Inspiration Monday: pretend you don’t notice

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Finished reading the Hunger Games trilogy a week ago yesterday. Still recovering. Can I handle the movie? Time will tell.

Read some less-depressing stuff! /

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:

Pretend you don’t notice
Picking their noses
Musical hands
A fight to the life
Can’t see past my gun

  8. Is this prompt for the Monday coming up or was it for this past Monday? I love prompts and would enjoy participating if possible.

  11. Quick question: does it matter which prompt I use? (I’m new — found you through Craig’s blog). I’m hoping no because I went with magical hands and am nearly finished…
