February’s Prompt

My January story is posted. You might be wondering what prompted the story that emerged. I honestly don’t know. I didn’t write from an outline like I have in the past. Instead, what I did is every time I sat down to work on it, I just wrote what came to mind.

The process ended up being fairly painless. In the past I have sat down and written out a rough map of where I want my story to head and any key events I want included. I didn’t do that this time. I just wrote.

I have mixed feelings about the experience, but I think I’m going to try it again.

Anyway, if you get a chance, read The Photo in the Hall. It was based on the following prompt:

“While dog-sitting, a mustachioed private detective uncovers a hidden family secret.”

For February, I am using a different method of topic generation. Last month, I used The Amazing Story Generator. It is a little book with pages that you can mix and match to create story ideas. I let my husband pick last month.brainstormer

For February I decided to use an app. The app is called The Brainstormer.

Essentially, the Brainstormer lets you hit a dice and it randomly selects 3 words for you.

So, February’s prompt is….

“Invention.” “Arthurian.” And “priest.” arthurian book

Happy writing everyone!

Next story to be posted… February 28, 2015.
