Thursday Writing Prompt

I meant to write a nice long post ranting about the sad state of affairs in the world today…but I ran out of time (it IS a big topic, after all), and I’ve got an appointment with a hot, sweaty lecture hall and 80 or so students in about 20 minutes…soooo, here’s a writing prompt instead 🙂

You know the drill: take these elements and sit down and write a new story.  Don’t obsess.  Don’t over-think.  Just do it.  Who knows?  Something glorious may come out.

  • Plot element:  something goes “bump” in the night
  • Setting:  at sea
  • Character:  a clumsy witch
  • Wild card:  a family heirloom

Well…have at it, and let me know if you come up with anything good.

Happy writing!

  1. Ayn Oracle

    There was a sad witch in a boat

    out sailing wearing her grannies coat.

    The boat tilted to lee

    spilling her into the sea

    The coat drug her down

    She noted with a frown.

    Out with the tide

    and that ended her ride
