Dog story – a writing prompt from Alex

(p.s. 3 places left on 4 week September creative writing group in Bath Library on Thursday mornings. Email to book)

Write a story which includes a dog. Give it a beginning, middle and end but keep the story to a time span of a few hours. Remember to include all the senses. And, give the story an imaginative title (for practice!)

Writing challenge – leap into writing

Sometimes we need a challenge to get writing – Here is mine.

For the next seven days, come up with one idea a day for a short story or a novel.

Are you sitting comfortably? Find a notebook and pen. Put on some music, close your eyes and let an idea drift into your mind. Sit there until an idea comes, it doesn’t have to be brilliant, any idea will do. Write a sentence describing it and then put your notebook away.

At the end of the week choose one of the sentences and give it a title. Focus on it and write a first short story draft or a rough synopsis for a novel. Keep the other ideas for another day.
