500 Club (3.13.14)

Hello Thursday!

No preamble this week. Let’s just get to the good stuff.

Here’s how:

  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. Finish this opener: Danny stared at the approaching boots. Black boots scuffed and caked in red clay. He chanted to himself, Please don’t look under the bed, please don’t look under the bed, please don’t look…

2. The Middle: Write 500 words where you start in the middle of the scene. Don’t go back and explain, let the story unfold on its own. Can you make it make sense by the end?

As always, throw out the obvious. Embrace your creativity and try something new. And above all, have fun with it.
