Wow – and welcome to this week’s Prompt Pot writing challenge here at Newshound to Novelist. Can you believe it’s our four-week anniversary already? A massive thanks to everyone who has taken part so far.
There were some beautiful and inspired pieces written following last week’s prompt of birds. Most of you tapped straight into your hearts.
My piece-of-the-week was Danielle’s micro, Two Birds in a Bath posted on her blog. It was a really well written snapshot about her children in the summer. Head over now and have a read if you’re able to (and why not check out who else posted – just scroll down to the comments section).
On now, onward and upwards! I’m really excited to see what you all come up with for this week – especially as your word is ‘magic’.
Will you tell us about the time you visited a birthday party and the entertainment was a magician? Or will you share with us a magic moment from your own life? Perhaps you will be inspired to write about a character who discovers they have magical abilities?
The rules, as always, are to pen your own micro story of 100 words or less, using this week’s prompt.
This week I’m going to have a go at the six-word-story. Feel free to join me too. The thing I find hardest about this style is making such few words into a story rather than just a punchline or an observation.
Remember to pingback to this page and include the tag ‘The Prompt Pot’ so we can find your efforts in the WordPress reader.
The best of luck to you all and I look forward to reading what you come up with.
Here is my magic-inspired tale:
Secretly, she stole magic. Freedom awaited.
