PROMPTuesdays: Let’s Make Writing Fun Again!

April 21st, 2008

Seasons of the Mind

 

Let Your Imagination Bear Fruit.

 

So I want to be a writer. How about you? Or, maybe you just want to play with words, take pleasure in the creation of something thought-provoking, humorous, insightful?

 

Either way, I’ve decided to do something on San Diego Momma to inspire me, flex my writing muscles and make writing fun again.

 

To that end, what I’m going to do is this:

 

Every Tuesday, I will post a “PROMPTuesday” entry, where I’ll introduce a writing prompt and ask interested promptees to write on it, post it in their blog or if you don’t blog, in the comments section.

 

I’d LOVE to read what you’ve written and as I’m already wowed by most of your blogs/comments, this will do one of two things: cause me to writhe in jealousy or inspire me. (Probably a combination of both.) I will also participate in all prompts and post my entry here.

 

So here are the “rules:”

  • You must write your entry in 10 minutes. This encourages top-of-mind, primal thinking before the ego and judgmental brain kicks in. Just set a timer, make your kid count to 600 slowly, whatever. It’s an honor system. And I trust you.
  • Keep to 150 words or less.
  • Use Mr. Linky (he’ll be here tomorrow), to post your entry, so everyone can read them. You don’t have to link back to me. I don’t care. Just write, I want you to write. If you don’t have a blog, please post your entry in the comments section.
  • A new PROMPTuesday post will appear here every Tuesday morning and writers/just having funners will have until 11:59PM Pacific Standard Time to participate.
  • Please have fun. Don’t put pressure on yourself. Together, let’s rediscover the simple joy of the writing process.

 

Other Stuff:

 

I will be bastardizing many of the prompts from The Observation Deck, tweaking them here and there to screw them up royally make them uniquely my own.

 

Prompts will be at my whim. If I say, “egg,” and “horror genre,” you will know what to do. Or not. That’s the beauty.

 

There will be some flash fiction, where you are given 3 minutes to write. Have you done this? It’s amazing what your mind dredges up.

 

Main thesis: I want this to be fun. BUT, I also want it to be fruitful. SO, at the end of three months, I will put those that have been be-prompted the most consistently (3 times and more) into a hat or Tinkerbell box and have Toots or Booger (probably Toots, Booger’s fingers are not to be trusted) and pull a name to receive something totally cool and awesome. And probably writerly. But I promise it won’t be a scary egg.

 

The first PROMPTuesday post will be here at midnight tonight.

I LOVE this idea. You’re so clever. :)

Okay Google Reader is cursing me because I’ve neglected him (and consequently, you) so I must go catch up now…

On April 21st, 2008, Steph said:

This is such a fabulous idea. But mercy-me-oh-my-fish, I can’t do it. x365 is killing me here. It eats my brain.

I absolutely can’t wait to see everyone else’s (including *yours).

On April 21st, 2008, Amanda said:

Dude, I’m totally in! I have a boring post streak at my personal blog right now. This could be fun! I have given myself prompts, but I don’t finish them. This will give me nice kick in the pants to meet a deadline. Thanks!

On April 21st, 2008, Angela said:

I’m in! Yay!

On April 21st, 2008, Jenn @ Juggling Life said:

I love it. I might not be able to participate right away (finals, term papers, yuck), but I’ll jump in the semester is over.

On April 21st, 2008, Myra said:

definitely count me in! i would love to try to be “writerly.” ;)

On April 21st, 2008, Cheri said:

Sounds great. Challenging. I’m scared of not being writerly right. But Mr. Linky sounds naughty, so I’m in.

It’s 11:46 and I’m soooo tired! But I’ll wait… ;-)
