Prompt based story-line for a contest with alternate-day prompts over a fortnight.
This contest is run by Annette and will run for a fortnight beginning on the 15th of May with the first prompt. We are supposed to knit together a story based on the seven prompts sent by her ... one every other day. |
Here is the link to the contest:
Prompt 1: It has to use/involve the number two. In any way shape or form. Think couple, twins, etc, be creative. Also, mention cherry and stairs.
Word Count: 415; Total WC: 415
Prompt 2: Use the words castle, princess, knight and earthquake. But they may NOT be used within the same context, meaning the knight can not rescue the princess from the castle during the earthquake.
Word Count: 831; Total WC: 1246
Prompt 3: Have your main character make a discovery. Add a new character to the story who is not linked to the discovery. The new character can be a guest player for this chapter only, or stay around. Your choice. Have whatever the discovery is in bold and the first time the new character shows up the name in bold.

Prompt 4: Use the word half in dialog. Have something or somebody be of medium size. Use the word middle in reference to a location. Show your character or characters eating their favorite dessert. Remember to make the prompt words bold and the name of the dessert too.

Prompt 6: Tell me about a love interest your main character has or had, and what made or makes that person special to your character. For those who write with characters that are too young for love interests, tell me about a beloved pet they had or have.
