Each month Shelf-of-Friends will hold a selection of prompts for group members to choose from. We hope through this that we can inspire others to write and create beautiful works.

The contest will end February 1st at midnight.

O v e r v i e w

To invoke inspiration, we have selected a format that group members must write in; we do this in hopes of motivating members to try and expand their abilities in other forms of writing. As for the prompt, there are three things members must choose from to use in the submitted piece and to help invoke inspiration:
  • a first line to be used in the beginning of the work;

  • a last line to be used at the end of the work;

  • a word to help invoke uniqueness for the piece.

  • a theme*only for the month of January, and other selected months.

*We suggest that you use only one, but if you feel the need to use all, that is also acceptable.  

This month's format: second person point of view; prose or poetry.

You must choose from the following to incorporate in your work:

A First Sentence: you were two parts of the same thing...
A Last Sentence:  ... you float on.
A Word: Saccharine ( sak-er-in (adj) ) very sweet to the taste; sugary.

or A Theme: Thoughts as sicknesses, disease, contagion, and/or cancerous

Please submit your work here.

Seeing as how we are not yet a prestigious group, we cannot hand out many coins. If you'd like to make donations so that we are able to do so, please visit the Founder's page and donate. All donations will be made toward this contest!
