Well, I got tired of waiting around for someone to create an inspiring writing prompt challenge, so I decided to do it myself! Not to say there aren't good writing prompt challenges out there, but I haven't been able to find any that jive with my brain. Paving the way for example, I'll participate in my own writing prompt, which I've posted HERE on my writers blog. Any of you aspiring writers out there should take a look and get involved! Here's the prompt for this week…
Writing Prompt #1
Use this somewhere in your writing exercise:
Hands trembling, she opened the envelope.
He tossed the letter onto the table before her. “Go ahead. Open it.”
Amanda gawked at the embossed seal with the familiar crest. Picking it up, she turned it over to examine the writing. Fancy script by a skilled calligrapher swirled across the high-quality paper. The return address did not have a name, but she knew it all too well. Hands trembling, she opened the envelope. With her thumb and forefinger, she dipped inside and tugged at the enclosed card. Gold-embossed letters gleamed in the overhead light. Her heartbeat quickened. Her breath caught in her lungs.

Amanda dropped the formal announcement as if she'd been burned. “No! I'm not doing it!”
The FBI agent frowned. “Nothing is going to happen to you, I promise. You said you wanted to help. Here's your chance.”
She almost choked on her protests. “Not by becoming bait for the killer!”
Doh! That's all I had time for! If you want to participate in this prompt, please visit my writers blog HERE, where you'll see instructions and guidelines. Good luck and have fun! I hope you enjoyed my entry for the challenge.
