Take the challenge you may actually finish – just sayin’

Thain in Vain

Nowadays, you can’t swing a cat without hitting some sort of challenge. We’re drowning in a Pinterest sea of 30 days to: rock hard abs; totally enlightened meditation; juice yourself skinny; become a travel blogger; craft yourself silly for a month, and on and on.

Join the 13 Week Streak – Summer Flash Fiction Challenge. Starting June 5, we’re stripping ourselves bare and showing the world our writing chops.

Old Bryn’s Prompt Jar #75

Prompt #75 – Someone with an addiction has lost their memories.

Guidelines – The rules for Old Bryn’s prompts are always the same:

500 words. 

That’s it! Simple, but not nessecarily easy. Staying within the limit will force you to focus on the most important elements of the story. Most writers will end up using these prompts as inspiration to get new ideas, or create character sketches. But, if you’re really up for a challenge tell us the whole story; beginning, middle, and end. Aim to think outside the box here. Don’t tell us the most likely story, dig deep.

About the Prompt Jar: Good Ol’ Goody Bryn isn’t really old, but she does have a seemingly never ending jar full of creative writing prompts. I know ’cause I seen it myself. It was a gift to me in fact. A small stout thing with a red cap. Inside are carefully folded, long and thin slips of paper inked with inspiration. It is my pleasure to share them with you now.
