500 Club (5/26)

It’s Thursday! Time to play the 500 Club.

First, a recap of how it works:

  1. Write 500 words based on one of the prompts below.
  2. Post your 500 word on your blog.
  3. Paste the first couple of lines from your story in the comments here, along with a link to where we can read the rest.

Or, if you don’t have a blog, paste your 500 words in our handy little widgetybop in the sidebar and send it to us to read.

Ready for the prompts?

1. Begin your story with the sentence: A day didn’t go by that [CHARACTER] didn’t think of the time…


2. Write a scene in which an object serves as a symbol of a character’s mental or emotional state. Use a light touch. Subtlety is your goal.

Happy writing!
