Writing Prompt Bonanza Week 5

In an effort to aid my goal of writing a novel for this year, I needed some kind of motivation.

And so an idea popped into my head.

Writing Prompts.

I know, I never thought I would use them either. I’ve been generating a list of writing prompts, so far around 60 or so, and starting tomorrow I’m going to focus on hitting 500 words for each prompt. 500 words at the least. One prompt a day.

Every Sunday, I’ll post a new list of prompts that you will begin to work on the next day. You should shoot for 500 to 600 words. Remember, these are going to serve to jump-start our creativity.

Anyways, I challenge any of you young writers, or writers in general to work with me on these writing prompts if you want. Keep what you write to yourself, or send them to me and I’ll post them on my blog for others to see. It’s completely up to you.

If you want to send them to me, send them to runafterthe1.prompts@gmail.com and I’ll post them as an addition to my prompt or as a post all on their own if I didn’t write one for that day. If you send them to me, be sure to include your name at least so that I can give credit to you.

So…get your pens, or fingers ready because tomorrow it continues, and without further ado, this weeks writing prompts!

Monday, February 27:      I carefully backed away from the snarling dog. His teeth were bared and a long strand of saliva dripped from his mouth.

Tuesday, February 28:     “I must say, I do enjoy a delicious apple once in a while.”

Wednesday, February 29:     And then the lights went out.

Thursday, March 1:     First, an elbow to the jaw, second, open palm to the solar plexus, then the killing blow.

Friday, March 2:     “Duck!”

Saturday, March 3:     The tiger paced back and forth, never moving its eyes from her face.

Sunday, March 4:     The cat just lay there in the sun, sleeping as if that was all it needed to do.
