This prompt requires at least 4 writers and 4 hats (or hat substitutes)
On slips of paper each writer should contribute:
- 3 genres
- 3 character tropes
- 3 places
- 3 objects
All options should be placed into respective hats. (genre hat, character hat, place hat, object hat) and each writer will pull out 1 slip of paper from each hat. Set a timer or watch a clock for 10 minutes. Everyone starts a story that includes the options they just pulled from the hats. At the end of 10 minutes, pass the stories to the left and continue your neighbor’s story, but add your options into the story.
Try it with different increments of time!
That girl/guy you met on Valentine’s Day–you know, the one you met at that “Celebrate The Singles” event–murdered you. How did they do it? Why did they do it? Were you the only one?
What if Eve never ate the apple?
Go outside and walk around your neighborhood or campus. Don’t take a notebook with you. Spend about 30 minutes outside just walking around and observing people, places, and things. When you return, write down your experience.
How do your secondary characters feel about their parents?
Merry Christmas! Thank you so much for following my blog and helping me to build my Writer’s Platform. I never thought, not in a million years, that I would have 300+ followers on anything, so this really means a lot to me. Please help me boost my numbers by following me on Facebook and Twitter.
This has been an incredible year and I can’t believe how much I have written and posted on this website. Not to mention how much I’ve learned. Just having this site is forcing me to keep up with my writing, designing, photography, and even… *shudder* my coding… Between this and Round Robin Writes, I know that I will be able to keep on top of my crafts.
I am so thankful to have the love and support of my family, friends, and my boyfriend Kiel (who maybe bought me a Pandora bracelet for Christmas? hint hint? So super duper hopeful…). And it is always a pleasure to be working with K. Leigh, Magdalyn Ann, K. Carneglia, and Cym Adkins.
In the new year, Round Robin will be publishing a collection of short stories, so be on the look out! Also, I am determined to finish Charlotte Holmes (who is now in the YA age range) and submit to more literary magazines and writing contests.
Looking forward to writing for everyone in the new year!
Well–see you next year!
In lieu of having answered the most common questions about writing, I’ve decided to replace the weekly Tuesday posts with writing prompts. If you are curious about my writing process or have any other questions about writing, specific or general, feel free to contact me using the form on the about page and I’ll be more than happy post your answer.
