In case you didn’t know, I recently have been making an effort to accept writing prompt submissions from my followers on Instagram every weekend. The original intention was for me to get some writing practice on a weekly basis (just to keep the rusts at bay), but the event ended up being so fun, I couldn’t help but hold it regularly.
I am very sure that some of you hardcore followers already know the rules for this writing prompt submission, but I’m going to write more information about this below:
How do you submit writing prompts?
- Check my Instagram Stories every Saturday morning.
Every week, I will put a Question Sticker so you can send me your writing prompts. I usually start accepting submissions at 9AM (Western Indonesian Time), but actual timing may vary, depending on when I actually wake up.
- Writing prompt = words / phrase suggestions.
Basically, you send me words/phrase of your choosing, and I will do my best to create a mini story/poem out of it.
- Write your writing prompt on the Instastory sticker, and submit!
Please be patient as I sort through your submissions. I can usually get things done by around Sunday evening. I can currently keep up with all your submissions, but this might have to change if this garners more participants.
- I will post my writings (based on your prompts) on my Instastory, and I will make sure to tag you!
- Be creative!
I’d love to receive challenging prompts.
- Be patient!
It takes time for me to write stories based on your prompts, guys!
If you like the writings I’ve done based on your prompts, feel free to share them with your family and friends! And if you could, encourage them to participate, too. I promise it would be fun! 🙂
- Rush me
I’m doing this mostly for fun, and rushing me to work on your prompts is not exactly what I would consider “fun”.
- Submit multiple prompts in a week
While I don’t forbid it per se, it’d be nice if you could limit your submission to 1 per week. I only have so much time during my weekends, and I’d really like to write for as many people as possible.
And that’s about it. I’m looking forward to seeing your creative writing prompts!
Also, I’m sorry about the lack of regular blog post during November. As I have pointed out in last month’s post, I am currently working on my NaNoWriMo project, which significantly cuts my spare time. As you can already guess, this also affects my ability to produce quality blog posts during this month, so I’m terribly sorry about that.
On the flip side, NaNoWriMo will end in just another week, so please look forward to my upcoming blog posts in December!
I will be posting new content every Saturdays, be it writerly stuff, or just things that I like to write about. This includes my own stories, information about my books, and things that interest me. Keep yourself updated by following me on Twitter and Instagram.
