500 Club (7/12)

I hope you’re ready for another round of writing prompts. Anything to keep your mind off the heat, am I right? For that reason, I tried to make the prompts a bit tricky this time ’round. If you can manage it, your writing will be rewarded. So dive in head first and see where it takes you.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Write 500 words based on one of the two prompts below.
  2. Post it to your blog.
  3. Give us a small taste in the comments below along with a link to the full text.

On to the prompts.

1. Word Choice: Not everything needs to be spelled out. Sometimes deliberately not saying something will best convey your meaning to the reader. Write 500 words about something or someone without mentioning him/her/it specifically in the piece.

2. Character Creation: Create a vivid character by writing their 500 word obituary.
