Write Now Prompt for January 10, 2014


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:

If only he had taken the picture from farther back.


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.

    • I have just re-written a new short story, but I sent it off to Kindle with a really nice cover, before I received this post.. Its called -The Uncertainty Of Love and previously in a slightly shorter version, it came second in a competition.
      I know that what you have said about publishers is true, so why is it that in this digital age, they still hold all the cards? What I mean is that a competition entry only had a limited readership, probably only members of that group, anyway..

    • Great imagery in that poem!

  1. I’m posting mine here in the comment section and hope that is all right:

    If only he had taken the picture from farther back, he might have also caught the gunman in his lens, rifle extending from the brush targeting the candidate in his scope. Two lens: One to capture life. One to end it. If only he had taken the picture from farther back, he might have been able to change the outcome.
