Get Ready for Writing Prompt Wednesday


Announcing a new way to exercise your fingers and imagination.
 
No, that's not what I mean.
 
Spanking Romance Reviews is starting a new Wednesday activity for the fun and enjoyment of everyone. Yes, even you.
Here are the details. This is a new event so we hope you'll come and participate tomorrow and have some fun.
Writing Prompt Wednesday

Each Wednesday Spanking Romance Reviews will host a writing prompt for your fun and entertainment.

1.       What is a writing prompt? A writing prompt is a line or two of a story or dialogue or a photo or anything that might inspire a story.

2.       What do I do? A writing prompt is meant to get your creative juices flowing with lots of free thinking and no editing. Once the prompt is posted, we suggest you give yourself a very limited amount of time,  say 10-15 mins, to free write based upon the prompt.

3.       Then what? Then post your response to the writing prompt in the comments. Responses are limited to 250 words…and yes, we’ll be counting.

4.       After you’ve posted your response, take a look at what others have written. See how many different ways a few words or a photo can be interpreted. Feel free to comment on their submissions too---in a friendly and encouraging way.

5.       Who can participate? Everyone! (Over 18, that is.) This is not just for the “professionals” out there. We want to see everyone give their writing muscles a workout. It’s fun. Give it a try.

6.       You said there would be prizes? Yes. Every week one random participant will be selected to receive a prize. ***Note*** anyone who would like to donate a book or other prize, please contact me celestejones215@rocketmail.com

7.       Any other rules? Of course!

Here is the list of no-no’s

·         No underage participants

·         No scenes of rape, incest or forced sex

·         No shameless self-promotion. We know it when we see it.

8.       Does it have to include spanking? No! Let your imagination run wild, but only for 250 words.

9.       Can it be silly? Yes, we encourage silliness.

P.S. I'm over at Cara Bristol's Blog today for Historical Week talking about Lady Katherine's Comeuppance and writing Regency Romance. Please stop by!

  1. Well, this sounds like fun. LSF has run contests like this in which authors write a story based on a photo.

    1. Then I'll expect to see you there tomorrow, Rollin! This is just for fun, but there will be a random drawing for something (tomorrow is a $5 Amazon gift card) just to make it interesting.

      It really is meant to be fun and to encourage everyone to break out of the box a bit. Hope to see you there!
