The one word writing prompt of the day is MAYHEM. Here is a sample of what I’ve written using this word. Have Fun and Happy Writing!
There were people everywhere. I could smell rubber burning from a car that someone had set on fire. The fire was the only source of light in the blackness and looters gathered around it like moths to a flame. I crouched behind some thick hedges and watched as they shattered store fronts with baseball bats and bricks. I went numb as they carried out televisions, computers, and car stereo systems and shoved them into their cars. The city was crumbling around me. There was no justice, only mayhem.
Today we will be reusing, rewriting or recycling this classic fairy tale. Think of the possibilities! What if Little Red was the one who tried to lure the wolf and eat it? What if she was actually her Grandmother’s killer? Let your imagination run wild on this one and don’t be afraid to explore the darkness! Have fun and as always, Happy Writing!
The writing prompt for today will explore both FICTION and NON-FICTION. It’s fun to mix real life with fiction isn’t it? Sometimes I like to sit in Starbucks or the mall and watch people, I like to make up stories about them and what their lives are like. Try this the next time you’re out and about.
Everybody loves a mysterious strangers and there is inspiration everywhere! A cute barista, an old man complaining at the bank, the eccentric woman who sits on the park bench every Wednesday afternoon in her cat pajamas (if you see this woman it’s probably me) . Think of an interesting stranger you’ve seen around and develop a story.
Be sure to use dialogue,gestures, mannerisms and ways of speaking. Don’t spend much time on physical descriptions. Focus on showing the inner conflict of your muse through their actions and words. Have fun and as always, Happy Writing!
