September Prompt: In Order

It’s the start of term and classes are getting underway. Whether you make yourself a little list, exist in a state of orderly chaos or resort to a rather supercilious enchanted homework planner, that means a whole lot of organising to do to make sure you get everything done on time.

To get you in the right mind-set, I’d like you to write me a story (200 words or more) about someone getting organised. It could be an event they’re trying to pull off, a mess they’re trying to clear up or even just an attempt to stack the dish washer properly. You could get especially creative and tell your story through lists, schedules or notes-to-self. Anything you can think of!

You’ll earn 20 beans for completing this prompt as well as it counting towards the chance to snag our shiny Quill and Ink award.

There is no deadline as such for these prompts but if you’d like it to count towards your chance of earning the award for a specific year, we’ll need it by the end of that school year. If you’re comfortable sharing, then post below. If not, email your story to us via hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (without the spaces). Oh and remember it’s a good idea to check through your piece carefully for spelling and grammatical errors as they make it harder for people to properly enjoy your work.
