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.

He looked behind him and saw the black sedan pull out of the alley behind them. Panic threatened to well up inside him and he swore.

"They're here. Step on it." His driver gave a fractional nod, and put his foot down, racing towards the airport. Their flight was leaving in ten minutes. They had to get on the plane before they were caught.

She lay against the tree, her book in hand while her hands flipped through the smooth white pages, the words almost seemed to jump at her. She couldn't help but smile, this was her kind of place, out in nature--right under the clear blue sky. What more could one want then a nice tree to get shade under and book that was more then just a friend, but a gateway to another world in another body.

“Lei? What kind of a mechanic is called Lei? Isn’t that Italian?” Roared Roger laughing.


“Wait till you hear the surname then” replied the little boy.


“What is it then? Banana split? Parmezano?”


“No, it’s Chalk”


“Alright then, Mr Lei Chalk, are you going to fix my car or what?”


“Yes dad.”

The man stepped up to the stage, straightening his tie nervously. He walked over to the small table, on which sat a computer. Powerpoint was displayed in the prominent window. Beside the laptop, a small remote was laid. He picked it up and pressed a pair of buttons. The first slide of the presentation was beamed onto the screen by the projector. It was themed in green, with the cartoon crocodile mascot emblazoned below the title. He cleared his throat and began his speech.

The gun was in the hall closet. The phone was on the kitchen wall. But me and the masked man were in the bedroom.

I had to hand it to this SOB, he was a clever to hide in the pea soup fog this night, but mark my words, and mark em good. I'll find him if I have to hunt him to the ends of the earth and then I'll pluck his still beating heart from his chest as my final treasure for this pain he caused me.

Stars like nothing better than to gossip. The moon was not at work that night. They concluded that it was seeing the sun.

I used the sieve to filter coffee from the sink and make a fresh pot. Then picking up the book out the corner of my eye I saw that reading wasn't on the calendar for me today. I sighed and went back to sleep instead.

Next: Strain, Eyes, Foot

No matter how much the queen tried to behave as one of her station should, she just couldn't help it. Today she wondered if she should tell her husband she had exchanged him for a new sword. After giving it a bit of thought she decided that it would be best to lie or she'd create havoc in her kingdom.

The anchor was still lowered and the basket of food still sat on the desk. But the lovers would never have their lunch. They had drown down while diving down below the waves and were now both ghosts.

The cat was wearing a hat and chewing on the broom, when I came into the room. I saw her and she smiled a devilish grin and wink at me, I'm afraid.

Next: Dawn, Curse, Light

I sat on the sofa, so hot from fever that a puddle underneath me made steam rise from the cushion.

Next: Jerk, Love, Stupid

Right before Halloween people begin writing stories about scary witches and zombies. I never understood it, witches aren't scary, some are ugly but never scary and zombies well they don't even exist.

Next: Anger, deafening, and chaos.
