What's New?


Stop by the Three Things section to see how my writerly friends and I can take the same three prompts in wildly different directions.


The rules are simple: each writer contributes short prompts consisting of simple words or phrases, like "freshly fallen snow," or "the perfect cup of tea," or "methodical evisceration." Prompts are randomly chosen by a computer randomizer in totally random fashion. Participating authors have one week to incorporate the (random) prompts into a short story of no more than 1,000 words. And a good time is had by all.
