Virginia DeBolt hosts “First 50 Words”, where she provides a topic for others to write about it in approximately 50 words. This is lots of fun and helps kick-start ideas–who knows where those 50 words will lead? Could be the beginnings of a short story, a poem, or perhaps a mystery novel that’s been percolating for months.
Why not give it a try, and see where your creativity takes you? Just click on this link and add your 50 words to Virginia’s Blog–and don’t forget to let me know that you did so I can go there and read your work!
