’s Wednesday and I still have not come up with a hip name for my Writing Prompt Wednesday, so guess what we are going to call it. That’s right! Writing Prompt Wednesday.
Here’s how it’s going to work. Each Wednesday throughout the summer, I will post some sort of writing prompt on this blog. It might be a picture, a word or phrase, or a bit of dialogue. It could even be a feeling or a smell.
Anyone who wishes to play along may write a scene or an entire story using the prompt. You can keep these stories to yourself if you like, using this as an exercise for your writing brain, or you may share with us in the comments below. Occasionally I will share my scene or story as well.
If you choose to share your story in the comments, please keep it clean. I started this series by request of a student, and would like to keep it where people of all ages and backgrounds can participate.
There are no winners and losers here, no prizes or fame to be had. My intent is for everyone who participates to have fun and be encouraged.
Here is the writing prompt for this week.
You open the door to your backyard and see this. How did it get there? Where did it come from? What are you going to do about it? (These are just some questions to get you thinking...answer one, all or none.) Have fun.
