Workshop Day

Daily Prompt

WN #35: Story Starter

You take a sip from your drink and feel different. That may be because your torso has an extra arm protruding from it. Another sip, another arm. Then a wing. What happens if you finish the drink?
(from Reader’s Digest writing prompts)

Free write for five minutes.

Let’s check out the latest edition of our chain story!

While I am conferencing with students individually, these are your options:

* work on writing your own movie script (write something entirely new or take a piece you’ve already written and convert it)

* work on a post for your blog

* read a great book

* help a fellow writer with his/her writing

* remember your third graded blog post is due this Friday.

Okay, happy writing/reading!

  1. In addition to the given prompt:

    Curiosity flooded all of your senses, the urge to complete this strange beverage hanging on your weight. You become significantly heavier upon sipping the contents from your cup again and another leads to your second wing sprouting and stretching itself to boast gracefully of its beauty in comparison to the first. A faint, ghostly smile crosses your lips and it is decided that your goal is to finish this drink of odd wonders. Greedily does your tongue capture its flavor of sweet mystery, throat expanding as the liquid races down to the inside. The drink is now completed in a hurry, eager and rather impatient to have found out the further affects. Unfortunately, to your dismay and surprise, nothing more changes about you. Everything that you’ve developed has drifted away from your body, leaving you a mere mortal once again. Perhaps the beverage is offended by greed.
