Writing Prompt Challenge- Mabel and the Elephants
Ooh? What’s this? A new feature!?! Yep! It’s probably going to be a regular one, too. For those of you who don’t know, I’m actually an aspiring author. I’ve got a handful of stories in various stages, but when I try to work on them, I just get horrendous writer’s block. My good friend and fellow blogger got me into listening to a podcast called Writing Excuses. It’s fantastic, and I highly recommend it. While binge-listening to it earlier in the week to inspire Tress and I both to write more. The idea is that about once a month, we find each other writing prompts to expand on. It’d hopefully get us both writing more and give us more blog posts to keep up on. I’m not sure if Tress is going to post hers to her blog or not, but you can e-stalk her here.
So, she gave me my first prompt, and it’s actually from Writing Excuses Season 2, Episode 31. You can check out the podcast here. I make no guarantees this will be good. I didn’t do much in the way of editing because it’s 12:30am right now, and, honestly, I just don’t care.
Prompt: An Author comes up with a wacky, crazy gimmick for a book... and then it happens to the author in real life.
