Writing Prompt Challenge

Approaches to Storycraft

Hey there, Writers!

Swinging through with a special announcement! I’m running a writing prompt challenge this week along with my good friend and excellent writer, Mayumi Hirtzel, author of Number Seven and the Life Left Behind.

The purpose of this challenge is to encourage you to write without fear or pressure to perform. To simply write because you love to write.

But Mayumi and I also want to sweeten the deal with a prize!

The challenge  will run from Tuesday May 26, 2020 to Monday June 1, 2020.  Mayumi came up with two writing prompt options (below). You can submit as many pieces as you like (each one no longer than 250 words) and submit  to any of the following sites:

Here–in the comment section below

FACEBOOK (biz page)

TEAM WRITER (my free writing group)


Winners will be drawn randomly—so there is no need to worry about quality of your writing. This is all about encouraging you to write anything, without the pressure of performance. To enjoy the process and the journey!

Winners will be announced on June 2, 2020 through a live name-pulling-out-of-the-hat on IG and FB. I’ll also contact winners directly.

Prizes—each winner will receive 30 minutes of coaching or editing from me. Depending on the needs of each winner, this could take place via Zoom, a phone call, or an email exchange.

There are two prompts that you can choose from. Please submit pieces no longer than 250 words. You may title your submission if you like. You can also enter as many times as you like, using either or both of the prompts!

Ready for the prompts…?

Full sentence prompt: “You’ll never lose if you don’t play. But you’ll never win, either.”

One-word prompt: Jackpot!

You can submit your piece in the comment section below, or at any of the social media links I provided above. Any questions? Just ask below!

Have a writerly day!

Give me your thoughts. Or your pizza. I'm not picky.
