I thought it would be fun to kick off each week with a writing prompt. Whether you’re a professional writer, an aspiring one, or a dabbler, why not join in? Every month I’ll pick a random winner from the comments I collect. The prize won’t be a trip to Disneyland or a new car, probably more like a bar of chocolate or possibly a new-car air freshener, but hey, having written a story you weren’t planning to write should actually be reward enough, right?
Stories shorter than 200 words can be left in the comments section. Longer than that, please just leave a comment saying you participated and I’ll put you in the monthly drawing, too.
Most importantly, have fun!
Today’s prompt: I stepped off the path into the woods, crossed the creek, and when I got to the towering red cedar, I walked around it three times, and then bent over to knock on the door that had appeared in the trunk near the roots.
