Live Prompts with Roll-A-Prompt Writing Journal and You Can Play Too!

Good Adventures,

More live writing prompts this week! I'm joined by Lisa Mahoney, my co-author in the Roll-A-Prompt Writing Journal Series, and authors Jeannie Wycherley, Misha Safran, and Joan Mularz. They write, we chat, then they read. All in 30 minutes. 

This time we worked from the Mystery Edition and I've included the prompt we used so that you can play too! Our authors had about 20 minutes to write this time. After you've listened to the show, grab a six sided dice, roll for your elements, set your timer for 20 minutes and then share some or all of what you wrote by commenting over on our YouTube channel. 

Prompt Set: 

Roll your dice for your main character. Even= Your MC is alone Odd= Roll again for a companion.

  1. Cigar Maker
  2. Gymnastics Coach
  3. Lobster Boat Captain
  4. Retail Store Clerk
  5. Mall Ear-Piercing Kiosk Girl
  6. Survivalist

IF the MC is alone, add an object. Roll one number

  1. Air Conditioner
  2. Exit Sign
  3. Crib
  4. Quarter
  5. Bulletproof Vest
  6. Desk Calendar

Roll One Number for a Scenario

  2. Falling Into A Ravine
  3. Motor Won't Start
  4. Unclogging A Stopped-Up Sink
  5. Kids Running Through A Broken Fire Hydrant
  6. Developing Film In A Dark Room

That's it. Write down what you roll, set your timer, and get to writing! If you share in the comments, I'll read them in a future show. No time limit if you're listening way off in the future.
