Author Blog Challenge – Writing Prompt #6

Day 3 of the Author Blog Challenge saw first-time posts from a few participants. Hats off to those who got caught up on all three days! Lots of great discussions about favorite authors and writing mentors. Check out our Day 3 Recap if you’d like to see excerpts from a few of them.


If you’d like to see ALL the writing prompts that have been released to date, please visit the PROMPTS page.


The WINNER for yesterday’s giveaway is Nikki Morgan. Congrats! You’ve won a copy of the Write | Market | Design eBook, Handwriting Analysis Made Easy. This book will teach you the fundamentals of what your keystrokes, letter size and shape, slant, and spacing can indicate about your personality. It’s amazingly accurate! Retails for $9.95.

The GIVEAWAY for today is the eBook, The Little Mongrel – Free to a Good Home!, donated by Merlene Fawdry. This is the true story of Merlene, relinquished at birth to become the fourth child adopted into a family already in a crisis of dysfunction. She lives with her family in an affluent suburb, where the secrets of the family are hidden behind a veneer of respectability and within the attic bedroom she shares with a growing family of adopted and fostered siblings, a colony of bush rats, and the eerie spectres of her troubled mind.


Onward we go with the 6th writing prompt of the challenge…

Describe how the idea for your book first came to you. Where were you? Who was the first person you told? How did they respond?

Writing Prompt #5:

Who is your favorite literary character? With which literary character do you most relate?

Writing Prompt #4:

How do the things you read impact your writing? What do you love to read? What do you avoid reading at all costs? How would your writing change if you read more of the things you typically avoid?

Let the blogging continue!
