What is a We-Write?
If this is your first time coming across a WE-Write post, have no fear! It's all quite simple.
Every Monday we'll give you the beginning of a story. Use that beginning and keep writing. Most people do the 5-minute freewrite method, but a little longer is okay, too.
Then, publish it as a post with a link to this post AND drop a link to your post in the comments below this one. To be eligible to win you must comment on this post with a link to your entry.
Or, you may publish your story as a comment to this post.
How Do You Win?
Each week the winner will be chosen randomly from the entries. The deadline for entering is Sunday night at 7:00pm EST, aka the same timezone as Boston, USA.
The announcement will be made the following day in the post for the next week's prompt! If you're the winner, @ntowl will send you your SBI then. 😊
This Week's Prompt
The smell of cinnamon and fresh fruit wafted lovingly through the kitchen, drifting between the bakers and through the hallway leading to the storefront. The scent tempted the awaiting patrons, each lining up before the display case of assorted pastries, pies, and cream-filled confections. Lucas, in his white apron and pastel name tag, saw that the ever-popular eclairs were running low. He left Beverly to tend to the customers as he went to gather more. Smiling, he reached into one of the racks in the kitchen and pulled out the fresh pastries to fill the empty tray.
“We’re going to need more eclairs ,” Lucas mused, “they’re almost all gone back here, too.”
“Well, what else is new?” Jonah laughed. “I’ll get someone on it once we’re done with these pies,” he said as he gestured loosely to the delectables around him. Lucas had helped unload the giant crates of peaches and blueberries that morning, and seeing their baked form made his mouth water. More than that, he longed to make one, perhaps with a cracker crust, carefully baked and topped with a little sugar. No, drizzled honey.
Jonah saw Lucas’ eager stare and questioned, “How long have you worked here now?”
“Oh, uh, about six months.” Lucas had briefly forgotten that he worked front of the house, not in the wonders of the kitchen, and began loading the eclairs again.
“Well, when you’re done refilling those come back. There’s something I want to show you.”
So what happens next is up to you! I'm really looking forward to reading your continuations. If you choose to make your own posts, please use some type of delineation between the prompt and your writing, whether that's dashes, or just stating "Here's my bit:".
As always, any resteems and upvotes will be eternally appreciated (but aren't necessary for the contest or anything). Let's spread the word and get writing!
