Write Now Prompt for Jan 8, 2013


At Today’s Author, our first goal is to get you (and us) to write. Write Now is our own collection of prompts to help you do that. With Write Now we’re not talking about writing, or trying to teach anyone how to write. Write Now is all about putting pen to paper.

Today’s Prompt:

Steven Arvide’s day was about to get worse…


How to play along with our Writing Prompts

  1. Write in any format or style you wish: short story, poem, script – whatever you like.
  2. Write for at least 5 minutes. There is no time limit – write for as long as you wish!
  3. Editing is not required, though we do recommend that you run a spell check at least.
  4. Post your work to your blog and include a link back here so your readers can find other writer’s work, too.
  5. Come back here and provide a link to your work on the Write Now! prompt for which it was written.
  6. Read other authors’ posts and leave constructive comments.

Important Note: When you post a draft of your work online, it may be difficult to find a publisher who will accept it, as many see an online document as being previously published. It may also be ineligible to be submitted for certain writing competitions. Always check publisher’s and competition guidelines before using a draft you put online.

He pumped his fists and turned from side to side, acknowledging the support from imaginary throngs of adoring fans. It was days like these when he needed them most. He dropped his hands to his hips, nodding his thanks to the crowd. He was on his own, but they were rooting for him. That was all he could ask for.

    It was time to get to work.

    • Liked it. The thought of a cat’s ability to understand human psyche leading to someone’s bad day is intriguing.
