Write Now Prompt for Feb 5, 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:

“I think you broke it.”


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.

  1. From my 8 yr old daughter, Danielle – I have cool uncles. I mean, COOL uncles. That’s why I was excited when my mom told me that Uncle Joe, Uncle Frederick and Uncle Pickle were coming to visit. Oh – and did I mention I have a cat? Her name is Sparkles. Anyway, all three uncles were coming tomorrow.

    Well, I have to say, they’re not the smartest uncles ever. Let’s just say Uncle Frederick didn’t even get into the fifth grade and Uncle Pickle got his name because he thought “pickle” was pronounced “pockle,” and who knows what a pockle is? So, the point is, my uncles aren’t the smartest fish in the sea.

    Hurray, here comes their upside-down red helicopter! I’m running around, trying to get everything ready. Dong-ding, there’s the doorbell. Mom races to open it. When the uncles step in, they all start staring at my cat. “Meow, little kitty!” Uncle Frederick said. They all stare in awe at the amazing cat until Uncle Joe reaches out and pets Sparkles. Then, she laid on her back like a dead chicken.

    “I think you broke it,” said Uncle Pickle.

  2. She’s happy to be able to contribute here when the muse strikes her. Having the acceptance of other authors is more nurturing than a mother’s assurances, I daresay, although she has that in spades as well!
