Prompt Me Series

Prompt Me #8

Did you know that I have a writing prompts ebook available from Amazon? Prompt Me is the basis of this series and will be just 99p for the duration.

This series will run for 10 weeks. Each week, I take a different prompt from the book and expand on it.

You can join in too. Whether it be a paragraph or a short story, follow me in getting creative, tag me to let me know, and I will feature a snippet of your interpretation on Writerly Bookish Stuff and send my readers your way.

If you are just here to read and not partake, that’s great too. Thank you for stopping by.


Prompt:

“Please, tell me you did not just polish the silver with my grandfather’s ashes?”

Interpretation:

“I’ve apologised, what more do you want?”

“My grandfather’s ashes! I can’t believe you polished the silver with my grandfather’s ashes. What are you, some Victorian house-maid?” She shakes her head and growls in her throat. “You’re a total idiot!”

“Hey, now there is no need for that. I said I am sorry, but maybe next time, don’t keep your grandfather in a coffee tin on the hearth.” She looks about to explode. I hold my hands up and make my way to the door. “Just saying.”


Remember, if you are joining in with this series, let me know in the comments and tag me in your posts. Whether they be blog or social media, let me have a read of your interpretation. It can be anything from just a paragraph to a short story.

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

As I type this it is my daughter’s half term holiday from school. I’m thinking forward to next week’s Teaser Tuesday post and am a little worried that I won’t have anything to share. It’s hard to write when both my kids are home, but I shall try. I guess this is a little warning for you not to expect too much next week.

However, I have a little something for you this week…

As you can tell, my characters are in a spot of bother. Avid readers of my books will be like, ‘your characters are always in a spot of bother!’


I hope you pop by tomorrow for Prompt Me #8.

Prompt:

“Why are you hiding behind my curtains?”

“Because under the bed is taken?”

“Excuse me? How many of you are there?”

My Interpretation:

The girl of about eight steps out from behind the curtains, and two boys of similar age slide out from under my bed.

“We heard that you could help us… that you have helped others,” she mumbles.

Their rags barely pass as clothes, and each is clearly branded on the back of the neck. These may be the sorriest bunch yet.

The girl mothers the two boys, wrapping her thin arms around the both of them. They makes noises of appreciation. There’s a strong possibility they are mute. If they were born in the System, no one would have bothered teaching them to speak.

“Who sent you here?”

“Miss Krista,” the girl replies. “She said you help get System kids on pods to the ‘good place’.

Damn you, Krista. That woman is going to be the death of both of us.

The girl removes an old device called a cell phone from her raggy skirt and hands it to me. There is only one number stored. I ring it without hesitation.

“One last time, I promise,” Krista says before I can speak. “Don’t bother umming and ahhing, we both know you’re doing this. You’re a good man, Tyler.”

I chuckle down the handset. Damn, it’s good to hear her voice. “Not good enough to marry, though.”

“Maybe one day when all these kids are free.”

What she is asking me to do is not a patch on the bravery Krista shows day in and day out helping the System kids. If she is caught, she will be executed without trial.

“You get them to me, and I’ll get them to the ‘good place’.”


Remember, if you are joining in with this series, let me know in the comments and tag me in your posts. Whether they be blog or social media, let me have a read of your interpretation. It can be anything from just a paragraph to a short story.

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

I may not have been as productive in regards to my WIP this week, but I’m still liking the direction the narrative is headed.

I did a lot of blog planning and scheduling this week, so now that’s under my belt, my sole attention is back on the writing.

Here is today’s teaser for you.

This one still makes me chuckle. I suppose it has to be read in context, and in truth, everything about this book makes me chuckle. That’s a good sign, right?


I hope you’ll join me tomorrow for Prompt Me #7.

Have Your Say: What Blog Series Do You want To See?

Guess what? I’m already planning my third blog series of the year. I’m only half way through posting the first series, Prompt Me, but I am a person who likes to prep and schedule ahead of time.

I have a few ideas that I’m batting around, but it occurred to me that the best people to ask about what content they want to see are my followers.

Is there a specific post you like to see on my blog i.e. my writing exercise posts, or more bookish posts. Do you enjoy more posts about my own books, or writerly tip shares?

Get in touch and let me know. I would love to tailor my posts accordingly.
