This month’s theme was ‘gatekeeping’ and you can find the other pieces under the tag.

For this final #writingwednesday of the month I’m going to give some prompts coneced to the theme and also to the season. Create a work – fiction, poem, creative non fiction, or art based on any of these:

* Gatekeeping
* Censorship
* Exclusionism

* Autumn
* Seasons
* Halloween or Samhain

* “I’m part of the community despite what they say”
* “Sometimes I just go and play in the leaves, like a child does, and it helps me relax”
* “You can smell the change in the air”

Writing prompt/challenge

Sometimes I choose a theme or style for the writing I’m going to post each month. I’ve written 3 sentence fic, drabbles, and this month, double drabbles (200 words).

Since this is Wednesday #5 of the month, for this week’s #writingwednesday I’m giving you a challenge.

Write one flash fiction/fanfic/poem that is one of these:
1) 3 sentences
2) 100 words (exact drabble)
3) 200 words (double drabble)

and relates to one or more of the following:
1) seasons/nature
2) gratitude/thankfulness
3) magic/wish

and for “bonus points” (there are no actual points!) use one of the following:
1) write all dialogue
2) write without using dialogue
3) write so that the first part is the opposite of the second part (eg sun/moon, night/day, despair/hope)

Example: 3 sentences, thankfulness, no dialogue

She couldn’t sleep, restless as she tossed and turned, the night heavy and oppressive. The long dark before the dawn weighed on her, body and soul. When the sun rose she gave thanks, and stepped out into the light.

Hi everyone! For the fifth Writing Wednesday of August here’s a prompt:
HOLIDAY (vacation)
After a few days visiting family this seemed like a nice prompt! If you’d like to write a short fiction about going to the beach, a blog post about your favourite place to visit, or to share a few photos then please do so!
Reblogs of this post are welcome and encouraged. I hope you have fun with this one 🙂



Writing Prompt: story starter

She barged into the office, the door slamming against the wall. She drew her weapon in one smooth movement as she crossed the room so that as she stopped in front of his desk the barrel was now pointed at his head.

He leaned back in his chair, outwardly unperturbed. “Are you going to shoot me?”

She huffed a laugh. “I’ve killed eight men today,” she said. “What’s one more?”

For the first time there was a hint of fear in his eyes.


If the story starter inspires you then have fun writing and please link me so I can read the results!

If you stab someone in the heart you shouldn’t be surprised when the bleed to death

You’re only this affectionate when you want something or you’ve done something wrong. Which is it?

I know I said your life is complicated but I never said I didn’t want to be part of it anyway.

I know it will take time. And I’m here with you, every moment it takes.

I’m not saying it’s a good plan, but at least it’s a plan.

Sleep, my love. I promise I’ll be here when you wake up.
