Writing Prompts! – A Game

One of the goals for my blog is to provide inspiration for writers to follow their dreams, and one of the biggest problems writers face is writers block! That is why I am starting something new here,

Writing Prompts!  –  A Game

Every once in a while, in order to light the fire for creative writing, I’m going to post a writing prompt. I’ll write a sentence or two of what comes to my mind – then in the comments field below – I ask you to write a sentence or two of your own to the writing prompt. I’d love to see what we all come up with. Anyone can post, you don’t have to sign up or have an account to comment, anyone can add on to another’s post, or comment regarding mine. It will be organized under the category of Writing Prompts, and it may help you get those juices flowing. It may even help someone get back in the writers seat or inspire a child to start writing.  Let’s all write and have fun with it!

    This looks like fun. “There it was, the stain that had been treated over and over again. Each time I washed that jacket, it looked clean. Each time I took it to the dry cleaners it looked clean, and yet each time I pulled it out of the closet ready to wear it, that same exact stain was back! Was i going insane? Were my eyes playing a trick on me?

    There it was the amulet that I had sought. The magic would be mine just as soon as I recite the incantation.

    There it was, the diamond from my ring. If the sun hadn’t been shining on it just right, I never would have seen it!
