As some of you know, I once hosted a monthly speculative fiction writing prompt. It is now in the capable hands of Carol Forrester, and I encourage you to stop by her blog tomorrow and check out November’s photo. I’m not resuming the prompt, but I thought I’d toss a challenge into the blogosphere for NaNo November. Pingback to this post or leave a link in my comments, and I’ll reblog as many of your poems and stories as I can throughout the month.
So what’s the challenge?
Write from the point of view of a creature that doesn’t exist in the “real” world.
Don’t tell us what the creature is. Let us “experience” it through its thoughts and actions.
Write a killer opening line and first paragraph. Hook readers so they’ll click over to your site to finish reading.
Images are fine, but don’t include “the creature” in the image. The point is to “show” with your words.
(Pixabay has awesome, free images.)
Aim for under 500 words, but honor your muse.
Be creative. Keep it family-friendly.
And most of all, have fun.
I’ll be plowing through NaNoWriMo.
