Inspiration Monday XVII

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

We’ve had a little bit of everything this week, from poetry to steampunk. In other news, I wrote a new synopsis on Saturday, and it wasn’t terrible. You may applaud – and help me celebrate by reading the awesome pieces linked below!

Nimue

Pete

Patti

Marantha

Mike and two and flash fiction and one more

Kay

Chessie

Juan

PianoLover

Barb

Anna

Drew, InMon’s resident lyricist, has recorded a song from past prompt Paper Towns

I missed SAB Inspirations

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 exact prompt in your piece, and you can interpret the prompt(s) any way you like.

OR

No really; I need rules!

Okay; 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:

One day he shot me; we’ve been happy ever since*

Do you ever feel like glass?*

I miss someone I’ve never met*

One man’s tragedy, another man’s miracle

Silence followed
