Let’s start by addressing what should have been posted in May, but didn’t get finished till yesterday.
Read my May story if you get the chance: “Return to the Island.”
Also, my friend Jennifer Clark has been writing with the prompts each month. Read her May story too! “What She Doesn’t Say.”
The May Prompt used the story cubes. See below to see what I rolled. And then see if you can find all the elements in both Jennifer’s and my story.
For June, I am going to use the theme for a writing contest that I am entering. I am actually working on two stories. I am submitting one to the contest and the other is going to be my June story. And since the contest has a deadline, there is a good chance my story will actually be posted on June 30 like it should be.
I am hoping to enter the Gernsback Writing contest being done by Amazing Stories. If you are interested, see the rules.
Even if you don’t want to enter, but want to join me in writing a story this month, the theme for the contest and for June is:
What will our solar system look like 250 years from now –
a positive take on the exploration, colonization and exploitation of Sol system.
I am very excited about this prompt and can’t wait to share what I’ve written. Working on the contest is part of what delayed my May story (only partly though).
Happy reading and writing this month. Story to be posted: June 30!!!
