Truly, if you don't come back here every week to see what others have written for a prompt, you're missing gold. Each week I see them (both here and later in the week at Improbable Press), and each week I'm grinning like a fool at the magic made with a few words.
It takes so little to imagine so much and whether the stories are 50 words or in the case of last wee 580 perfect jewels, they're proof positive again and again and again how unique and precious is creativity. We can all hear the words pride parade and flag and between twenty people there will be twenty wildly different imaginings even if every single person was handed the same set-piece for their story.
What I'm trying to say is look, read, enjoy the prompt fills in the comments each week. And if ever they move you, if ever they bubble up fifty words or five hundred…let them. Share 'em if you like, don't if you don't. Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy what these prompts create in the minds of others because each week I'm charmed, amazed, tickled, surprised, and those are wonderful things.
Writing the Story Behind the Words—Last Week's Prompts
Here's a few tastes of what we saw last week for the never have I ever writing prompt. Feel free to read back, to fill any prompt that calls you, and as soon as I clear out the bots, I'll approve 'em as soon as possible.
And may your week be a good one, one and all.
