WANTED: Challenges & Weekly Prompts

Searching for recommendations.

Last year, I was part of a weekly challenge to write a story a week based on a weekly prompt. Although I didn’t participate every week, I loved being a part of the small community of writers. I’ve searched for other weekly challenges and prompts, but it’s hard to find the good ones. So I figured I’d ask here to see if anyone could recommend good sites that have weekly/monthly challenges. Flash fiction, micro-fiction, poetry, short stories….

If you know of any, please make a list in the comments.

    Well i don’t know if they are GOOD but…. I started a weekly writing prompt this year, based on song lyrics. each week on a Saturday I post lyrics from a song (and provide a youtube link for good measure) and invite people to write a short story based on those lyrics. I don’t have many rules, just use the words for inspiration. You can choose whether to use the actual words, mention the song, or just merely take them as a prompt to get your mind whirring and nothing else. This week’s prompt is from Welcome to the Jungle by Guns n Roses.

    “Welcome to the jungle, it gets worse here every day. You learn to live like an animal in the jungle where we play”

    Come and check it out!

      Great minds think alike, then, lol. I’ve been doing the same thing on my “Tune-In Tuesday” daily prompts. I post a prompt every day, but on Tuesdays I post a youTube video with the same perimeters.
