Saturday Scribes Writing Prompt: May 1st

Now that the April poetry blitz is over (and what a month it was), we’re going to be dedicating the month of May to creative prose, specifically short fiction. We’re expanding the umbrella of short fiction to include flash fiction, prose-poems, excerpts, and the classic short story. If you’re primarily a poet, this might give you an opportunity to stretch those writing muscles a bit. If you’d prefer to stick to poetry, that’s okay too; you can still feel free to play with the prompts each week, and post links to your latest creative endeavour. Without further ado, here are this week’s writing prompts:

Theme: Strange Occurrences


Bonus prompt – Headline:
 Fighting crows halt trains

As usual, remember comments are semi-moderated, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away. Newcomers can learn more about Saturday Scribes here (including how to do a permalink to your post) and read the prompt guidelines here.

    Had to get a couple extra late-night poems in to wrap up National Poetry Month:

    meanwhile, in Elysium (two short poems)

    I’ll give the prompts a whirl some time this weekend (going back to prose after a month of poetry will be interesting, to say the least).
