NaNoWriMo 2011: Writing Challenges

8 Nov

Need a writing prompt to get those writerly juices flowing? I’m here to help with Prompty Tuesday! Grab your drink of choice, strap yourself to that chair, and get ready to bolster your word count, because I have a few challenges for you.

Alphabet Absurdity
Use the following words in a scene: handwritten, harmony, hunter, hand-me-down, hedgehog.

Random Fun
Write a scene involving a dinner party, an anonymous letter, and a handmade quilt.

Scenarios
A waiter finds a kitten with a note attached to its collar that reads: “You’re in danger.”

Katamari Damacy Cat

I don't have a picture of Gambit with a note attached to his collar, but I do have one of his Katamari Damacy phase.

Have an itch to do more writing exercises? You can view all the Prompty Tuesdays here.

Happy Writing!

Aliens invade Prompty Tuesday

26 Jul

Prompty Tuesday is here once again! I’ve missed a few due to the insanity that is Camp WriMo/ JulNoWriMo, but here is a fun scenario to help you flex those writerly muscles.

A group of extraterrestrials run a tourist trap in New Mexico.

Happy Writing!

Imperial Chicken predicts the future.

5 Apr

I missed three Prompty Tuesdays while my laptop was out of commission. Here are the writing prompts I had planned on sharing with you, including a new category called scenarios. Enjoy!

RANDOM FUN
Write a scene involving: getting lost, a fortune-teller, and watermelon.

SCENARIOS
A rogue chicken picks up the fight against demons.

MUSICALITY
When people hear the Imperial March, they think of Darth Vader and Star Wars.

This is your main character’s theme song. Is your MC a badass in an alternate universe or maybe a geeky kid out for vengeance? Start writing and find out what your mind has in store.

The awesome thing about writing prompts is their versatility. They can be used individually or together to create a new experience. For this Prompty Tuesday, combine one, two, or three of the prior exercises.

Happy writing!
