Inspiration Monday: Truth decay

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

So last Friday I announced Voice Week! We’ve already got 9 Rewriters (including myself) raring to go. Check out the blogroll on the VW homepage to see who’s playing, and comment anywhere to let me know you want to join in. The fun starts September 26!

But what am I saying? The fun started a long time ago! And continues with this week’s InMon pieces:


Aparna and another

The Girl on the Ledge story continues over at WritingSprint






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.


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:

Truth decay
Black-hole eyes
The day the music died*
Welcome to the goldfish bowl
Children’s prayers

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. No blog? Email your piece to me at bekindrewrite (at) yahoo (dot) com.

Plus, get the InMon badge for your site here.

Happy writing!

*Today’s third prompt brought to you by Don McLean’sAmerican Pie, of course.

    Thank you, Stephanie. I loved all the prompts and, as usual, wish my schedule allowed for more writing time.

  16. I’m in high school and starting next year I will have to start looking at colleges. I know I want to find a college just for creative writing. I love writing stories of all sorts, and I know of a couple colleges that specialize in creative writing. But where would you recommend? Remember, I’m talking about creative writing, not journalism. Any suggestions?.
