Make-A-Story™ Monday - This Week's Writing Prompt

Writing to spec – you’ve heard the term. It means writing what the publisher wants. Can you do it? In our new feature - Make-A-Story™, we ask you to create a story with these elements. The story can be set in any time frame, any length, must adhere to our guidelines and have our standard Christian world view.

A trip to one of the western USA states
An odd thing on a passing car
An epic tourist trap (can be fictitious)


  1. I have a question about your passport to romance series. Would it be better if you received the submission through the website before I attend the NWCWA conference next week or wait until I can pitch to you in person?

  2. Mama 'G' - Don't be shy - do both. That way, I get to look at it before I meet you, and then, we can meet and chat about the story at the conference, too. :) Looking forward to seeing you! Blessings.

  3. Hi Jamie,
    I'm Mama 'G's sister-in-law and will be attending the conference and pitching to you as well. So...I'm just going to jump in and do the same thing. I'm not least not too shy to be a bit presumptuous. Perhaps you will have time to peek at my submission before you come on out to Washington. If not, I'll catch you there. This is such a fun little writer's conference. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
    In His Hands,
    Kristen Joy Wilks
