• Writer's Training Ground #012: "Maud Pie"

    This is a WTG with a mare who likes rocks. It is also a WTG with rocks.

    This week's prompts are below the break.

    In Equestria, there's no such thing as a "simple" rock farmer.

    While it was nice to meet Pinkie and her friends, Maud Pie must now return to her regular life. She never did let Pinkie know about her other side...

    Thanks to Kyle for the prompt!

    Read this if you're new. Take a prompt. Write a story about it. Send it in. We'll publish it.

    One of this week's prompts is more open-ended. Send us prompt ideas after the episode every week. We may use them, too.

    Da Rulez:
    • Keep the content appropriate as defined by our submission guidelines.
    • Keep it between 1,000 - 7,000 words. >Greentexts and doorstoppers should apply elsewhere!
