Inspiration Monday II

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Thanks and kudos to Debra at Find An Outlet for participating in last week’s Inspiration Monday. Read her (two!) fantastic pieces here. If I missed any participants, let me know in the comments!


The Rules

There are none. Read the prompts, get inspired, write something. No word count minimum or maximum. You don’t have to include the prompt in your piece, and you can interpret the prompt(s) any way you like.

No really; I need rules!

If you work better with guidelines: write 200-500 words on the prompt of your choice. You may either use the prompt as the title of your piece or work it into the body of your piece. You must complete it before 6 pm CST on the Monday following this post.


The Prompts

I ignored the raised eyebrow of the checkout girl

Time capsule from the future

The answer, one day too late

Saved by a broken law

Everyday villain

If you want to share your Inspiration Monday piece, post it on your blog and link back to today’s post; I’ll include a link to your piece in the next Inspiration Monday post.

Happy writing!

  1. Thanks Stephanie! These new prompts are good, a few of them are calling to me already! You should write one too so we can see how it’s really done…

  3. I chickened out last week, lol. Debra did a great job of hers. Perhaps I’ll give one a bash this week.

  4. I had so much fun with these. I didn’t realize that this could work so well. Usually if I use a prompt, it’s a lyric that I like off of a song.

    Thanks again for the prompts. They got my imagination working overtime.
