This writing workshop hop is for anyone interested in writing fiction, veteran or first-timer!
This week, I’m mixing it up a little. We’ll return to experimenting with points of view. But the prompt this week is:
Write about a possession that holds special meaning for you.
The objective of this prompt is to encourage you to use descriptive details in your writing; the reader needs to be able to visualize this object. But you also must write about why this possession is so important to you. Which will force you to expand your writing beyond the descriptive, into the emotional connection. So in writing about this object, you may wind up writing about a particular moment related to the object. Even a full scene.
If you don’t have an actual object dear to you, well, then just make it up! Make up something about that chipped old mug you’ve had on your kitchen shelf for ten years!
Remember too: You do not have to follow a prompt to link up. Your post just must be a fictional moment or scene. It could be taken from a longer work in progress.
1). Not too long but not too short – try for a scene or fully developed moment.
2). Critique at least four other posts – comment first on what works, then how it might be reworked.
3). Reciprocate by critiquing those bloggers who do comment.
4). Important: Preface your post with “Sandra’s Writers Workshop Hop” linked back to my (new WP!) blog. Yes, to advertise Moi, but also to clarify your post is up for critique – a good thoughtful paragraph of critique as your “comment.”
5). Grab it from my sidebar to remember to come back and post!
6). You can grab this hop and post it on your own blog so we can gain more submissions
