WRITING PROMPT: Monday Matchup #14
Welcome to 2011! Feel free to take the following prompt home or post a
response (500 words or fewer, funny, sad or stirring) in the Comments section below.
By posting, you’ll be automatically entered in our
occasional around-the-office swag drawings (we’ll draw for the holiday prompts Wednesday).
you’re having trouble with the
captcha code sticking, e-mail your piece and the prompt to me at
firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Promptly” in the subject line, and I’ll
make sure it gets up.
Write a story involving a game of truth or dare, your favorite food, and a movie theater.
Also, what are you and your writing doing Jan. 21-23? Join us in New York for the Writer’s Digest Conference.
We always have a blast, and it can be a great move for your craft and
career (at one of our recent events, agents Janet Reid and Andrea Hurst
signed clients, and went on to negotiate six-figure deals for them). On
tap this year:
- Our signature agent pitch slam, featuring at least 57 agents representing a variety of genres and styles
- Sessions on the future of publishing, craft, platform, social media, freelancing and much, much more
- Panels and Q&As with agents and other pros
- Our off-site poetry slam in SoHo.
