Weekly Writing Prompt 5-17-2017

Weekly Writing Prompt 5-17-2017Every week we have the opportunity of choosing one of three or all three to write about from the Weekly Writing Prompt that I get from Writing.com (Aff.)  Weekly Writing Prompt 5-17-2017.


I know that a lot of people do not like to take part in writing prompts for various reasons; too shy to share your work, maybe you think it’s a waste of time, the prompts given aren’t giving you any ideas, etc.


If you are not getting any ideas from the prompts I give, then feel free to go to Writing.com  (Aff.) and grab another one that does inspire you to write.  You are still welcome to post the story in the comments section but just let us know what the prompt was that inspired your story or poem. 


But I do promise if you start participating in writing prompts, you will gain the benefits of practicing different kinds of genres of writing, the fun of creating a short story in just a matter of a few words.


The story from a writing prompt doesn’t have to be long at all.  Sort of like “Flash Fiction, ” comes to mind.  


According to Wikipedia, Flash Fiction is defined as: Flash fiction is fictional work of extreme brevity, including the Six-Word Story, 140-character stories, also known as twitterature, the dribble (50 words), the drabble (100 words), and sudden fiction (750 words).


Something that I didn’t know about is called Twitterature which is also considered Flash Fiction but with more of a challenge since Twitter only gives you 140 characters to work with.


Okay, below in the video are the three Weekly Writing Prompt 5/17/2017 that I have chosen for this week.

Weekly Writing Prompt 5-17-2017:

  1.  Write a short story about a cat city that exists beneath a boardwalk.
  2.  “Pick a card, any card!” The magician held the deck out.  Cautiously, a member of the audience began to pull a card…
  3.  Use 5 cliches in a 20 line poem.


Here are some of the prior Weekly Writing Prompts if you missed them.
