How About...?

How about a writing prompt? It's been a little while since we've had one, so thought I'd post one today:) It's always fun to see what my writer friends come up with. Everyone's perspective is unique and it generates a nice assortment of stories. So here goes:

Write a flash fiction story using this line as the opening:

"How much is this bunch of carrots? Lydia asked.

After you write it, please share the story! My email is karenelange(at)gmail(dot)com. Perhaps you won't even mind giving me permission to share it in a future post...but only if you want to, of course.

Happy Writing!


  1. I found you over at Maria's blog. :)

    I would love to write about these carrots but I am NO good at writing on the spur-of-the-moment. I have to think things out. I've always wished I could write like that and envy those who can.

    Bet you'll get a lot of great responses though.

    Talk to you soon. :)

  2. I see you're a home-school consultant. Cool. I home-school. Graduated two and on the third and last. :)

  3. Hi Robyn,
    Thanks for stopping by! There is no time frame for this writing prompt, so if something eventually hits you, feel free to write about it:) Blessings to you, and thanks again for stopping by.

  4. Yes, Robyn, I homeschooled my three kids K-12...seems like just yesterday our last (our daughter) graduated, but it really was several years ago. So I am still a homeschooler at heart. Wish you all the best with your final leg of the journey! :)

  5. Dear Karen, thank you for stopping by on my blog and becoming one of my followers.
    I love your kind of challenge, I will definitely give it a go, even though I am no writer. Have a good weekend. Raymonde

  6. Hi Raymonde,
    Many thanks to you too. I bet you are more of writer than you think...after all, you write a blog:)
    Blessings to you!


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Have a blessed day!
