Turkey Day: Write Away!


Hey guys!

Thanksgiving is coming up, and that means Thanksgiving break, and THAT means more time to write!!

Here are some fun prompts to help you get into the spirit of the turkey:

  • Dana took a deep breath and shut her eyes tight. She knew it was only a matter of time before the turkey would come to life.
  • She looked around, taking in the scene. The whole family was around the table, smiling, laughing, joking around. This was what Thanksgiving was really about. The only thing that could make this Thanksgiving better was walking up the front walk, about to ring the doorbell…
  • The turkey laugh manically, stuffing Francine’s face with mashed potatoes. “Thanksgiving, huh?” it growled, walking around the table on its stub turkey legs. “Well, let’s see how you like it!”
  • Zachariah always hated this time of year. This wasn’t how Thanksgiving was supposed to be. All about the feast, the shopping, the deals… No. There was more to this holiday, and he was going to show them. He was going to show them all.
  • Another Thanksgiving come, another Thanksgiving passed. Every year it was the same. No one to celebrate with, no family to be thankful for, and Jack like it like that. No one could hurt him that way. He liked being alone, and nothing could change his mind. Not even her.

Enjoy your holiday, guys, and for those who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, have a radical time doing whatever you choose to do. Stay safe!

 

Much love,
Kim

Motivation


It’s been a reallyyyyyyy long time. The blog hasn’t been getting much activity for a while.

So I wanted to motivate people when writing, no matter if it’s a blog or just writing.

I, and many other Storybird users have had a long battle with writer’s block. I get an amazing general idea, but when I try to put it down, it doesn’t write. It doesn’t work. I don’t know why we can’t think of things to write, and I don’t know how to cure it. So my form of inspiration is a challenge for all readers and Storybird members out there.

I’ll give you the One Sentence To Spark You. And you guys can use it, and write down one paragraph, no matter how good or simple it is. It may give you an idea! Good luck battling writer’s block, every one. I know it can be hard, but if we all give each other ideas, we can all fight it together,

Today’s OSTSY is:

Imagine if Storybird didn’t exist.

Up for the Challenge?


GaladrielSkywalker (aka Galadie/Gala) suggested this uber-cool writing challenge on APT today:

It would be very interesting to write from the point of view of a blind person.

Really hard, but interesting. You couldn’t really describe anything. You would have to rely on tasting, touching, smelling, etc.

It would be an excellent writing challenge.

 

Sounds fun, no? Anyone here up for the challenge? =D

Happily Ever After?!


Let’s do an activity!

Don’t you love those Disney princess movies? They’re so cute and it proves that girls who struggle can make it in the world.

Except… It’s not the real world. Doesn’t it all just seem a little unrealistic?

That’s where you come in. Write paragraph or so about what happened after the Disney movies like Cinderella and Beauty And The Beast.

An example:

Cinderella

Unfortunately, after Cinderella married the charming prince in her beautiful glass slippers once more, her heels shattered and she cut her dainty foot on the glass.

“Oh no! My beautiful shoes!” Cinderella exclaimed. “Ouch, my foot hurts!”

The prince, sitting next to her in the carriage, tried to move the glass out of the way and examine her foot, but his hand was cut also. Ouch! It was a terrible mess, and on their wedding day!

Get the idea? 😛

Have fun, guys! ❤
