500 Club (6.26.14)

Hello Thursday!

The Summer Solstice has passed, and the days are now starting to shorten. However the heat is still going strong, and only getting hotter here in the desert. A good way to take your mind off it is to throw it at some creative writing.

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. That One Time: Write 500 words about a character meeting one of his or her idols. What’s going through their minds? Why is it even happening? Make the reader feel the moment.

2. Almost: Write 500 words about a character who almost meets one of his or her idols. What’s going through their minds? What’s the circumstance for the near miss? Make the reader feel the moment.

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