Diverse Reader is THRILLED to welcome author and artist L.C. Chase here today. I absolutely love this post! She's reaching out to all of you to prompt her! And WOW! Does she have an awesome gift for someone if you rock the prompt. Be sure to check it all out.
Happy Thursday, everyone!
I had a whole other post planned for today, but life and all that. Things I thought would be done by now aren’t, so my next big project announcement will have to wait just a little longer.
When I was pondering what I might post about instead, I thought about when I started writing seriously a dozen years ago. I joined an online writing community in search of support and guidance, and found a wonderful group of aspiring scribes. The group is gone now, unfortunately, but one of the things we did every week was write a 1,000-word flash fiction – exactly 1,000 words – based on a simple prompt. Whoever won the week got to choose the prompt the following week, and away we went. It was a great creative exercise, and it was amazing how much story some writers could be pack into such a short word limit.
I haven’t been writing much for the last five years, and in a quest to kick those creative juices back into gear I thought I might try revive the challenge. What I would like to do here today is see if any of you would like to play along and “prompt me”. It can be a single word; a half dozen random words that must be included; an object; an opening sentence; a scenario; etc.
If I write a flash fiction staying inside the word limit based on your prompt, I’ll name a secondary character after you, and post the freebie “coffee read” on my website.
If I chose your prompt and am so bitten by the creative bug that I end up writing a novella or novel length story, not only will I name a secondary character after you, but you will receive a free advance copy of the final story.
