October Writing Prompt

Posted on Updated on

Hi all, it is that time of the month again! Time for me to attempt to help get your writing juices flowing!

First up, images:

Underwater City, Shicheng, China Twins or Lovers freeimage 2

The first is an Underwater City, Shicheng, China (sorry I can’t remember where I got that image). The second is an untitled free image from the Goodfone website.

To go with the images, we have a ‘line’ (yes it is actually a bit of dialogue but hey…):
“Well, excuuuuse me, Princess. Its not like creation comes with a friggin manual or anything!”
“Actually it does.” The priest noted.
“Gimme that. Yes…Yes…Oh hey! Divine Wrath!”

And because I can, a word list:

  • Tiny
  • Blue
  • Dance
  • Freak
  • Laugh
  • Tune
  • Sheet
  • Busy
  • Always
  • Count

As always try for at least 500 words for a decent attempt, but above all have fun!!

Ps – Look at that I managed the whole post without plugging Nano anywhere!

September Writing Prompt

Posted on

So those of you who were at the meeting know that I am feeling particularly brainless today, so please forgive spelling errors… Grammar ones too…

This month’s picture comes courtesy of Judy, the bottom right corner has the photographer 🙂

To go with this we have a challenge, courtesy of David:
Describe your main character/a character in three lines, two good and one bad, or two bad and one good.

 

A couple of lines, because I can:
“Wherever you are, I commend you on your excellent scheming, your magnificent wardrobe choices and most of all your virtually undetectable hiding places, but the spying is getting a little creepy.”
“I’m going to drink until my internal organs start a revolution and leave.”

 

As always 500 words + for a decent attempt and the standard extra challenge of using all of them 😀
But above all Have Fun!

August Writing Prompt

Posted on

Hi again everyone!

So apparently it was a Super Moon this morning and it is currently a full moon so this may be a little moon-themed… Or it may not. I do literally make these up on the spot…

So first to find some pictures that may or may not be moon related:
August (1)

I apparently got this from a site called digitalblasphemy.com. It seems to be called “eventide”.

Foreste Casentinesi National Park, Tuscany side - Italy by Stefano Spezi National Geographic Photo Contest 2013

Foreste Casentinesi National Park, Tuscany side – Italy by Stefano Spezi National Geographic Photo Contest 2013

 

Continuing with the moon theme, what do your people think of the full moon? does it fill their hearts with dread? Excitement? Boredom?

 

And I don’t seem to have done a word list for a while so have one of those too:

  • Bodacious
  • Scalpel
  • Augmentation
  • Precision
  • Silicone
  • Cup
  • Increase
  • Surgeon
  • Delicate
  • Snowflake

 

As always, I hope this sparks some inspiration, have fun!

Usual challenge of trying to get them all into the piece 😀
Until next time!

July Writing Prompt

Posted on

Hello from the craziness that is July-Camp-Nano!
Please forgive any spelling errors, I am trying not to let the inner editor out 🙂

Kotor Bay, Montenegro

Kotor Bay, Montenegro

A line: “There was nothing really noble about questing, when you got right down to it. After all, the only reason they were out here saving the world in the first place was because they didn’t trust anyone else to do it right.”

And finally… Um… Another line because I said so.
“If you say ‘it could always be worse’ I will kill you.”

Have fun!
Lady Talia (who is not technically behind on wordcount, just behind the wordcount she wants.)

June Writing Prompt

Posted on Updated on

Firstly welcome to all of our new members!

Window Bed Snow Lady freeimage

I don’t know where I found the first one but the second is from the goodfone website.

And a line: On my mirror, written in some red, wet substance was the ominous message: “Make Me Pie.”

Finally in honor of our new Science Fiction writers,
What is the coolest modern invention your character can think of? (Or if you aren’t writing sci-fi what magical item?)

As always try to get at least 500 words for a decent attempt, and if your really want a challenge try incorporating all of them into one prompt!

Have fun and keep writing!

May Writing Prompt

Posted on Updated on

Greetings all,
and a special welcome back to one of our gracious Co-Founders just back from her exciting honeymoon in China!!!

DSCF0668 Panjin Red Beach, China

The first of these pictures was actually taken by myself at a certain totally secret location (which may or may not have been taken on a rather momentous occasion and one of the most enjoyable events of the type I think I have ever been to)
The second is Panjin Red Beach in China.

To go with or alternative to this month’s pictures we have a word list:

  • Ride
  • Reason
  • Listen
  • Answer
  • Start
  • Wait
  • Sick
  • Think
  • Popular
  • Few

(Just a reminder the aim with a word list is to try to use all of the words in your response)

Finally, in case none of that has sparked your interest a line:
“You learn more if you don’t knock.”

As always try to get at least 500 words for a decent attempt, and if your really want a challenge try incorporating all of them into one prompt!

Have fun and keep writing!

April 2014 Writing Prompt

Posted on Updated on

Once again we have had a marvelous meeting so now I challenge you to stretch those writing muscles!

The Maunsell Sea Forts, England Twins or Lovers freeimage

I don’t remember where I found the first image but it is of the Maunsell Sea Forts, England. The second image is a free one from the Goodfon website.

To go with these we have a phrase:
“I’d like to see a problem that can’t be solved with explosives.”

Finally to go with the vaguely post-apocalyptic feel that I seem to be getting here, has there been a massive natural disaster in your world? What was it? How did your character (or their ancestors) survive?

As always 500 words + for a decent attempt and the standard extra challenge of using all of them 😀

But above all Have Fun!
