Writing Promt:
Look around the room. Let your eyes wander until they settle on something. Now write. It is amazing what can come from simple everyday objects.

32 members means that at least one should be writing to these prompts. So get writing. =)

Prompt #2 [Dec. 31st, 2007|02:48 am]
under_a_spell
Somehow incorporate at least 4 of the following things in your next story: a monkey, a star, a mirror, belly button lint, the kitchen sink, dreidels, keys, snow, white t-shirt, and a lightbulb.



Have fun with this one. =) A real challenge would be if someone incorporated ALL of the objects.

Favorite Genre to write:
Romance, fantasy, adventure, and a few other things, be it Original or Fanfic

Favorite Author:
Totally embarrassed to say this, but I love Christine Feehan. *hides*

Again, embarrassed to say this, but I like all things Harlequin. Not exactly deep reading, but it's good for a relaxing day.

Have you ever been published?
Nope. I will be, eventually. I hope.

An inspirational kick in the rear. Or at least, something to get me motivated. Inspiration's nearly always there, but the motivation goes sometimes.

superherogirl
[Current Mood |sleepy]

Name: Lucy Fag Hag :)
Favorite Genre to write: Comedy and Fantasy all the way baby. I've tried writing angst filled stories, but alas I end up angsting along with them. So I rather do comedy. Especially in fanfiction. Putting your fave character in rather interesting predicaments is the best thing in the world. :D Next to strawberry cheesecake and bunnies of course.
Favorite Author: Sad to say I don't have a favorite per se, but as cliche as it sounds J.K Rowling has won my heart over and over. I also really enjoy Gregory Maguire.
Favorite Books: Harry Potter series, Both Sides of Time, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, Through the looking glass... ugh there are too many to name. There was one book in particular that made such an incredible impact on me, but sadly and ironically I don't remember which it was. :(
Have you ever been published? Nope. I would love to one day though.
What would you like to see happen here? Anything that'll keep the community active! I found this place by being nosey and looking through [info]piratesenshi's userinfo, sorry for doing so by the way sweetie. *embarrassed* Can't help being a nosey hispanic. *taps her nose* But regardless, I can't wait to see posts with prompts! :D I always have such difficulty getting one idea to manifest, or I have trouble controlling all plot bunnies in general. Oh the horror. D:

Right now I have to fix up my writing-- rather I like to call it my smut journal. If anyone is interested it's [info]cheesecat. I have yet to transfer most of my GJ entries on to it, but I will after New Year's. And if you all want plot bunnies... you should all check out THIS post. :D Well, okay there are no plot bunnies, but I thought I'd share pictures of my real bunnies. :D Hope some won't consider it too much spam. >.>; *hides just in case*

tyraarane
Name: Tyraa Rane
Favorite Genre to write: Fantasy. Also fanfiction.
Favorite Author: ...Oh boy. I read quite a bit in varying genres, so it's hard for me to pin down favorite authors. Off the top of my head, I think: R.A. Salvatore, Jeff Smith, Ray Bradbury, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Leo Tolstoy.
Favorite Books: Again, I have issues chosing favorites...in no particular order: Lord of the Rings, Fahrenheit 451, Anna Karenina, Things Fall Apart, In the Time of the Butterflies, Bone (the complete series), and the first DemonWars trilogy.
Have you ever been published? Just in various campus publications.
What would you like to see happen here? Like others have said, interesting and varied prompts--anything that'll keep my ADHD plot bunnies from getting bored and wandering off, as they so often tend to do.
