Weekly Writing Prompt — April 9, 2014 Edition

Warm April Greetings To You:

The work shop last night was another intimate affair. Those that attended got some juicy details on book reviews — the how, the why, the where, and the who, of course.
I’m missing many of you. But we can’t look at changing when the work shops are until January of 2015. Regardless, it seems no matter what day and time, some of you won’t be able to come. Do know that I always plan to give good information, exercises, and encouragement to follow your writing dreams and desires.
If there is a topic you would like covered in the work shops, please let me know and I’ll do my best to get it on the schedule. We meet again April 22, at the North Bend Library, 6 p.m. I hope to see more of you there. The topic is “How to be on an agent’s MUST HAVE list.”
Today’s prompt is a more traditional prompt. I’ll give you a scenario and you try to write a short story or scene in your WIP around the prompt. Try to get at least 1500 words.
You or your main character is a writer (haha, big stretch, I know), and everything you write keeps happening around you. What does the writer do?
Go. Write. Don’t worry about editing, punctuation, spelling, none of it. The goal is to just get the words down.
Don’t put it off. Go do it now. Or put it on your daytimer/calendar to make it happen before next week. Just do it.
Writers Write. So, go write.
And now your moment of Writing Zen:

“One can be absolutely truthful and sincere even though admittedly the most outrageous liar. Fiction and invention are of the very fabric of life.” ~ Henry Miller

Falling, like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.” ~ Lord Byron
