I'm not sure if you like a daily prompt but here's one anyway. I remember this one from Writer's Digest and still haven't got around to it yet.

Without using the word "red", "sweet", "fruit" and "crunchy", describe apple(s).

Prompt time! [Oct. 6th, 2006|12:28 am]

[Current Mood |creative]

Alright, since no one has posted one, and it's *checks time* October 6, I figured I might as well.  So here's the first prompt.  Can we try to do these daily?  Cause I found that very helpful last year.  

Prompt: Look out your window.  Write about the first person you see.  Who are they?  Where are they going?  Why?  Let's make it 387 words.  

Have fun!  :)

Almost time... [Sep. 28th, 2006|10:03 pm]
Quillers writing novels!


It's almost October...which means it's almost November...which means it's almost time to start NaNo again!  I don't know about you, but I think it's about time this LJ gets bumped back onto people's flists to get people thinking about NaNo again.  I'm super excited for this year, because I'm going to try for 70,000 words!  Yay insanity!  

Who's planning on doing NaNo?

My characters are about to enter the forest of Asshoooghasg. Now, this forest is supposed to have some sort of sinister spell that was cast by Giselle Beau Pre, the evil sorceress.

So, should the spell turn Adri against Puck, embody their darkest fears or something else entirely?

I've posted this in almost 87 other places, but I'm trying to get as many ideas as I can.

In my story I need to create a name for an alcoholic beverage. Something that sounds strong, i.e. would put hairs on your chest. The name of the tavern this shall be served in is The Wise White Bumblebee, but it doesn't need to relate to that. I just like the name of my tavern.

I'm suprised no one has posted this yet, but I figured I might as well. Nano started three days ago, and everyone seems to be going well. I think we should try to keep this LJ up and running...for ideas and such. Yes...we have a thread at SQ as well as a thread at the NaNo site...but LJ's are cool!

So...wish each other luck, talk about your novel, moan about the pain! Let's NaNo!

Prompt Time! [Oct. 23rd, 2005|04:44 pm]

Yes, another one.

Take one day of your life and fictionalize it enough to have it happen to your character. Write that. Let's say, 500 words.

It doesn't have to be during the course of the story -- could be before, after, whenever.

Another Prompt [Oct. 22nd, 2005|11:22 pm]

Have a prompt.

Create a discussion between yourself, the author, and your main character. It can be actually in the story, and the MC doesn't know who you are, or it can be as you are writing, with the MC commenting on exactly WHAT you're making him/her do. Have fun! Say...700 words.

A prompt for our villians [Oct. 22nd, 2005|10:53 am]
Quillers writing novels!

It seems that my writing is being confined to weekends, so I'll answer the prompts tonight.

I have one of my own.

From your villian's pov, write the best thing that has happened to him in the last year, or in his entire life.

Or, if you're feeling goofy, have your villian look at The Evil Overlord site and talk about what's there, and why he'd (she'd) never be so stupid.

I'll post tonight.
