Welcome to another week of writing. Today use the information provided to write a story: pick a location and characters, then create your own story. Characters: a man and a woman, a boy and a girl, two older women in a bar, a zoo, an airport or a swimming pool. Now it’s your turn, write a story.
W.P. # 197 You have been given characters and a setting, now go write your story. Characters: a man and a woman, a boy and a girl, two older women. Locations: a bar, a zoo, an airport or a swimming pool. Now it’s your turn, write a story.
Welcome to another week of writing. Hopefully the prompts and inspirational quotes are helping you to keep the pace and write. Write a story about someone who starts their dream job, and realizes that they are ill-prepared.
W.P. # 194 Today, write a story about someone who starts their dream job, and realizes that they are ill-prepared.
This week / month we will be focusing on setting or the importance of place and incident. Remember that where a story takes place is just as important as what happens. Focus on your character and setting this week.
W.P. # 188 Write about a trip to a restaurant that ended in a disaster. Make changes to the prompt as you see fit. Try to do 15 to 30 minutes of free writing to get yourself psyched. All the best for the weekend and do take care.
Think of the stories that make up a part of your culture. Choose something memorable and traditional and write about it. Or explore some of the ideas offered below.
W.P. # 185 Everybody likes a good horror story. How about writing one about being possessed. In the Caribbean there are many myths and folklore, try your hand at writing one. A different kind of story. One where you introduce a mythic character or some other element of your native folklore…Happy writing.
Sometimes we write about people and places and things, but what happens when we stand still and just observe life. What do we see in the vastness of life around us? How do we find hope and express or experience ourselves?
W.P. # 175 Today you are a stone. What is life like for the human or animal or plant closest you? From your perspective, what do they see, feel or hear…
W.P. # 147 (As we all know Father’s Day is coming up, so why not honour the men/father’s in our lives by telling them how much they mean to us. And if you’re a guy, try to remember all the neat things your father taught you. Things that you will one day teach to your sons and daughters.) Write about a memory of your father.
As writers (screenwriters, poets and artists) sometimes we get stuck in the process of creating ideas, forgetting for a moment that even if two novels share an inciting incident they will be inherently different because of the approach of their authors.
Today, I started reading John Lescroart’s The Fall and discovered this aforementioned similarity with The Cuckoo’s Calling. On reading more I discovered that this tale was unique. Different. Because the story to be told wasn’t ab out a supermodel who had been murdered, but a teenage girl who was looking forward to moving out of a group home.

So, your task if you choose to accept it is to write about a fall.
