My name is Hope, and I think writing prompts are for sissies.

I’m kidding.  Kind of.

I’ve always been a fan of writing prompts, but I’ve come to discover they don’t truly challenge me.  They’re good medicine for writer’s block, but they don’t make me a better writer.

Years ago, I had a creative writing teacher who gave us this prompt for our daily journals:  write a story consisting entirely of one-syllable words.  Not only did I have fun writing it, but it made me work–hard–to write a simple short story.

Impossible Words is the challenge I’ve presented to myself.  In each post, I will give myself an extreme writing prompt, one that will make me throw my pens across the room and smash my keyboard with my fists.  The stories will be 500 words or less, and I invite everyone who visits to respond to my posts with the stories they concoct using these prompts.

The challenge is ON!  😀

(Oh, yeah:  I also write other stuff.  “Normal” stuff.  To see my author website, click here.)
