Remember a few posts ago when I was throwing around ideas and one of them was to put up a writing prompt? Remember? The reason I thought it would be a good idea was that I do them every week with my writer's group and I generally find them helpful. When I went to the conference this past weekend, that idea was reinforced in workshops. So that's what we're a-gonna do.
Except writing prompts are usually pretty short and I'm a long-winded broad. So, I'm also going to post some miscellaneous bit of awesome I've found during the week. Just because. Okay? Okay. Here we go.
(There used to be a pic of a little girl in robot war gear here. It's here now.)
Pick up the book that is nearest to you. Take the first name of the author and write it down. Picture a person with that name. (If you know what the author looks like, choose a different book.) For the next fifteen minutes, write a description of that person without using physical markers such as eye, hair, or skin color, height, weight, etc.
If you work with the prompt, I'd love to hear about it. Otherwise, I'm going to end with a birthday shout-out to Magnum, who celebrated his Everything Birthday this week (42!). Happy Birthday, Love.
