Weekend Writing Prompt #1 – Outcast

A word and photo prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  Use the prompts separately or together.  It’s up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes (it’s not a competition) but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

Prose Challenge – Write a story in less than 500 words that is inspired in some way by the picture above AND includes the word “outcast” in it somewhere.

Poetry Challenge – Write a seven line poem where the first letter of each line spells out “outcast” when read from top to bottom.  The theme of the poem should somehow tie in to the definition of the word.

Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!
