Writing Prompt #13

Happy 2019!

My year started wonderfully with friends, champagne, and games. These included Pass the Parcel, a very British party game which seems to me like an excuse to throw things at family members (I promise I do actually enjoy it).

Of course, now it’s time for me to dive head first into revision in order to pass my exams, starting with evolutionary biology–timed-essay style–on the 14th. But before that, here’s a writing prompt!

Name of the 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.

Today’s sentence fragment:

The bite in his tongue was deep and bloodied…

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.

This sentence was chosen by my sister, you can read her hilarious piece here and my boyfriend’s piece here. I was also joined by Lily (go check out her lovely blog!), who wrote this piece.

Hope 2019 brings you lots of good writing!

  1. Ah no – you’ve discovered the secret about pass the parcel! We loved having you for New Year and I personally would like you here all the time, because you pick movies that I like 🙂 This writing prompt was so much fun, we should definitely do another some time. If you ever want me to join in again, send me a fb message! Hopefully see you soon, and thankyou for shouting out my blog! xxx
