Fiction Friday – Writing Prompt #2

Week 2 of the Fiction Friday Writing Prompt exercise. Improve your writing AND your website traffic by participating.

I'm excited to present the second post for our weekly challenge – FICTION FRIDAY! Show me whatcha got! We're doing something a little different this week by using a picture instead of words. A picture is worth a thousand words, they say, so have fun!

This FABULOUS picture was created by Ravven, a spectacular cover and digital artist. Authors…if you're looking for an amazing cover for your self-published books, Ravven is your gal! Please visit her site or her DeviantArt portfolio and show her some love by leaving a comment. Better yet, commission her to do your cover! You'll be seeing a lot of her images here in the coming months.

Writing Prompt #2

Use this picture as your writing prompt:

Guidelines for Writing Prompt

  1. Ponder the prompt for no more than 1-2 minutes, allowing your mind to form ideas.
  2. Set a timer for FIVE (5) MINUTES
  3. WRITE!
  4. When the timer goes off, STOP WRITING. If you have to finish a thought or sentence, do so.
  5. Publish the prompt on your blog as an individual post. Please link back to this post.
  6. Come back here and post the link to your blog.

It's up to you if you wish to clean your writing up and do a little editing prior to publishing on your blog. But the point is not perfection.

What is Fiction Friday?

Fiction Friday is a weekly blog challenge for writers – experienced and aspiring alike. Each Friday at 12:30 am, a prompt is posted here – whether it's text, a quote or even a picture – and those who take up the challenge will write whatever ideas this prompt stimulates. CLICK HERE to see the benefits of participating in this weekly challenge.

Part of what I do here at is encourage authors to build their mailing lists AND give away samples of their writing to their subscribers – free short stories, flash fiction or intriguing writing prompts. Be sure to check out my Mailing List Series for more information and ideas.

In an effort to give authors a little nudge to produce this content, I've created my own Fiction Friday blog challenge. Enjoy!

Happy writing!
