Prompt – May 3

Welcome to the Haunted Wordsmith Daily Prompt (HWDP). This prompt is going to be both familiar and different at the same time. To participate, simply read this post and follow where the muse takes you. You may select any, all, or none of the prompts…it’s all up to you. Link back to this post, or leave a link in the comments so that others can find you.

Have Fun!

Prompt A (genre challenge): First Contact (science fiction)

Prompt B (Story Starter): “I’m hitting play!”

Prompt C (photo):

Note: Is there an interest in the prompts? I had people ask to keep them, then interest dropped off completely. Just curious…

  1. I’ve done a few of these. Honestly, Teresa, there are so many daily prompts these days that I need to be grabbed by the prompt, especially if the prompt involves multiple things (like the Three Things Challenge or, as this prompt of yours, three categories). Maybe, rather than doing this prompt daily, you should offer it weekly, or twice a week. Of course, that’s entirely up to you.


  2. For me I don’t like change. I was happy with the individual prompts of story starters and opposites. I don’t like combos as much, but that’s just me. Today’s is not catching my interest at all. I will have to think if I can use at least one of them, the prompt B, story starter most likely.


  3. By combining three prompts in one post, perhaps readers think they have to use all three. I haven’t done any recently, but would probably only use one. It’s early days for the new format though


  4. Teresa I am grateful for the many choices you offer. For me I do not really know how to write a lot of these Genres except the poetry ones, I loved the Opposites Attract & the Elemental Challenges. The story started I did sometimes but I am not an experienced writer like you and the others. I hope to learn more about writing though. I am really grateful for all the challenges you offered and I know it takes a lot of time to host them and respond. Thank you for asking us to share our thoughts with you but most of all, follow your heart and it will guide you down the path that’s right for you. Sweet Blessings my friend, Deborah 🙂 ❤

  6. I have a tendency to combo prompts that are like a months worth in a list? Then if someone has a Combo list of 3 or 4 that’s great, These peopole that combo from 4 different Sources confuse me lol, but i will roll with however things go…………..might toss up a few new ideas myself sometime, Hope you are resting up! Ah know sometimes ya just gotta get aways from the internet peeps 😛


  7. oh and format? is that on the computer? I do prefer the wordpress app but then i used it less with less data so perhaps i am completely out of loop. I go old school and HUNT for you and whoever i want to see so i won’t miss what I Want 😛


  8. I have been looking through your prompts. I love the prompts you provide. I have a crazy schedule at them moment so I have not been keeping up with most prompts…however, I have two scheduled in response to your prompts and they will be published later this week.

    I had my one year blogging notification from WordPress the other day, and I have decided that the only way I can keep going, is to limit myself to one post a day.

    I am sure more than a few of my posts will be in response to prompts from you though. I think you see great potential in images and I have to say I love the genre challenges…they have stretched me, which is great.
