It’s nearly Easter break! If you can believe it with how cold the past few days have been–apparently snowstorms are predicted for England…
April snowstorms bring May’s reform?
Whatever is going to happen, I’m looking forward to having a break and getting some more writing done!
Today’s writing game: Snap Shot
The rules: Stare at the picture. What does it make you think of? What story is it telling? Okay–thought of something? Good. Now set a timer to 10 minutes and start writing that story. Ready, set, go!
How did you find that? Here’s what I wrote–I really enjoyed the abstract interpretation that ensued! My boyfriend joined in and wrote this poetic piece.
Feel free to share your interpretation of this prompt in the comments below or anywhere you like!
For today’s writing prompt, I tried using a sentence generator. Whilst more open-ended than my usual prompts, it seemed to be sufficiently story-prompting. At least, it seemed better than the automatic sentence the generator starts with: “If the bunny rabbit and the tooth fairy had babies, would they take your teeth and leave chocolate for you?” Sorry–what? I have so many questions…
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:
She was too short to see over the fence…
If you feel like it, post what you’ve written in the comments! I always love reading it.
