Saturday Scribes Writing Prompts Sept. 18

We’re back! Writing prompts are posted weekly, first thing on Friday, from September through June, with a break during the December holiday season. Once the prompts are up, you can feel free to post a link to your creative writing (whatever form it may take). Writers are also welcome to browse the site for earlier prompts, but if you want people to read your stuff it’s best to post your link in the most current Scribes posting. Contributions of writing quotes and links to news and articles of interest to writers are also welcome, as long as they’re not advertising anything commercial (links to writing contests and conferences are okay). Enjoy!

Theme: Precarious

Words:
guided
irresistible
sunspot
bravado

Saturday Scribes Sunday Prompts July 19

Sorry for the late posting. Yet another whirlwind trip out of town, in the midst of major rennovations. This is why I usually suspend weekly prompts during July & August! These will be the last prompts for the summer, then we’ll (hopefully) be resuming them in September. If this is your first time here, feel free to make use of this week’s or any other previous week’s prompts. You can continue to post links in the comments section to any creative writing you wish to share throughout the rest of the summer. Happy writing, all!
