Mel’s Midweek Writing Menagerie #4

Welcome to my weekly writing prompt series. The rules of the challenge are simple. I’ve provided two options below, and there’s a handy link-up button at the end of the post, so you can upload your contribution and share it with others. If you prefer to use the pingback method, I’ll check out each link I receive. Here is the hashtag, should you wish to use it #MelsWritingMenagerie.

But before we get to the prompts, I wanted to draw your attention to the entry by R. Todd who contributed last week:

“HEY!” She yelled trying to avoid the onslaught.

All entries are shared over at Featured Fiction.

So, on to the next set of prompts. Grab the badge and write a post based on either of the following options:

Mel's Midweek Writing Menagerie

Option 1: Sentence Starter –

It wasn’t supposed to end like this.

This sentence (thanks, Rose), can appear anywhere in the story. The maximum word count is 1,000 words. The genre can be any of your choosing; either factual or fiction based. You may use art to interpret the sentence, or poetry if you wish.

Option 2: Fanfiction 

Write an alternative ending to one of your favourite films or television shows.

Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by

    1. Thanks, Jacqui. I enjoy taking part in prompts, I must admit. But I’m always a little reluctant to take part when I create the prompt – it just feels weird! When someday comes, I hope you enjoy 😉

  1. Your new photo is stunning! I love your hair short! I will have to get busy this week and jump in! ❤

I'd love to hear from you.
