January Dark Fantasy Bingo Card

This is my prompt card for the January 2017 Dark Fantasy Bingo challenge at the AllBingo site.

I’m reaching out to friends and family to make Dark Fantasy suggestions for any word or phrase on the bingo card that strikes their fancy and I’ll write at least 200 words of story based on their suggestion combined with the prompt word they chose. Prompts that have been spoken for will be turned Purple so it will be easy for everyone to keep track of whats already spoken for, and I will have all requested fills done by the end of the Challenge which is 1/31/2017.

200 words may not end up being a complete story in and of itself, but I’m using this exercise as a way to increase my writing capacity, so I’m making sure to set reasonable goals that I’m likely to reach rather than crashing and burning right out the gate!

I don’t have any regular story series that I write which are dark fantasy, or any fandoms that I regularly write in, but suggestions can include those if anyone likes.

Lets have fun and make a Bingo!

Voices Bingo Fest Card

I’m trying a new technique to encourage me to write more. I’m going to participate in a writing prompt community that creates monthly themed Bingo Fests.

This month’s theme at is Voices and the point of this theme is to explore new styles and emotional overtones in your work. The suggested length is 200 words or less. This should help keep me moving through the prompts, since there’s no pressure to have a completed work, just a drabble investigating each new feeling.

If anyone wants to suggest a particular idea feel free to make suggestions in the comments. Prompts that have been spoken for by someone will be italicized and blue.

Filled prompts are bold and green.

This is my bingo card for the fest:

baffled brave exhausted welcoming sincere
angry encouraging haughty bored amiable
playful peaceful Just Wing It cynical lyrical
harsh sad sedate friendly desperate
mournful amused melancholy candid creepy
