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