DECEMBER PROMPT CONTEST-SQUIRREL'S STORY STARTER

Well here it is....the moment you've all (fourteen) been waiting for: (LOL!)

DECEMBER'S PROMPT:

To reiterate the rules, write a 500 word scene beginning with one of the following hook lines, and try to use at least five of the ten prompt words.

As always, you retain rights to everything you send and it will not be posted anywhere.

Deadline for entry of December's prompt is December 31 since I'm late getting this month's prompt out.

Winner will be notified the first week in January, and will receive their choice of a new release Steeple Hill book.

It's not too late to jump on the Story Starter bandwagon for the overall contest...where the overall annual Story Starter winner will receive a six month subscription to any Steeple Hill line of their choice paid for by me to the book club. This mother contest in only a few months in and there's room in the race for you. Remember, you don't have to have won to be included in the mother contest, you just have to consistantly enter. The person who's entered the most number of times in a twelve month span will win. So come on guys, that's only twelve total times. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

Now, let's move on to the good stuff.

DECEMBER'S PROMPT:

Write a 500 word scene beginning with one of these lines:

Of all days, why did this have to happen today?

"I got your message and came as fast as I could. Sit down, tell me what's wrong?"

"You'll never believe who I ran into at the doctor's office."


Diagnosis
Plan
Support
Tabloid
Train
Motocross
Eggs
Collision
Turkeys
Flee

Happy Writing!

Oh, and as always, send submissions or questions to Cheryl @ CherylWyatt.com (remove spaces before and after the @ sign)

Your choice of words always cracks me up (and I wasn't even thinking of eggs being on the list!) I read down two or three, thining how these could work together, then...bam! something like motocross is in the eggs and the tabloids have the story!
