As most know, I'm revamping the MSM website with my own RL writing, with only a small section reserved to write about anything virtual that catches my interest, and one of the sections I've added I'm having a lot of fun with because it absolutely stimulates the creativity. It's called "Writing Prompts" and I have 17 lined up so far to write about. The premise of this exercise is to get people to write and be creative, because the writing prompts are only suggestions, and you can take them anywhere you want. My goal is to also make them educational, and the topic of these Writing Prompts are random, and could be about anything. I get my Writing Prompts at Twitter because I follow them there, as well as FB and their website. --------------------------------------------------- Here are the Writing Prompt suggestions I have lined up so far: Title: The Bookmark Writing Prompt: "Scribbled on the back of a bookmark, she read the most interesting thing ... " Title: The Letter Writing Prompt: "One fine day, the postman brought me a letter ... " Title: Whitehouse Cook Writing Prompt: "Your temp agency sends you to the Whitehouse as a cook, not realizing that you checked the wrong box and do not know how to cook … " Title: Disappearing People Writing Prompt: " Inside a supermarket, you watch people disappear in front of your eyes … " Title: Mysterious Stone Writing Prompt: "While exploring a cave, a geologist finds a stone that is not of this Earth … " Title: Whispers Writing Prompt: "He whispered in her ear and walked away … " Title: The Number 13 Writing Prompt: "Write about the number 13 ... " Title: Time Travel Writing Prompt: "You answer an ad that reads: Wanted, someone to travel back in time with me. Must have own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. Call … " Title: Inflation of Time Writing Prompt: "Researching the quantum origins of consciousness, you discover that you can inflate half seconds and extend time … " Title: Blood Donation Writing Prompt: "You go to donate blood, but something goes terribly wrong … " Title: Talking Pet Writing Prompt: "One day, your pet starts talking to you … " Title: Supernatural Powers Writing Prompt: " Each room in a strange house gives a different supernatural power to anyone who falls asleep in it … " Title: The Sounds of Secrets Writing Prompt: "The lead singer in a traveling band gives away top security secrets to the enemy in the songs he sings … " Title: Haunted Aisles Writing Prompt: "A nasty trickster ghost haunts a grocery store’s aisles … " Title: The Color Red Writing Prompt: "Paint splattered on a canvas … " Title: Magic Island Writing Prompt (my own because Magic Island is a real place in Hawaii): "As the red orange sun began its decent … " Title: Destination Unknown Writing Prompt: "Your airplane lands and when you disembark, you realize you’re not at your intended destination … " --------------------------------------------------- I'm having SO much fun with these because it really stimulates the creative juices, and I have completed my first one which I will share in a separate thread. I've written "The Bookmark" ... and the prompts are presented in a way that allows your imagination and creativity to go wherever you want it to go, but as I mentioned, I would like these to be educational as well, and present interesting stories in the process. I will publish "The Bookmark" in another thread but it will be the only one I'll share here because I want the rest of them to be available when I relaunch the MSM website. I have other things there too that you won't be expecting, which is part of why it's taking so long for the relaunch. I'm having a lot of fun with what I'm doing, and will announce the relaunch here and on FB when it's ready. BTW ... the Titles of these Writing Prompts are mine, but the Writing Prompts come from their website, or what I've seen on Twitter or FB.
