Hello. Here are your prompts for this week. Yes, folks. These sheets will be Fridays only from now on. Sorry about that but my writing’s taking over and I hope to have news about that in between these posts and the lovely author assistant/editor/lady Friday(!) Caroline Vincent (who pretties these sheets before they go live) will be posting Word Count Wednesdays so you can let us know how your writing’s been going over the previous week. I aim for 300 words a day which is an astounding 109,500 words a year and we have an extra day in a couple of weeks so, starting today, you could have a mahoosive 109,800 words (or more) by Valentine’s Day 2021!
These posts will still include the text versions together with explanations of any individual pictures so that anyone unable to see the picture and prompts will be able to read the text or have to text read to them. It also means you can copy and paste the text should you wish to use it for your own writing.
Make of them what you will and let me know how you get on in the comments section below (or on Facebook/ Twitter). NB. just give us a summary unless you want to share the whole piece but if you post the actual writing, it’s deemed as published and you’ll be limiting where you can send it. So here goes…
