What is Ariana’s Cafe?
Simply put: a place for the creative thinker.
How do I use the prompt?
However you like. Use it as inspiration for a discussion, use it to challenge yourself to blog on the prompt as a subject. Use it to help you with a scene that you’re struggling with. Use it as inspiration for a piece of artwork.
Bottom line: use your creative mind to come up with something amazing from this prompt.
Are there any rules?
No captcha. If you want to have comment approval, leave a note near the comments area. Too many people have been losing comments, and if their comment disappears, they should know that it didn’t go into never land.
No private blogs. If you share, make sure your blog is public. (You can always use my forum arianabrowning.proboards.com to blog publicly for a post, then share that link here.)
No Grammar Police. A lot of the people who join in are not professional writers. They enjoy writing to share their thoughts. Yes, we all appreciate someone who takes the time to spellcheck and grammar check, but not everyone knows proper grammar. We support with these blogs. Don’t critique unless it’s asked for.
Share whatever you come up with below in the comments. If it’s a blog post, share the link (always write some sort of description on the link so people will know you are not just a spammer). If it’s a short story you want to share, again, share the link to it. If it’s just a thought you had from the prompt, or maybe a scene that it helped you with, share that too. You do not have to share more than you want to, but even if you gained something from this prompt, I would love to hear it so I know they are of value, and which ones are valued most.
You’re welcome to tag me on any social network if you share there. 🙂
Here is the prompt for this week! See you next week.
Writers: Who is this stranger? Does your character know them? Why have they shown up? What do they want? How can they help (or hurt) your character?
Bloggers: What was the most interesting experience you have ever had chatting up a complete stranger?
Weekly question: What is your definition of a complete stranger?
