Weekly Prompt Subscription


For years, I have given my students prompts to help them generate new fiction. The prompts inspire the students to work on a specific task, take creative risks, and explore different elements of fiction writing. Here are some sample prompts I’ve created over the years:

• Start a story whose first sentence is, “My mother died fifteen years ago, but there she was standing in front of the hotel.”

• Write something in which you explore a stereotype.

• Invent a character who predicts the future for a living: a tarot reader, a fortune teller, an astrologer, etc. Start a new story that begins with this character predicting the future of someone who has paid for this service. 

I am now offering a subscription service. Every Friday, I will send out an original prompt to subscribers. You may use these prompts to take off in whatever creative direction you'd like. You may use them as weekly exercises. You may try creating pieces of flash fiction from them or even short stories. You may use the prompts to delve into longer works.

Above all, I hope the weekly prompts will help you enjoy writing fiction.

The service is $9.95 a month.

See you on Fridays.

My best,

3How do subscription billing cycles work?
PayPal attempts to collect recurring payments from subscribers on the day after the previous billing cycle or trial period ends. Billing cycles will be monthly.

Recurring payments are collected on the same day of the month. If the initial recurring payment falls on the 31st, PayPal eventually adjusts the billing cycle to the 1st of the month. If the initial recurring payment falls on the 29th or 30th, PayPal adjusts the billing cycle to the 1st of the month on the following February.
