Monthly Writing Prompt
For this month's writing prompt write a scene using the following sentence to start;

The streets were deserted. Where was everyone? Where had they all gone?

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.

Look Back

When not able to write ahead, it helps to look back. In my case I had written a paragraph ahead of the story. What I needed to do was add a section of exposition (talking) presenting some facts. In going back, I realized that I could insert a section where a 'tour' of the surroundings could be done. This allowed for character interaction, story development, and other things that enabled me to present the facts in an entertaining manner.

One should not face a writer's block with the mentality of bursting through it. I have found in my own experience that a writer's block is usually due to my mind indicating that it has a problem in 'channeling' the story. One reason might be a re-imagining of certain story points. Another reason however is that there is a problem in where you are at in the story, so you need to look back and find out the problem with the 'journey' that prevents the tale from advancing.

Granted, but as you get limited funds you find the world getting more expensive and other people are suffering on the street because we are in nationally debt. So you share your money with everyone and then get abducted by aliens. No one sees you ever again.

I wish for a happy wish that would turn into a very dark and morbid wish

Granted.

In the end you wish for a little puppy dog but on the day of its delivery the truck carrying it is involved in a serious motor accident leaving no survivors.

I wish my writing would become famous.

Ooh, címon Toni, making it easy for me to turn this around.

Quote :
I wish my writing would become famous.
Granted! All that you have written in a life time suddenly disappears from your computer. You frantically look around for days, even calling your computer company. You are distraught! Youíve just lost all you had worked for, and you canít help but sleep for about a week as the depression takes over. You slowly get over it and in your depressions place comes motivation. You start to write again, taking new ideas and making them into wonderous things. You work the entire day, save your work and go rest for a good nights sleep.

You wake up the next morning only to realize what you had just worked on had disappeared. You decide itís no longer worth it and you go sit on the couch with a 12 pack of your favorite beer. You turn on the TV and flip through the channels. You stop your mouth agape as you look at what appears to be a book! Itís a walking, talking, living book! Youíre in shock as you watch, realizing this is a book of YOUR writing and it appears to have become famous. Though sadly the contents are worthless, as people donít care whatís in it! They care that your book is alive. You of course get no credit, and are left in the dust as your writing disappears each time never to make you famous and for that matter, nor does it really help your book.

After a few years of fame, your book is burned at the state being called a witch. You receive the ashes of the paper a few weeks later, and all you can do is start over.

I wish I wasnít so sore.

O.o!

Granted, but through your new found natural anesthetic self you find that you cannot feel anything else at all. Your ability to feel love, hate, joy, and stuff. you become upset and come and join me with the beers Smile

I wish i had more time...

Granted, but then slowly you have more time, but the more time is really ruining your schedule and then you begin to go insane.

I wish that someone would grant me an evil wish that turned out to be granted with an evil thing happening to me

Granted!

The demon spawn of Miracles takes your favorite ink pen and runs around writing on the Scribbles forum. The moderators get angry and make you sit in the corner because it was your pen.

I wish that electric company would get its act together and stop charging me a arm and a leg for much of nothing.

Granted, You now have the ability to beat all the video games that you refuse to play or do not know about.

However once you are willing to play them or learn about them, you can no longer beat them.

I wish I the Midas Touch (Literally)

Granted!

You wake up Energized, but it only last 10 seconds, where upon you
spend the remainder of the day ins a dull haze, you get home that
evening and pass out in bed, someone else bed, in
someone else's house, naked, with cameras and someone saying "and action" as you drift off into dream land.

You become a overnight Porn Sensation, sadly you never woke up to enjoy the royalty checks.

I wish I had X-Ray vision.

Granted, but it isn't good music . . . it sounds like a cross between nails on a chalkboard and a sick donkey, and it is so bad that an angry mob soon forms and chases you into the arctic tundra, where they abandon you to die . . .

I wish I could save soujiroseta from his terrible fate . . .

Granted! But when you wake up the next day you notice that you're totally mean, selfish and a person you didn't want to become, left alone in the world, with no friends or family.

I wish I would be the way I want to be.

Granted.

But No one likes you being the way YOU want to be. They burn you to death in your sleep.

I wish I was built like a Greek god.

Granted!

But the god you're modeled after is Pan. You're so ugly women and small children run away at the mere sight of you, and goat legs just aren't suited for chasing after them. The only work you can find is with a traveling freak show. You send the rest of your days alone and horny, both literally and figuratively.

I wish there were more hours in the day.

Granted.

There are now 100 hours in a day, but you still only get to sleep for 4 of them. The heavy demands that this places on people starts to drive massive amounts of people insane (yourself included) and riots break out in the street. Because most of the military has gone insane as well, they turn their weapons on you and kill the general population, full scale war erupts from this action and then it becomes a global war killing off most of the human life. The last surviving humans are the government leaders, who finally come out of hiding to realize that there are no more "people" for them to lead. They turn upon each other in some twisted desire for power and control and end up being trampled to death by mutated gophers.

Since no other animal really gives a damn about how many hours are in a day the rest of the world goes on as and lives great now with out humans screwing up their ecosystem.

I wish I was wealthy.

Your wish is granted my dear Urs however with wealth comes responsibility and a million family members you never knew existed. You feel bad for them and begin giving each of them a certain percentage only to find that your calculations were incorrect and damn now your in debt for about 50 grand. Good luck my dear Urs.

Next: I wish I didn't have bills to pay!

Way... Way... to easy...

Granted

You have no bills to pay, because you have nothing. No house, no car, no life/health insurance, no job.

But the good side is, you have no bills anymore.

I wish I was an evil ruler of a mighty kingdom.
