Writing prompts are a great way to warm up for writing. Even if what you write is not all to wonderful, it is a good way to exercise your brain. Every Tuesday I post a prompt and my response. I encourage you to write a response too. Enjoy!
Start your story with this line: Her laugh broke the silence. (Source: CreativeWritingPrompts.com #343)
Her laugh broke the silence. The sound rang through the halls like a thousand tinkling bells. Those who had never heard the princess laugh paused in their work to enjoy it. Slowly the echo of the laugh faded.
In the throne room the court jester rose from his bow, a triumphant smile on his face. The princess clapped her hands gleefully.
“Again, again!” She pleaded.
The jester shook his head and the tiny bells on his hat tingled. “My dear princess, I am yours to command.” He bowed. He leaned forward until his nose was inches from the floor, then swung his arms wildly. Ducking his head he rolled, landing on his feet.
The princess laughed again and all was right with the world.
