Writing Prompt Wednesday!

Halloween’s over (booo!) but if you’re Latino, Día de Muertos has begun! For any who don’t know, Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead is a two-day holiday (Nov. 1 & 2) originating in Mexico where people honor their dearly departed loved ones. For more info, check it out here.

Anyways, here’s a twofer for you! You can pick either of the two prompts or do both, it’s up to you. You can’t even combine the two (le gasp! Bold)!

-Use the this image in your Day of the Dead story: a road of marigold petals.

-Write a story using the five senses to describe  the season of Autumn.

Good luck and happy writing!!

NaNoWriMo 2016!!

NaNoWriMo_logo

 

I mentioned last year that November is National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo. What is it, you ask? For the whole month of November people challenge themselves to write a 50,000 word novel. You can sign up at their website, nanowrimo.com and keep track of your progress, get some useful tools that could help or connect with other writers.

NaNoWriMo starts November 1st and ends November 30th. For any writers looking to challenge and motivate themselves to write that novel they’ve been wanting to get to, this the perfect setup.

For all the writers out there looking to do this challenge officially and unofficially, best of luck and happy writing!!

 

Writing Prompt Wednesday!

A little late in the day but here it is! Try you hand at concrete poetry. What is concrete poetry?   According to Poetry Foundation it is a “verse that emphasizes nonlinguistic elements in its meaning, such as a typeface that creates a visual image of the topic.”

Its a poem that looks like something. Let’s be a little more specific with this. Write a concrete poem using one of these words as your image:

-tree

-cat

-phone (an old phone or an iPhone it doesn’t matter)

-the moon

-an hourglass

A little ambitious especially if you’re not a poetry person but hey, you could get creative and turn it into flash fiction eh? Good luck and happy writing!!
