Creative Wednesday - A Writing Prompt

Welcome to our Creative Wednesday Writing Prompt!

It's a chance for you to get those creative juices going and share that creativity with fellow bloggers. And the co-bloggers joining me are - Carrie K Sorensen at Chasing Revery and Jane Bussey at A Writer's Muses!

Last week was a lot of fun...feel free to check out my post on the "creepy circus" I created. Carrie created a very good rendition of the prompt last week with her post called, "Promising Silence." And I was so pleased to see someone new join in the fun - Rhonda over at MyGr8Reads wrote story, entitled, "A Bad Dream." 

So, here are the rules:

1) There will be one photo, and five words - both of those elements must be a feature in the brief story you create.
2) There is also a 500 word maximum.
3) You have until the next Wednesday to create your post.
4) When you have finished your post, come back here and link up below and let me (or whoever your blog host is) know in the comments that you have done so!
5) I was going to tell you to not take this too seriously, but reconsidered it because I know full well asking writers to write something means that they will take it seriously. So, take it seriously, but don't fret/panic/pass out/hyperventalate/lose sleep/run in fear over it.

So, get those creative juices flowing and once you have your story together, post your link below!


  1. I had a little late night go. I don't write fiction often, I'm a little rusty. I went over 500 by a little bit and I just couldn't fit in diving board and figured if I left it for tomorrow I would probably not get around to posting it. The photo reminds me of the beaches here in my part of Australia. Thanks for posting such an inspiring photo.
    PS - Photo prompts are my favorite :)

  2. Oh I'm so glad you took part!! Thank you so much! I"m checking out your post now!!

  3. Now it's your turn :) Looking forward to your entry!

    1. Thanks! I just finished it! :) I'll have it posted tomorrow afternoon! It actually took me longer than I expected!

  4. Hi Nicole, I wrote up a quick entry the other day, but forgot to post a comment letting you know that I did so. I ended up a handful of words over 500, but with a couple of minor edits I cut it down to exactly 500. I've got a few other examples of my fiction on my blog, The Why, the How, and the What If.

    1. Thanks George! It's so nice to see this blog hop growing! I'm so glad!! And I just checked out your response and I loved it!! Exciting!


I love comments! The good, the bad, and the ugly, so tell me what you have to say! And if you like what you read (or at least find yourself entertained), follow my blog to read more. Although I'm not always able to respond to comments immediately, I appreciate every one of them.
