Okay this is a prompt, the screen flickers, the rectangle blinks, the prompt. Ok, so the prompt is, class, class fades out, shot of outer space zooming through outer space, horsehead nebula, and then a shot of me at the keyboard, or you or whatever.

The Prompt: Why would you vote for Ralph Nader? Assume, for this prompt, that you are a US citizen, registered to vote(if note then you are going to), and that you are trying to write an explanation of why you are going to Vote Nader amidst a seeming political tide of general apathy, defeatist dualism(Bush/Kerry), corporate control, loser mindsets, big egos who'll shout you down for voting Nader, or saying you're going to vote Nader, the millions who lie that a vote for Nader is not a vote for Nader, and whatever other negatives come to mind. Of course, you're bringing the positive side, that's for you to figure out. The piece can either be in the form of an essay, a narrative, an interview, an email, or some mixture of these. And the content can take the form of your struggle, or whatever, to try and explain your reason(s) for supporting Nader, a segue of journey to and then arrival, or simply the actual why itself.

Good luck!

"The hallway was silent..." Jon was trying to think of a cool sentence to give as a writing prompt for an online writing community. He had been saying things on and off for the past few minutes, I had been writing them down and crossing out words here and there to make a new sentence from ten or so separate sentences.

wow! i'm making a post lmao, only because tay reminded me that this community EXISTS. okay so i have a prompt...

i've been developing an idea for a new story that has alot of circus elements... so the prompt is this... write a prose piece that is no longer than 500 words that has something to do with the circus! mmkay? so do that and post em! cause i'd love to read em. if you don't wanna do it, that's cool, but as tay says... crappy/sucky/shitty/anything writing is better than no writing at all!

Errrrmmmm, I know I'm "breaking" the community rules by making a "POINTLESS" post, but I was ONLY wondering if this place was still alive :-/

I's got a work in progress... It's for MY own prompt. *Shrug* Me want more prompts though. PROMPT AWAY PLEASE! :)

So, a prompt. Well, I'd like to see something that explores the fascination of bad boys or girls, without romanticising them. Heh. That'll be hard.

At first, I was going to join just to lurk, but then I saw silverdwagon's prompt, and thought I'd take a shot.

What I came up with was a short story without a name. I'm anxious to see what everyone else posts!

prompt time!

Write about a man who has just committed murder. Only one restriction.. you can't say what he did (murder-wise).

whee. go at it :) hope y'all get some good ones for this.

ETA: Was asked if you could IMPLY what the man did, and well, you could. But I would think it would be more interesting if you had no idea what the man did, so you're left wondering.
