Hey! I'd like to kick off a little on-going excercise for us writers in the crowd. Skip to prompt.
What's a writing prompt?
It's an excercise to get the creative juices flowing, useful to overcome writer's block, and hopefully to come up with interesting, deep, entertaining, or otherwise nonsensical reading material!
It needn't adhere to any writing standard though.... this is not the place for grammatical critique. See a future post by Spiegro on proper Technical Writing etiquette.
For now, throw etiquette out the window. But not Spiegro. He's cool.
The key is to take the prompt and simply write freely without filtering yourself -- unless you want to filter yourself, then that's cool too.
Personally, I enjoy using an occasional f-bomb or two in my writing, so please do not take offense if it appears in a future prompt. Or after this sentence.
Of course, you shouldn't post anything that may haunt you later in life. That's on you.
Simply respond to the writing prompt with your comment. Or, if you're so inclined, create a blog post and tag it with "writing prompt #1". It's your world. Color outside the lines.
And so it begins.
Write 10 sentences or less (if more, you got maybe a little too free!) from the point of view of a clean sock that was just mistakenly placed in the hamper. Be the sock.
If you're scratching your head, I promise, these prompts will get better over time. I found this one, and thought it would be a good ice-breaker! Please share your writing in response to this prompt, if you dare. Enjoy!
