Writing Prompts – Creative Copy Challenge #135Posted: April 14, 2011
Sherry Jones, author of the “The Jewel of Medina” and “The Sword of Medina” (controversial novels about the youngest wife of the Prophet Muhammad), and “Four Sisters, All Queens,” scheduled for spring/summer 2012 by Simon and Schuster/Gallery, picked the words today. Show her what we do twice each week.
Writing prompts cure writer’s block. Take the 10 random words below and, in the comments, crush writer’s block by creating a cohesive, creative short story tying them together! And remember: after (if) you finish, highlight your words and click the bold button to make them stand out and help you determine if you forgot any words. (If you’ve missed previous writing prompts, do those too.)
- Serendipity – The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
- Indigo – a blue dye; a shrub
- Alabaster – a fine-grained usually white, opaque, or translucent variety of gypsum used for statues, vases, etc.
NOTE: Don’t copy and paste from MS Word. Use a program like notepad that removes formatting or just type in the comment field itself. Also, finish your submission, THEN bold the words. Thanks. (And don’t forget to tweet this and share it with your friends.)
