I thought it would be a neat idea to share those opening words with my readers and then invite them to write a short story of their own. I would love to read the stories you come up with.
The story can be as long or as short as you'd like, though I believe anywhere from 1-5k would work best. There are no real rules for this, just something I thought would be a fun way to interact with my readers. Those who would like to share the stories they come up with can email the story to me at kgrian (at) gmail (dot) com
Once I receive all the stories, I would love to feature a few of my favorites on my blog and perhaps if I get enough stories ideally I'd like to put together a free anthology to showcase them and publish it on Amazon. Perhaps sometime around Halloween. Of course before either of those take place, I would obtain your permission to do so. You are free to participate without having to be included in the blog feature or anthology.
Here's the writing prompt:
They say silence is deafening. I don't know if it is deafening, but I do know it is maddening. At least it was for me. By the time I died though, I prayed for that silence...
Let me know what you think about trying something like this, and of course, if you have any questions feel free to either leave a comment or send me an email. Most of all, I hope you all have a blast with it!
