Prompts for the week of August 16th 2012
Let’s continue with setting a scene. You write the story. Let the story be serious or funny. It can be an adventure or a story rich in character. You develop it from the prompt.
A man and his wife move to a New England town. As they try to get to know the towns people better they find out everyone thinks the house they bought is haunted. The man starts making up stories about the ghosts in their house to gain attention. The more stories he tells the more become true………take it from there
Create a short story using these five words.
Ancient, window, kingdom, wheelchair, angel.
Remembering Erma Bombeck. 1927 : 1996.
Don’t confuse fame with success. Madonna is one. Helen Keller is the other.
How come anything you buy today will go on sale next week?
My theory on housework is, if the item doesn’t multiply, smell, catch on fire or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one cares. Why should you?
(Erma was a very funny and creative writer, one of the best)
