Prose for Pondering
May 24, 2011
First, my abject and humble apologies for not being able to post this yesterday. Virginia Beach had some horrible storms yesterday, that took out power and internet lines all over the city. My connection was spotty, at best, and I ended up playing online via my cell phone. While fun for me, it didn’t enable me to be able to get the post up last evening. I also got to see a flying trampoline (beats a broom or a falling house anyday), snapping power lines (the sparks are cool, so long as you don’t get too close), and a beautiful 30ft tree completely destroyed (it just missed a neighbor’s house and car). Luckily, all are fine and no serious damage was done.
On to our prose inspiration!
We want to encourage writing and writers. You never know what you are capable of until you stretch yourself. To help you stretch those writing muscles, we’ll present different sources of inspiration: a quote, a lyric, a song, a video, a prompt. Write us a pretty little tale to go with it. We’ll take whatcha got to offer -- a little love, some tart lemons, a pinch of angst, a dash of slash. We’re pretty flexible. About the only thing we don’t want to see is the obvious — rape, incest, pedophilia, bestiality. Obviously vamp and wolf love, though are the exceptions to the rule!
What constitutes a drizzle? Well they're a little longer than a drabble, but not quite a one shot. They are usually between 500-1000 words, give or take a few.
Email us your entries at email@example.com, or if they are a bit longer, throw it on ff.net or your favorite writing site and send us the link.
Entries or links should be received by 11:59 EST Sunday night. We will feature any entries on the next week’s post.
I’ve had this quote sitting in my computer for quite some time. It still speaks to me when I drift across it in my files.
Put that brain in gear and GO! We’ll see you next week!
