Story Starter Scene Prompt-7 and citique contest

NEW NEWS! Let me know in the comment section of this post whether you find these prompts helpful. As incentive, everyone who leaves a comment on at least one Story Starter Scene Prompt this month will be entered into a drawing to receive a free critique/assessment of one of your scenes written from one of my prompts. This critique does not guarantee you will be published. This is simply a published author offering kind but honest feedback on the drawing winner's scene.

AND...you will receive 1 entry for each comment entered on separate weekly prompts during the course of the current month month. I post prompts every Tuesday unless I'm guestblogging elsewhere. In that case, still leave a comment and I'll count the comment as another entry. Be sure to leave a valid e-mail address. I suggest you put [brackets} around the "@" sign so Net Spiders don't phish your address.

Onward to this week's prompt....

• Begin each scene using one of three Scene Starter Sentences.
• Use any combination of (1) sentence/(5) words.

• Or if you’re really brave, try using ALL 15 prompt words in their proper usage and incorporate all three sentences into your scene hook ins or hook out.
• Most of all, have fun!

Hey! Personally, I love the prompts even though it's been awhile since I've participated in one. They really get my juices flowing

Whoops...forgot to also mention that you are entered in the crit contest if you want. There is no limit to when the winner must send in their piece to be critted. So if a person wins but doesn't send their scene to me to be critted for a year, that's fine.
