Topic: Writing About The Week After The Day After Tomorrow
- A Writing Prompt for the History Books We Will All Be In Someday -
Bring all your joys or trepidations, apocalyptic visions or utopian tomorrows, or any fictionalized, quasi-fictionalized,
post-Normal, real or imagined conversations or scenarios to life in 500-600 words
and share it a week from the day after tomorrow
with other authors who are not going to let this historical opportunity slip by undocumented.
These next few days are going to be a daze, so why not harness some of the upcoming frantic frenzy
and put together your take on it? If you don’t feel like you can’t cram all your thoughts into 500-600 words
then get creative with your word associations and turn it into some free verse poetry!
If you end up with a longer piece, you can read part of it.
Each author will have 15-20 minutes total to read AND for discussion so that everyone’s work can be heard.
Heck, WSN might even decide to publish our own chapbook of takes on the subject next year!
Think of it as a creative (or perhaps therapeutic) way to deal with some or all of the emotions
you experience, or that you observe, in the next 10 days! Our writing prompt discussions
have been a lot of fun in the past, so take a deep breath (maybe two or three actually)
and put pen to paper, or fingertips to keyboard and see what you come up with.
No doubt we will all make some surprising discoveries!
