Thursday Night Write + Guardian of the Gate Clue?
That’s right. I’m so badass that I’m actually going to give you guys a written prompt in the form of a passage from Guardian of the Gate.
Okay. That’s not really badass. But let me have my fun, will you?
Anyway, I thought it would be fun to mix up our picture prompts with something written, so this one will come in the form of a passage from Guardian of the Gate. This way, you get a teaser, too. Because I can even multi-task TNW!
Same rules apply; Give yourself no more than 30 minutes to write something inspired by this passage (obviously not Prophecy- or Guardian-related! Take it in your own direction!). Then post no more than 500 words of it for comment, and don’t forget to comment at least one other entry.
Your prompt is as follows;
“The field’s openness is terrifying, though the sun shines brightly, turning gold the wild grass and swaying wheat that stretches in every direction. For all its beauty, the field leaves me no place to hide.”
And now, a couple of updates;
Thanks to everyone who’s entered the Ipod Super Swag Giveaway. There’s still lots of time to enter, so keep sending newbies to the blog to comment. That way you get extra entries.
I also want to thank Indigo Canada for nominating Prophecy of the Sisters in the Best Villain category for their First Annual Teen Read Awards. I’m especially honored to be nominated in this category, because I always set out to create a complex, multi-dimensional villain in Alice. So please head over the the Teen Read Awards site and show Prophecy some love by voting in the Best Villain category and posting comments about it. Because let’s face it; Alice is the BEST at being BAD. 😀 Plus, there are tons of amazing prizes up for grabs just for voting, and you can vote every day through August 30th.
Lastly, I need to say a very special Happy Birthday to one of the most incredible young people I know, Annie aka Senfaye from A Maze of Books. I was invited to participate in a Birthday Vlog Compilation, but the truth is, I’m a bit vlog shy! So I’m just going to wish Annie a very Happy Birthday in the best way I know how. By telling her that I have rarely met someone her age with such a devoted passion for books. Annie came onto the blogging scene over a year ago at a very tender age. I know it was not always easy for her to be in the company of older, more experienced bloggers, but Annie’s love of books shone through in her reviews. And that, my friends, is what it’s all about.
So Happy Birthday, my Sweet. May life offer you all the joy, excitement, and love you deserve. And when it does, may you grab it with both hands and enjoy the ride. I love ya, kiddo!
