Video - One Word Prompt


Video - One Word Prompt

The word that you have to include in this prompt is "VIDEO"


A video, also known as the thing that is trying to distract you as you read this. The video is the gun to the sword, the car to the horse, and yes, the video to the radio star. Thanks video, for ruining everything about literature.

Rules - (if you want to call them that)

  • Make the piece shorter than 1000 words.

  • It could be fiction or non-fiction.

Here are some suggestions for you to get going - (or that you can completely ignore)

  1. Make another comparison between two things, that has one made the other obsolete.

  2. Write an updated version of"Video Killed The Radio Star"

  3. Blame videos for everything since blaming a man on the screen who you don't know or will never meet is an easy scapegoat for all of life's problems. Like beer, we don't know if the video is to blame for everything or give credit.

What I would write with this prompt - (that would probably be wrong)

I'd go nonsense here. All non-sense and talk about a video the size of a planet. What? Yeah. I was thinking about the size of the sun too.

Write a prompt relating two things that I would never even consider, somehow include phrases only kids know (or even care about), or talk about beer for some stupid reason.

Whichever you do, try to enjoy it, and remember that everyone will only be half-reading your work anyway. Their eyes are on a video.

VIDEO is your one word for today's prompt.

Good luck with your writing.
