If you’re just tuning in, this month my project was to create four pieces of writing based on Charlotte’s writing prompts from Punch for Prompt.
So far we’ve had:
- Will You Help Me? – A story of a little old lady who is on the receiving end of a request for help.
- Obedient Tongues – Based on real life events in the village of Eyam in 1666 during a plague outbreak and the subsequent quarantine.
- Dinner Plans – A sci-fi comedy about a girl, a captain and a sentient plant.
I had a page full of notes for this week’s piece. It was going to be a poem. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
Unfortunately, life hasn’t gone exactly to plan. My departure from China has been moved forward by 3 weeks, leaving me only 2 weeks to pack up and finish all the things I need to do. Needless to say, I’m a smidgen overwhelmed at the moment.
So, seeing as I am not able to provide some of my own writing today, I suggest you go over to Carole Jane Treggett’s blog and read her post Who Says? which was based on a prompt from Punch for Prompt. It’s a great piece of writing which really gets you thinking.
As you can see, there really is no limit to what you can do with a writing prompt.
Now it’s your turn. Punch for Prompt and see what you end up with!
