Castaway Kingdom Writing Prompts

Each month, I will post four to five prompts. Anyone who wishes to participate may write as many of them as they wish.

The prompt must be written as a oneshot, not as a chapter of an existing story.

The oneshots cannot be posted until the last week of the month, so that no one's interpretation of the prompt is clouded by what others have written.

The oneshots will be posted on your own accounts, but the summaries are required to state that it is part of Castaway's Kingdom Prompt Challenge, along with the prompt, and the month.

When you post a promptshot, please PM me with the story's name, so that we can add the story to the community.


Prompts for 2014:

The Heart

Thrift Shop

A Burning Building

Midnight

1932

Last month's prompts can be found here http://www.fanfiction.net/community/Castaways_Kingdom_Prompts/71507/


Overview/About me

Well hello people. I'm Castaway5. I'm a guy, green eyes, blond, and now a junior in college. I spend a lot of my time running, not away from anything mind, just running.

Anyway...My favorite book is Castaways of the Flying Dutchman. I have this weird disease called Castaway syndrome which basically means I'm obsessed with the series. I don't know why.

I'm currently posting

Titanic It'll be somewhere near 30,000 to 40,000 words. Updates are coming people, it's just taking awhile.

A Spoof of the Flying Dutchman In progress, will be the entire story.

The Sold Trilogy

Things I enjoy

I like running, rock climbing, writing, reading, playing risk, and sleeping.


When you know you have writers block...

You’ve been staring at the cursor so long the screen saver kicks in.

You’ve been staring at the cursor so long you begin to think there are little people living in your computer, trying to communicate with you via Morse code.

You start talking to the cursor.

You type: “And then the planet blew up and they all died. The End.”

You can’t even think of anything to add to the list of signs you have writer’s block.

You decide to give up writing and became a Buddhist alpaca herder in the Pacific Northwest.

You decide to submit the book to the publisher the way it is and pretend it was written by an author who died before he or she could finish the manuscript.

Your heart starts beating in time to the blinking cursor.

There are cobwebs on the keyboard.

You waste time writing a list of signs you have writer's block!
