A to Z Blogging Challenge - Story Starters

Yesterday I posted a flash preview of the photos I am using for my 26 letters of the alphabet blog posts for the A to Z Blogging Challenge next month. A recent blog post by Damyanti, has led me one step forward.

For the next week I will accept starter prompts for each letter, using the photos in this post for your inspiration. Post your story starter prompt in the comments here, listing the letter of the alphabet you are using. Please try to keep the prompt to ten words or less.

For clarity, here is my list of words:
  • Ambition
  • Boisterous
  • Closed
  • Deadly
  • Elegant
  • Future
  • Garage
  • Hoard
  • Icy
  • Jaywalking
  • Knothole
  • Linked
  • Missing
  • Nonsense
  • Open
  • Poison
  • Quirky
  • Reticent
  • Simple
  • Trinity
  • Urgent
  • Vehicle
  • Wallflower
  • Xyloid
  • Yearning
  • Zipper
I look forward to your input, be sure to list something I can link to in order to credit your input: Blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

  2. Hi Donna, I found your blog through Pinterest, you are following my color palette board and I always like to see who follows and what their boards are like. I have to say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your Fantasyland and Mystery Novel inspiration boards. I love to read, and mystery/fantasy are my favs! How fun to write as you travel from place to place, I look forward to seeing all the wonderful places you go...I see that you are in NV, I've been through the Valley of Fire many times! I love your A-Z list! :)

  3. Donna, I am waiting for someone to give me an example before I participate because I'm not sure what to do.

  4. Thanks, Arlee. I'm enjoying myself.

    Sharla, glad you found the blog and hope you continue to enjoy it.

    Wendy, all I need is the start of a sentence. Take the photo(s) for icy...a prompt might be:
    The ice storm...
    The roads were icy...
    He slowed down as he turned the corner...
    No one knew when...

    Just the start of a sentence, that's all. ;-)

  5. Hi Donna, I'm popping in from the A-Z. Good luck with the challenge!

  6. Hi Donna. I'm visiting from the A to Z Challenge list to get a head start in finding some great new blogs. Nice to meet you!
