Karavansara’s Friday Prompts


I mentioned my failure in making Plinky work with Karavansara.
A pity, really, because the writing prompts provided by Plinky might stimulate some writing.

But then I got thinking – Karavansara wants to be an original blog.
It’s about storytelling, travel, adventure, pulp, the Orient and other exotic locales.
It’s about mystery and intrigue and the romantic past.
It’s about history, and what-might-have-beens.
It can’t just take any writing prompt.

And so, I said to myself, what the heck, I’ll do my own writing prompts service, and share’em with the surfers – writing prompts tailored on the topics I love, on the stuff I write and I play.
I even have a name for it!
<fanfare, please…>

Karavansara’s Friday Prompts!

Starting… well, this Friday, I’ll post a writing prompt every Friday.
The idea being, you can pick it up and write a short story or something in the weekend.
And if you write it, please drop me a line in the comments, or share a link!

I’m going for photographic prompts… because they are the kind I like best.
But paintings, sketches and even snippets of text will probably appear, too.
Right now, I’ll pick and choose from my Pinterest boards… and might even start a Pinterest Board just for this topic in a few weeks, collecting all the prompts as they come online.

But that’s in the future.
For now, see you on Friday with the first prompt!
