Welcome to Writer’s Island.
We are pleased to now be in our fifth (5th) year here on the Island, providing writing prompts. New prompt(s) are posted every Saturday at 12:01 AM, U.S. East Coast Time. Consider the prompt in depth, then let inspiration carry you.
When you feel what you’ve written is ready to be read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Please leave whatever expanded comment you wish as a part of your posted link. You can also reply directly to any other comment.
••>The Week #23 prompt for 2011 is “CONTINGENT”.
Think of the many meanings of this word, for example: • likely but not certain to happen, • possible, • not logically necessary, • empirical, • happening by chance or unforeseen causes, • subject to chance or unseen effects, • unpredictable, • intended for use in circumstances not completely foreseen, • dependent on or conditioned by something else, • determined by free choice — these to name a few.
Whether you use the actual word in your piece, or not — meditate on contingent, then let it spark your muse… or choose to go in your own direction with your piece this week. Just let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write.
Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!!
