Write the Story September 2019 Prompt
We are taking a tiny departure this month. That is what happens when one member (Charles Stucker) who is a space geek suggests a prompt to an admin (that’s me) who is also a space geek!
This year we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission. An amazing technological milestone for the United States and for the pride of our nation. In this month, in 1962, President John F. Kennedy committed the nation to land on the moon by the end of the decade. We did.
“We choose to go to the Moon”
— President John F. Kennedy
You can read President Kennedy’s entire speech here: https://er.jsc.nasa.gov/seh/ricetalk.htm
Have fun and let your imagination fuel you as they did!
The September 2019 Prompt:
Here’s the plan:
You write a story of 3000 words or less (doesn’t matter, can be 50 words or a poem) and post it on the author site that you want to promote. Please edit these stories. We will do minor editing but if the story is not written well WU! reserves the right to reject publishing it. At minimum, a reference to the prompt must be included in your story.
Send the story and link to the site via Messenger to Deborah Ratliff. Put “Write the Story” in the first line of the message.
WU! will post your story on our blog and share across our platforms, FB, Twitter, Instagram, etc. WU! will also add the story to the Write the Story page on our blog…where it be for all to read along with the other stories.
We do ask that you share the link to the WU! Write the Story page so that your followers can also read the works of your fellow writers.
The idea is to generate increased traffic for all. May take some time but it will happen if you participate. The other perk of this exercise is that you will also have a blog publishing credit for your work.
The September2019 prompt is below… write the story!
Periodically throughout the month, we will post the current prompt as a reminder.
DO NOT post your story to this post. The idea is to have your STORY or poem published on your site, the WU! blog and shared to gain followers for your writing. We will not accept a one- or two-line caption. For the most part, we are fiction writers and poets…. please write a story or poem, not a caption.
If you have any questions regarding this, you may ask the question in the comments.
Thank you. (Please note: the images we will use as prompts are free-use images and do not require attribution.)
