500 Club (7.17.14)

Hello Thursday!

The summer monsoon has finally arrived here in the desert. The temperature only slightly drops as the humidity soars. Step out side only if you want to know how it feels like to boil. So instead, let’s bend our backs over the keyboard and write something new. Something intense to match the weather.

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. Three’s Enough: Three characters are present. One has a request, one has problem, the last has a secret. In 500 words, what happens?

2. Trouble Is Coming: Build tension by creating an impending doom that the reader is aware of, but the characters are not.

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