Another long stretch of no blog posts, time for another writing prompt!
Whether you’re enjoying a summer full of blissful nothing, or are trying to cram work in before a busy autumn, it’s never the wrong time to exercise those writing fingers.
I’ve dubbed this game Fire Starter.
The rules: Write the supplied sentence/sentence fragment at the top of your page, (computer, notebook, etc. Whatever you prefer) set a timer for 10 minutes and start writing whatever you think would follow that first sentence.
He took off the mask.
After you try this out, you can find what I wrote by clicking here (because comparing everyone’s different ideas is the best bit!). I fixed some of the punctuation and spelling to make it easier to read, but this is about fun, not editing. Also, I wrote for more like fifteen minutes because I had an “end” sentence in mind still, when the timer went off, so I just went ahead and kept writing.
If you’re really feeling brave, you can post what you’ve written in the comments because, as I said, comparing our unique takes on the sentence is the best part.
