Each week your WWBH Hop Hosts (Leanne, Heather, Debb, and Myself) bring you a fresh prompt and the opportunity to stretch your creative muscles. You can view WWBH Kick-Offs and submitted stories on the WWBH 2015 page. There is also a page to view stories submitted for WWBH 2014.
Here are the rules
1) You will see one of two prompts each week–either one photo with five mandatory words OR two photos to be incorporated together. Use the photo(s) and prompt to write a 500-word story; all elements of the prompt must be a feature in the brief story you create.
2) When 1 photo/5 words is the theme, the 5 words MUST be clearly referenced in your story. Variations on a word are allowed within reason (for example: adding s, ed, ing to the word to be grammatically correct); however, creating a new, unrelated, word is not okay… because it simply isn’t part of the prompt.
3) We ask that you keep your story to approximately 500 words (give or take). We aren’t counting but, please, no 1000-word entries.
4) PHOTOS: Photos are the property of the hostess for the week, unless otherwise mentioned. In order to honor the community-purpose of the blog hop and to avoid confusion:
~ Please Do Not share photos and/or prompt words as your own.
~ Please include the photo(s) and reference the blog hop in your post so your blog audience and the blog hop community may all be connected.
~ Please do not include extra photos into your story… Thank you so much for understanding! Let us know if you have questions on this. 🙂
5) Link your story through the blue frog at bottom of the prompt by the following Tuesday (direct link to story, not your whole blog, please). If you are unable or need help, contact your hop hostess via the comments: Leanne, Heather, or Tena. We do reserve the right to not publish your entry if your submission does not adhere to these instructions… not because we are mean, but because we want to keep this prompt fair for all participants. 🙂
6) Have Fun! Take your writing seriously, but let those creative juices flow! Don’t fret/panic/pass out/hyperventilate/lose sleep/run in fear over the blog hop, instead let this be an exercise in letting the imagination run wild while staying within the discipline of flash-fiction—short and compelling!
