What Will You Write?

What would you write if you’re given a couple of paragraphs and a theme?  How would you finish the scene in under one thousand words?  Well, this challenge is for the writer in you.

Every week or two, I post a challenge, a prompt that starts out a scene, and entrants must finish the scene in whatever way they want.  The rules are simple:

  • Copy the prompt.
  • Finish the scene in your own words based on the genre or theme provided.  It must be under 1,000 words.
  • Post the scene on your blog.
  • Link back to the post with the original prompt on this blog.
  • Post a link back to your blog post in the comments section.

I’m not a stickler on content, profanity is fine, sexual references are fine, but just no descriptions of sex.  Erotica isn’t welcome.

When the deadline has passed, I will read all the entries and choose a winner.  The prize for the winner is a chance to be a guest judge and write their own prompt.  Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?
