Inspiration Monday: a dying art

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Home again, but Internet will be spotty again Thursday through Saturday (happy Thanksgiving everyone!). Things still look good for a post this Friday though (it’ll just be scheduled). Enough of my boring life; read some of these great stories: I know you’ll get sucked in.








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:

A dying art
The stars look different*
No one remembers but me
Can’t find it with a map
Error message

    It continues the story that was inspired by last week’s prompt, but it also intertwines with “No one remembers but me”.
