Introducing Coldly Calculating: Writing by the Numbers
October 7, 2015 2 Comments Coldly Calculating, Writing Prompts A.L. Mabry

 Welcome to the weekly writing prompt hosted by yours truly. Each week I will ask you to dive into the darker corners of your imagination to bring chills and thrills to your readers.


So mark your calendars because this prompt starts next week!


The rules are simple:

  1. Read the prompt and the history behind the phrase.
  2. Write a story 700 words or less answering the challenge.
  3. Share the url to your story in the comments OR, if you don’t have your own blog, share your story in the comments. Either way, it will be seen.
  4. Please keep your stories pg-13 or under since this is a public page. Add trigger warnings where necessary. Keep vulgarity to a minimum.
  5. Have FUN!

Until next time, scribe happy and stay sassy!
