Writing Prompt

Hey Everyone!

It’s Sir Drewster III, on Memorial day, and I am not at a BBQ. Sad times.

Since I am not enjoying the grilled meats of the holiday, I thought I would send out my first writing prompt. I got to thinking though, and decided that was a little lame. So I am doing something a little different, a Scene Prompt.

Here it is.

I have been waiting brother. I knew I had to wait, bide my time until you were ready. I have wished many times that we had been born twins, but destiny had other plans.

The time has come to show you ours.

– End Scene

Have fun writing!

Writers of aJonester

Our Team

This is the initial writing team of aJonester. Thanks for the support.

Andrew

Thoughts by Andrew will be the more random pieces of aJonester. These posts will consist of the random thoughts that occur during my day.

I will also be the moderator of the other writers, making sure they stay in line and on topic.

Addictive Andrew

Addictive Andrew has several topics of expertise. These include movies, food, and popular technology. If not directly talking about one of these three topics, he will most likely relate back to at least one of them.

Sir Drewster III

I found Sir Drewster III on a Saturday morning during a waffle eating challenge. As I watched him complete the challenge, which many doubted he could finish, I knew I had to have him on the site.

He is an odd ball, who is very fantastical. He tends to make up situations that usually involve him in one way or another. Sometimes he is telling the truth, sometimes he is being fictitious. He is the main source of story ideas on aJonester. These thoughts may revolve around writing prompts, writing techniques, or other topics related to the writing world.

Shubbs

This is our youngster writer on the site. He told me that Shubbs was a nickname his father gave him when he was very young. He brings a child like appreciation to the site, giving the older generations a good view into being a young in this day and age.

He is a little obsessed with video games and cartoons that seem to be a little out of his age range, but he is surprisingly mature so he says it is okay for him to play and watch them.

Andy

Andy is our romantic of the bunch. He seems to be a little more sensitive than the other writers but is a very valuable member of aJonester as he makes sure all the other writers are aware of what the best solutions are when it comes to relationships.

The majority of the poems that are posted will probably be by Andy.

Drew

Drew is the complete opposite of Andy. Where Andy is sensitive, Drew is emotionally unavailable. He seems to be the most successful with women so we endure his stories of his weekend conquests to hear his advice in this category.

Even though the other writers tease him a lot, Drew has some nuggets of inspirational thought some time. I will try to keep his posts to the more helpful nuggets.

Pipes

Pipes is teased a little more than Drew due to his Bro-like nature. He is an expert on everything involving a gym and supplements. His mass of muscles may label him as a Gym Rat, but he is to explain the more complicated workouts in a way that the average person can understand and dive into what the best supplements are.

His experience comes from working at BodyBuilding.com for almost three years.

Mr. Jones

Mr. Jones is our financial advisor. He worked for Citi Cards for almost three years as a debt collector. He really can’t help but talk about finance. He is a great addition to the aJonester team.

The First Thought

To start, some simple descriptive words of myself.

– Writer

– Candy Addict

– Technology Nerd

Though unoriginal, these attributes are the main talking points of who I am.

I decided my thoughts were crowding out the more pressing issues of my day. To make it easier on myself and the people around me, these thoughts will now be emptied into the nothingness of the unread blog.

I hope not to bore anyone that does happen upon these words. I can only promise that I will be as honest as fictionally possible and try to avoid the nothingness of the everyday.

I feel like this post has already steered away from these goals.

I will end with a favorite saying,

Monkey Balls.

Vocab Thought

Fictioneer: Fiction Writer who plants the seeds of innovation in the minds of their readers.

This term brings to mind a writer stacking words together, building their ideas word by word, to finally end up with something their readers can go explore.

This term also seems to fit my definition of what good fiction is all about. Concepts of the mind that are so far out there that they are deemed fantastical, but they are then wrapped up in a good story that connects the reader to the writer’s thoughts of fantasy.

Arthur C. Clarke said it better.

“Every revolutionary idea seems to evoke three stages of reaction. They may be summed up by the phrases: 1- It’s completely impossible. 2- It’s possible, but it’s not worth doing. 3- I said it was a good idea all along.”

Applying this to the Fictioneer definition seems to clear up this Vocab Thought.

When a Fictioneer outlines an idea that makes the reader first think that it is totally impossible, the seed is planted. After the seed is watered with some deep pondering or annoying nagging, the idea grows into the realm of possibility. By the end of this process, the reader realizes that the idea has grown into the realm of the possible, and has even started plans on how to take it from just an idea to reality.

This process could take years or even generations. If a writer can be termed a Fictioneer, time won’t matter. The only thing that would matter is the innovation that their words bring about.

That is all for now.
