Weird is wonderful, wouldn’t you say? #WeirdVSS is a Twitter-based writing prompt service solely for the weird and dark, run only on Wednesdays. Think H.P. Lovecraft, Shirley Jackson, Laird Barron, etc.

All you gotta do to be a part of it is…

1) Wait for the word prompt, which I’ll tweet from my Twitter account @nspetrou at 12 AM on Wednesday AWST (i.e. 11 AM on Tuesday EST).

2) Write a very short and very weird story using the word prompt (all derivatives of the word are welcome; you can hashtag it if you’d like)

3) Add the hashtag #WeirdVSS

4) Tweet your story on Wednesday (time zones don’t matter; it just has to be Wednesday for you)

5) Wait and see if your story is one of my favourites of the week (you can find all my previous favourites at the bottom of this page)

6) Make a blood offering in preparation for next week’s prompt

That’s it! Enjoy!

The #WeirdVSS logo was created for me by Noah Peloquin.
