Back from a long hiatus, Prompt Snaps is coming back.
Right now, it’s being dusted off and things are being put back in order. New features are being added and a better system is being put into the works. I only ask that you wait just a little longer! I think that we both want PS to be the best that it can and that will take some time. (Not a lot! It shouldn’t take too long.)
There will be:
If you have any ideas that you think make PS better, feel free to send them in! The ASK and SUBMISSION boxes are both open. Don’t be shy, I didn’t come up with all of these things on my own! PS needs your support as well!
GIVE YOUR OPINION! What is it that you liked about PS? What didn’t you like? (Besides PS leaving, that’s pretty much understood as being something that was unliked.)
Remember to tell all of your friends, family, co-workers, co-worker’s dog, that dog’s friends and family and co-worke—I’ll stop.
Thank you for sticking around. It means the world and everything that you did even when PS was looking at the delete button there for a while. Please understand that this couldn’t happen and wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for all the beautiful followers about. (I almost wrote flowers. SAME THING RIGHT?)
PS looks forward to seeing you!
PROMPT SNAPS WILL BE UNDERGOING A HIATUS.
Due to unforeseen events, Prompt Snaps is going to have to take the back burner for a small while. It’s not going anywhere, there will be nothing changing but there will be no new prompts for a while.
I’m so incredibly sorry for this. I wish that there was someway to avoid it but there are times when life simply needs to be grabbed by the reigns and pulled to a stop. It happens and I’m sorry that PS will be stopping as well.
However! When we get back rolling, PS will come back better than before! Thanks to those who’ve submitted what they want to see happen, there are big plans in store for both you and this blog. I want to thank each one of you and I totally would, personally with a big hug. (If hugs aren’t your think then I’ll just wink to you suggestively. Take it how you like.)
TL;DR: PS IS GOING BYE-BYE FOR A BIT. WILL BE BACK. LOVE YOU.
PROMPT: Describe a world within a world.
CHALLENGE: They exist without knowing the other one exists.
PROMPT: When describing something fantastical, someone will usually go up and beyond to get their point across. Your character is describing something, maybe something they’ve never seen before but is otherwise known or something that hasn’t been seen before.
CHALLENGE: In their description, they get the wrong point across. Does it turn into something crazy with people running back and forth or does it turn into something like the boy who cried wolf?
PROMPT: Dreams are often confusing and your character is one of those few people whose dreams are about random things. However, they’re trying to tell the dreamer something.
CHALLENGE: After a while, they stop having these dreams. They begin to miss these dreams. Why? Why did they stop? Was the thing that they dreams were trying to tell the dreamer resolved or simply ignored?
PROMPT: Whilst strolling, you stumble upon an old photograph of a young person who looks exactly like someone who just recently broke hearts. (Be it yours or someone else’s) Explain how this is.
CHALLENGE: They are not vampires or anything supernatural. Nor are they related in any why shape or form.
PROMPT: Write about a place, any place. A faraway place or somewhere just outside the window. Perhaps even the window itself. Write about a place.
CHALLENGE: There is no characters in this place. Think only of the setting. You can describe one is passing, perhaps someone who made it but the place itself is empty.
PROMPT: You’ve heard the saying that cats all have nine lives. Write the story of each life in about 100 words. Does the cat ever remember these lives? Do they wake up into their new life not knowing what happened to them? When the first actual life start and when does it end? How long do they spend thinking about this? Or are they just cats and don’t know the difference?
CHALLENGE: Free Challenge.
PROMPT: Your character has rushed through their plans and now the mess that they have created is much larger than it was before. They flee to a place where they can think, where everything does make sense. Here, they try to figure out how to fix it.
CHALLENGE: Describe this place but weave the problems your character is facing into it. (The rocks of the low garden wall were crumbling, falling apart due to poor maintenance. It brought back the image of Sarah’s face to his mind and how he couldn’t stop her tears.)
This is RJ, your slack—PROMPT WRITER, here at Prompt Snaps. I thought that it would be the time to take a moment and gave a couple of words with you guys because it seems that these words are needed to be had. (Did that make sense? Nope.)
First of all, I would like to apologize for the lack of prompts here. I stumbled over myself and spilled food all over the front of my new shirt when I saw that we have over 500 followers. FIVE HUNDRED FOLLOWERS and I’m here slacking and I just want to apologize for that.
I’m sorry, I will work harder to get these prompts to you!
Second, I would like to welcome you all! It’s been a good run and hopefully you’ll stick around for the rest.
Thirdly, I would like to propose you all if Prompt Snaps did MORE than just prompts? This would be giving advice to writers, seeking out writing articles, trying to remember if you need to use its or it’s when you’re talking about dogs, and other things.
The prompts would still be the BIG thing but I was wondering if you would like to see PS do some of these things?
PROMPT: A rose is the central point of your story but it’s not the important part. Keep away from the Beauty and the Beast plot line but focus more on how else could a rose be important. Make it a character of its own.
CHALLENGE: When the important part of the story is revealed, remember to keep it in the flow of the story. Don’t pop in a SUDDENLY because it distracts the reader from what’s happening. I’ve no idea what the challenge is. I’m sick, excuse my snot trail of failure.
PROMPT: Describe a place created completely out of a fantastical setting. Focus only on the setting, create a character of it. How does your setting behave? Does it work with the people who live there or have they conquered it completely? What about its fauna and flora?
CHALLENGE: Go all the way with your imagination. Don’t just stop at one spot because it doesn’t make sense. Make it make sense and go with it.
PROMPT: Using the quote above fromPaulo Coelho, The Alchemist, describe someone who demands a reason for being loved and the person who loves without a reason. Write it in two parts, using both point of views.
CHALLENGE: Write both scenes in third person, working to describe the emotion that both character feels. (Unless you normally write in third, then write it in first.)
PROMPT: Create a new species either for this world or a world of your own. How does it interact with the world or with its people? Is it rare? Is it common? Make a character of its own and have it interacting either with people or in a natural habitat.
CHALLENGE: This challenge has been stolen by the bird above. Rude.
PROMPT: Using only dialogue, describe this world between two characters. One lives in this time and place and the other doesn’t although is unknown to the first.
CHALLENGE: Will they tell that they aren’t from here? Or keep it a secret because of hidden feeling or perhaps a secret plot? Remember to portray everything to dialogue, including feelings or emotions. Don’t use descriptions!
