Creativity Contest: The Mysterious Dinner Guest (Closed)

Last week we came across a Treasure Chest and you guys delivered. Please check out in the comments below that entry to see some pretty creative takes on treasure chests in all sorts of backdrops of life. I’m thrilled and honored to get a glimpse into other people’s imaginations and what direction they take with a few words and parameters.

For this week’s prompt, I want you to imagine you received a mysterious letter in the mail asking to prepare an elegant dinner for an unnamed guest. The letter has no return address, but is written on thick paper with one of those wax, emblem seals. The guest is to arrive sharply at six o’clock. Like with last week, the scene and setting are yours. Build up some anticipation, but eventually you need to let your readers know who arrived for dinner and why. Take this and fly, fellow writers. 😊✏️

The rules are below. No winners/losers again this week. We’re focusing on delving into our imaginations and seeing what’s behind that dinner table vase in the next room.

While you’re here, hit subscribe and stick around for awhile. We’d love to have you at Peregrine Arc.

Indie Author Adventures: My First Book Review

A big thank you for my first review on Memory Bound at Amazon. Mr. Swinebottom I think is currently doing a lap around Asia in pure bliss, screaming like a child who got hold of a golden Willy Wonka ticket. A screenshot of the review is below.

Any individual celebrations you want to share? Comment below!

Creativity Contest: We’re Going Treasure Hunting (Closed)

I’m experimenting with these contest things, trying to think of ways to get creativity flowing, imaginations growing and neurotransmitter reward paths triggered. Er, I mean, I want you to have fun. Right? Right!

So this week, I want you to imagine you come across a treasure chest. The setting and circumstances are yours to invent. But you need to tell the reader what’s inside…eventually. Build up a little intensity; spice it with anticipation or season with mystery. Do your thing and we’ll read it. We’re looking forward to what the treasure chest reveals for you.

The rules are below. No winners/losers this week; we’re just swimming in the sea of creativity. Pass the conch shell, would you? I need to sharpen my pencil.

While you’re here, hit subscribe and stick around for awhile. We’d love to have you.

Indie Author Tales: Humor Heard Around the House

Author: “I don’t like being around actors, musicians, anybody on a stage. They’re wonderful, yes, but don’t talk to me, look at me or touch me.”

Saint: “Yes. Don’t break that fourth wall.”

Author: “Yes! Exactly. Well put. Don’t break that barrier between you and me.”

Saint: “You can say, and if you break the fourth wall, my fist will break through it, too.”

Author: “…”

Indie Author Updates: I Give You Poe (You’re Welcome)

In America, we’re in a government shutdown–the longest we’ve experienced in our young nation’s history. With paychecks halted, FBI workers are lining up next to White House employees to get food distributions at Food Banks. Somebody pinch me. Surely this is fake news, right? No, you insist, it’s not? Well then. Double irony for $600, Alex, and pass the potatoes. This sure is a surreal way to bring in 2019. And sad.
