#AmWriting (Response to 12)

This one was a bit of fun for me. I’ve been trying to be more active on Twitter recently (and am now a borderline stalker of the #tenqueries and #amwriting posts, hence the title) and watching authors participate in the Twitter Fiction Festival was very enjoyable. It’s challenging to imagine experiencing something first-hand by a […]

Skin Deep (Response to 9)

I like tattoos. A lot. If I were less of a chicken, I’d have quite a few more than I do now. Alas, I shall let young Kasey live the excessively inked life for me until I decide to expand my own collection! As a side note, I’ll be posting a new prompt tomorrow, but […]

The Girl with the Flower (Response to 8)

This week, things are a bit different. I completed the prompt, but I did so using a character I’m currently working into a novel. Because I’m a paranoid little thing, her story is going to need to stay private for now… I normally try not to do this considering I really enjoy being about to […]

My Own Little World (Response to 7)

Well, I ended up with something slightly different this week. I’ve been thinking a lot about the setting of a story I’m working on, so I tried drawing out the map for it. A picture of the first draft is below in all it’s non-artistic glory, but my main goal is to complete a 3D […]

Hail to the Queens (Response to 6)

I tried, I really did, but beavers in space just wouldn’t happen for me this round. Instead, I found myself writing about creatures that have long fascinated me: ants. One thing I find particularly interesting about ant colonies is that they are matriarchal. Having been raised in a patriarchy, I enjoy thinking about what the […]

Here there be Pirates! (Response to 5)

And here it is! My response to prompt number 5 and it’s no joke! Here there be pirates 😉 Now that Camp NaNoWriMo has started, I hope you’re all working on your April projects! All it takes is one month and you can turn an idea into a full-length novel! Give it a shot if […]

Pathways (Response to 4)

The photo I used for the fourth prompt is one that I’ve been thinking about often as I write one of my projects (Pathways is the chapter in which the following excerpt appears). It’s a fantasy story with which I’ve been toying when I need a break from my usual Sci-Fi. So far, I like […]

The Travel Writer (Response to 3)

Hope everyone is enjoying Spring Break! SXSW is going on in my neck of the woods, which would be amazing to attend, but the sheer number of people in attendance (and of course the price tag) have convinced me to enjoy a quiet week close to home. I will say, though, that I envy those […]

Lord of the Flame (Response to 2)

Alrighty! Here’s a bit of what I wrote (as inspired by last week’s photo): The man twirled the flame around his forefinger, reveling in the warmth. The flame rolled down into his palm where it spread the width of his hand, then curled back into a vibrant ball. His expression was sour as he watched […]

Sweet Dreams (Response to 1)

As promised, here’s a snippet of what I did with the previous prompt! New prompt should be up later today. Enjoy! “Good luck,” a voice whispered from the darkness. Ana’s eyes flew open and her head whipped around, but the room was empty. The voice had been so close against her ear she’d felt his […]
