Time for a Road Trip

A writing road trip, that is! We had so much fun last year writing flash fiction and micro memoir, so I’m bringing back the writer’s road trip. Each Wednesday in July, I’ll post a road-trip-related writing prompt and a music mix to get you in the groove.

Your task will be to write fiction, memoir, or poetry inspired by the prompt. The catch? It has to fit on the back of a postcard. Snap photos of the postcard’s back and front and share them using hashtag #roadtrip. You can post them on the Flickr group, share on Twitter, or let me know in the comments where they are. Every Monday I’ll post a selection of postcards for your enjoyment. At the end of the month, there will be random drawings for glamorous prizes.

These prompts are for you, whether you are a novice or seasoned writer. In fact, even if you don’t usually think of yourself as a writer, you can still play along (and know that you are, indeed, a writer!). Use the prompts as they inspire you. Give yourself the pleasure of surprising yourself, the joy of a little time to write, and complete a small piece.

Don’t miss a prompt! Click here to subscribe to the #roadtrip prompts and have them delivered right to your email!
