Welcome to Prompt of the Day!

by leeshelly


My name is Lee, and welcome to your daily fix.  I’ve been keeping a daily prompt running on Reddit.com, a link aggregate site, for the last five months and I’ve attracted far more readers than I ever imagined I would.  So I’m creating a blog where I can do the same thing, to share with even more people.

This is a place where anything is welcome.  I will post a writing prompt every day, and your job is to write!  The rules are simple:

  • Write.
  • If you feel comfortable, share.  I will read every single piece of writing that is submitted, and I will critique it.  Not a very long critique, but I will always tell you one thing I liked and one thing that I felt didn’t work.
  • Try to keep posts short, for the sake of others trying to read your work.  Formatting can be lost in longer posts, and if it’s unreasonably long (say, over a few hundred words) find someplace to put it and post a link.  Google Docs is great for this.  So is Scribd.
  • Have fun.

And that’s it!  This is a place to grow, to share, to learn.  I’ll post the first prompt tomorrow, and then we can get started!  I’m so excited to see what everyone has to say!
