Wednesday Writing Prompt (WWP) is a biweekly challenge for you and for me. I’ll post a writing prompt on Wednesday morning. Then anyone who wants to participate can write a 250 to 500 word scene or story in response to it. I’ll post my story on Thursday. You’re invited to to post your scene or story in the comments of my response post. Let’s see where this wacky world of writing takes us!


Here we are–the very first Wednesday Writing Prompt!

I’m excited to get back into the habit of writing fiction. And with you lovely people by my side, I think it will be lots of fun.

This week’s writing prompt is from 642 Things to Write About by the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto and Po Bronson. I’ve had this book for two years and have only done ONE writing exercise from it. It’s time to put this book to good use.


Write 250 to 500 words on this prompt:

I didn’t know what was happening at the time.

Go ahead–get writing! Write whatever comes into your head and just let the words fly. Don’t worry about editing. Just write. And then share your scene or story with us on tomorrow’s post.

What do you think of writing prompts? Will you be participating in WWP?
