It is an accepted truism that those of us with high artistic aptitudes often lack business aptitude and vice-versa. Many writers bemoan the necessity of and time spent on promotion. We want to write. Most of us do not enjoy the aspects of our craft that involve promotion, marketing and the non-creative side of our profession.
Our overworked administrator is getting a well-deserved break today, so we figured you all might like to take this time to exercise your writing chops.
Therefore, here’s a writing prompt for you; do as you wish – short story, flash fiction, poem, what have you. There is no deadline or word count restriction. Just write. (Comments are closed – write on your own.)
This week’s word: INSIDIOUS
Use it however you’d like: as the title, in a sentence, or as inspiration. Ready, set, write!
