Writing Prompts

This is where I’m going to link my writing prompt moments from Twitter once they are finished and I’ve closed them. They come in a variety of styles and do not follow themes exactly. If you’re not familiar with how they work it’s very simple

#Satsplat

This writing prompt gives a theme or word and you write a flash fiction story about it. It’s held obviously every Friday night into Saturday and is moderated by  @craytusjones He usually tweets the theme early Friday afternoon, so keep watch and join in.

#Vss365

This writing prompt gives one word or theme a day and you write a very short story (140 – 280 characters on Twitter) about that word or theme. Some people # the word, others don’t. There is no set rule for posting them, as long as it is used. This type of flash fiction can be very fun and creative, and I love seeing how people use the different words in their work.

#Lnk365

This one is an adaption to the popular Vss game and sponsors two words or themes daily, along with its own website to track them (http://link.jeffwrote.com/). It is a favorite of mine and a fellow writer friend of mine (JeffWrote)  came up with it. So far this game has spawned both Willa and the Dragon (a future short story I think) and my new project The Outer Rim (See other posts about that in Science Fiction)

So if you’re a Twitter user and you have a burning imagination, or just love to write, I suggest you give these two a chance and see what you can come up with. Hope to see you all there!

#PromptPieces

This was something put on by Shameless Plugs podcast on Twitter. They called for prompts from anyone who wanted to participate and could be anything. I mean anything. So then they choose 10 prompts at random and the writers had to use at least 8 of them and craft a story — of course I used all 10, duh — then we passed them in. Lo and behold they wanted me to read it on their podcast! So I recorded it and sent it in. here it is, the short story born from 10 random prompts and of course I just had to link it to another story….Bonus points of you can tell which one.
