Monthly Writing Prompt
I love words! Words make great prompts and lead to new ideas. So today scroll through your dictionary, spontaneously choose a word. Don't search, just pick, and use this word to help you write. Use it to steer your main character, twist your plot or to bring your latest work to a epic end. No matter what word you randomly get, write. Write until you can't write anymore!
Writing Tip
Our monthly writing tips are written by our very own TerishD. You can read more in Terish's Blog located in "The Abstractions" area of the forum.

Right now writing a set of stories. Kinda bland stuff, but it has potential. There is a definite story, but at the moment not certain if it is entertaining. I am still writing.

Once I have the story written, then I can consider the problems that I recognize. Like editing, spicing a story to give it more appeal is a job of a writer. The primary responsibility is to tell a good story, but it helps to add in the emotion, the descriptions, the actions that will pull a person into the narrative. As with spices, some consider it impossible to add too much while others react with just a pinch. You are the writer, so find the levels that you and a good percentage of your audience will find satisfying.

PostSubject: autumnal leaves   September 1st 2013, 6:22 am

Autumnal Leaves.

Withered leaves are falling curled up looking
like empty ice cream cones. I picked a couple
put them in the breast pocket of my shirt;
then rain, I got soaking wet on my scooter.
The leaves looked like dead hands of someone
long time gone, veins and sinew without skin.
I sought shelter behind a big grave stone that
would protect me from the westerly wind.
It didnīt, so I just sat there sinking into the soft
ground becoming an autumnal leaf.
Had earth in my mouth when it stopped raining
and sun broke through. Dug myself out of this
unwanted grave caked by drying mud, and not
again shall I pick dead leaves when there are
evergreens around that will promise life eternal.
