A rose by any other name

The Clerkenwell Writer’s Asylum inaugural writing prompt challenge!

At our first regular meeting of 2015 last night, the idea of using writing prompts to help encourage those of us who need an extra push to get writing, or just like prompts was raised.

I decided to take the initiative and launch our first but hopefully not last such challenge.

For those that haven’t used them before – here is a great tumblr which explains them and provides some good ones.


You could use the prompts to inspire a story for the CWA Blog or one you want to take further… If you participate in the challenge it doesn’t mean you have to bring the story to a meeting, just share them via email.  It would be great if someone else wanted to provide prompts for the next challenge in February if this takes off as an idea.

January Challenge – A Rose by Any other Name

If you click this link http://www.rosebuddies.com/list.html you will find a list of varieties of rose.

Choose one and use that as the title of your story (of course it doesn’t have to be about roses the idea is to use the name as a starting point).

The challenge starts today and finishes on the 9th of February. There are no word limits.

Good writing everyone!

    I’ve just posted this over at the Clerkenwell Writers Asylum blog, but hey I don’t see why readers of my blog shouldn’t use these prompts if they like as well.
