I’m a big fan of writing and of winning stuff, so I was very excited to learn about the 1,000 Prompts, 1,000 Dollars Writing Contest from Build Creative Writing Ideas. Basically, pick a prompt from the 1,000 listed on Bryan’s site and write 500-1,000 words that are the start of a longer work. Then post it on your website. (Perfect timing, since I just started juliegilbertbooks.com!)
In the coming days, look for a reluctant vampire, a bored shopgirl and an untrained magician to make appearances on the blog.
