Today, we're doing something a little different! This is the newest newsletter prompt writing game. So, play along with some other authors, have fun with any headline that catches your eye, and get a link to your story featured in the site newsletter! 

 

HEADLINE PROMPT GAME

Happy Gay Pride Month, everyone! How are you celebrating? Does your city do a parade? Special event weekends? Ban celebrations? *boo hiss* Or are you not quite ready for the crowds? Well, how about GA celebrates together with a new game?

Very loose rules with this game, just have some fun with it. You're going to google "Gay Pride" and then click on the (News) option. Then DON'T click on the results! All you're going to do is use one of the headlines that catches your eye to create a scenario and write from there. Any length, any genre is fine, but the theme is sort of obvious, lol. You can share your headline in the game topic, talk about your story/writing as you go along, but don't do a full reveal to anyone but your editing team so we can all enjoy them later!

Fine print: Deadline is June 28th. Post story/chapter unpublished with no date. Send link to Cia via PM. Story release will happen with July 1st newsletter.

I've found a headline and have an idea for a response.  Now to find time to actually write it...

Oh.. cool. I'll have to squeeze this in. I did see it in the newsletter, and then promptly forgot about it. Have my headline and am writing it.

@northie @Mikiesboy @Valkyrie Remember, it can be any length! A scene or a snippet or even just a caption paragraph article lead in... the goal is to have fun with and be original. You don't have to something long or too involved. :)
