Write the Story! December 2019 Prompt

Write the Story! December 2019

Our twelfth prompt.

A year has passed since we began the Write the Story! project.

Writers Unite! started this project to assist all of us to gain followers to our blogs, websites, and author pages and to gain experience as writers. We didn’t do this for accolades or critique but for enjoyment and to share our work with others. As we close out the first year of WTS!, I thank all writers who have participated and all who have read and supported the authors. The admins appreciate the positive support you have given the authors.


For the last prompt of 2019, we decided a simple image would be appropriate and perhaps, a bit difficult. Enjoy!


See you in 2020 for Year Two of Write the Story!

The December 2019 Prompt!

Here’s the plan:

Based on the image provided, 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.

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. We do ask that you share the link to your WU! Write the Story! post so that your followers can also read the works of your fellow writers. The idea is to generate increased traffic for all. It 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 November 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 prompt. 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)

Writers Unite! Tips on Writing: Story Foundation

Welcome to “Digital Arts Gathering”

From time to time, we, the admins come across articles or information that we feel is important to pass on to you. Today, we’d like to introduce you to the web page and Facebook group, Digital Arts Gathering. Jon Brumbaugh reached out to Karl Taylor about forming a partnership with Writers Unite! and we are excited to do so.

As Jon explains in his greeting below, digital publishing and digital arts are a natural combination as we strive to self-publish. Those of you who are artists, we hope you will join DAG and writers, a great resource for you as well. We are inviting DAG members to join us and share their works.

Let’s welcome, Jon and Digital Arts Gathering!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Greetings, Writers Unite! My name is Jonathan Brumbaugh and I run a Facebook group called Digital Arts Gathering. The admins of your group and I have planned something to help both of our groups enrich our forums. We’re crossing streams, today!

 
Come join Digital Arts Gathering and check out what some of our artists are posting. If you are looking for an artist for your novel, short story or even want to write for cartoons, indie games, or other forms of media, it may be possible to find such projects at DAG. We’re drawing near the 1,200 mark and hoping to attract even more artists. I will also include pinned posts where members can share their written works from time to time.

 
In this exchange, I will sending any DAG members interested in reading or writing to Writers Unite as well! I am hoping some cooperative projects are born as the end result of this promotion and it helps inspire the creative fires in us all!

 
Digital Arts Gathering is intended to be a place for digital artists of all kinds to come share their works. Whether it be 3D design, game design, 8-bit creations, Photoshop works, digital music composition, coding projects, indie films, or anything else relative to digital expression. Writers are important to me. They’re the organizers; the ones that lay the tracks, visionaries who give the biggest projects the essence of life they need to become something big. So come on in and lets see what kind of magic happens, shall we?

 
It’s also intended that DAG be a helpful place. Perhaps some of you are interested in learning how to create digital art or maybe you already are creative in that field. Post your work or come ask questions about how to start! On the blog, from time to time I feature artists, game developers, and coders who are working on interesting projects so be sure to check them out as well!
