Week 14/15: Prompt

Hi there.

For the next two weeks, I will be busy with other projects so I have decided to do something different here. I am going to double the amount of words and time you have. 1000 words due April 12th, 8 pm EST. Send to the usual place: mercurialstories@gmail.com.

And the prompt, which seems appropriate considering the double nature of this assignment: twins, in whatever shape or form appeals to you. If you need a suggestion, one idea is that you write 500 words from one twin’s perspective and 500 words from the other’s. Again, just a suggestion. Do what you like and enjoy the extra time and length.

I will see you in two weeks. Happy April.

And, because I will not be here, I went ahead and put the playlist together.

Week 13: Jokes: Playlist

Here’s your weekly audio-inspiration. This time we have some Bob Dylan, The Smiths, Elvis Costello, and Barbra Streisand. Looking forward to seeing what sort of jokes are anchoring your stories this week.

No. 12: Addy: Playlist

To accompany this week’s special prompt, a playlist that is a little special itself. I tried to find songs to match scenes. I think I did a decent job of it but if you have a song you want to add, just leave your suggestion in the comments.

On this list we have some Paul Simon, Roy Orbison, Ra Ra Riot, Superchunk, and many, many more. 21 songs to get you cranking on your story. Enjoy!

No. 11: Childhood Wonder: Playlist

And here is this week’s playlist. With songs of magic and mystery from The Monkees, The Loving Spoonful, Santigold, The Magnetic Fields among many others. 20 tracks to get you writing your very short story.
