Writing Prompts for Settings: April 2017

Writing Prompts for Settings

We’re back with new writing prompts! Sorry about last week. A wee virus snuck onto our computer and wouldn’t let us use our internet browser. Thankfully, with the advice of a more tech savvy friend, the little booger was taken care of and we’re back in business! This week, we offer three story starters that take care of the settings for you. Don’t forget to share your stories and artwork with us. We’ll be happy to share your hard work right here at the Hideaway!

As for what else I’m up to, the first draft is still taking up most of my writing time. And, honestly, I need to be devoting more time to that writing time. I fell out of my routine and I’m struggling to get it back together. Unless, by some miracle, I can write nearly five chapters today, the first draft for the Brix & Gregor novel will not be completed by the end of April. But the end is near. I said I wouldn’t do any flash fictions until it was done, but I will do my best to get a new segment of Saving Time ready by Friday. To be honest, I feel like the workplace inspired satire has kinda gotten away from me. Part of me just wants to drop it off as it is and move onto something more enjoyable to write, but I’ll try to pull together some kind of ending for Bobby.
