As always, first things first – if you haven’t read the previous entries(parts one, two, and three), be sure to do so before tackling this week’s prompt! Also, take a moment to congratulate our most recent winner, Stephanie Ayers. Keep in mind, you have to pick up where she left off.
On to the prompt!
This month seems to have flown by. For me, a big part of time flying was how busy I feel like I’ve been, between real-life work and being much more active on here. There’s also prep/mild dread for NaNoWriMo that’s made the last couple of weeks seem to come and go in the blink of an eye. In keeping with the idea that there aren’t enough hours in the day, this week’s prompt is to write a fleeting moment. Interpret this however you wish – maybe the character is looking back on a particularly brief moment that marked them, or experiencing the feeling of not having enough time do something they really want to accomplish. It’s entirely up to you!
Somewhat of a side note: Since we’re nearing the end of this particular story, I’m opening up to title ideas! I’ve always been absolutely dreadful at coming up with decent titles (see Reckoning), so how about you guys (readers and writers) suggest some titles for the piece? After we have a few suggestions rounded up, I’ll throw up a poll and we’ll vote on our favorite! This will probably be once we have the last installment.
Remember, continue last week’s story, keep it under 400 words, and submit your response in the comment section below. Don’t forget to include your twitter handles and/or other social media links for promotion! Submissions close Wednesday at 11:59PM EST– tell your friends!
Questions, suggestions? Check out the rules in more detail and/or drop me a line!
As always, think happy thoughts!
