Friday Writing Prompt

~ By Melina Kantor 

Hi Everybody!

Happy Friday.

I thought we’d change things up this week with a writing prompt. As I mentioned, Missed Connections, by Sophie Blackall, is a wonderful source of writing inspiration.

So, I went to Craigslist and chose an actual missed connection (a woman looking for a man) to use as a writing prompt:

A little over a week ago, you came into my restaurant to order a milkshake. I noticed your flashcards and asked if you were a server. We talked at length about bartending and writing and the fact that you’re older than me. For the record, I don’t care. You should have sealed the deal.

If this is you, you’ll remember my name.

Anyone up for turning this into a scene?

Give it a shot. I dare you! And then come back here and let us know how it went. Brownie points to those who share their actual scenes.

Have fun! 🙂

Melina writes contemporary women’s fiction with a pinch of oregano and a dash of chutzpah. She just returned from a two month trip to Crete and Israel, where she visited  family and friends did her best to turn her travels into research and inspiration for her writing. You can visit her at
