March's Let's Write Together
Prompt of the Month
We just had our kick off call for March’s edition of The Great Substack Prompt Celebration. We had a great time and heard some amazing first draft fiction. Thank you to all of the writer who attended and participated!
If you missed the post with all the information and instructions you can read it via the link below. Don’t worry you can still participate. Grab your laptop or pen and paper and join the fun!
This month we used one of Nicole’s favorite writing prompt tools, The Storymatic cards created by Brian Mooney. Check out Storymatic Studios (https://thestorymatic.com)
to see how you can get your own set of cards!
The rules are simple:
Pick two gold cards to create a character
Pick two copper cards to lead you into story
Here are the cards we selected
Gold Character Cards
The first two cards selected were as follows
This means you are to write about a slacker who steals cats!
Copper Story Cards
The next two cards selected were
This means your story should include something beautiful but so useless and there should be something wrong with the water at some point in your story.
Now it’s time to write, or polish the piece you began in the Writing Prompt Party earlier tonight. Then, when the discussion thread is posted next Thursday post it on your Substack page and put the link in the comments; If the story doesn’t go with what you typically post you can leave a link to a view only Google doc and post it in the comments. Stories should be 1,000 words or less.
Once you share your stories, the community will start reading, and we’ll be looking for the stories that impress us most!
