Inspiration Monday: deadly paper

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

InMon is officially one year old tomorrow!

For this special occasion, I’ll drudge up a little something I wrote in the intro months ago:

Happy InMon to us, happy InMon to us. Click the links they are genius! Happy InMon to us!











Whoops! Missed ScriptorObscura

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:

Deadly paper
The city that never wakes
Last place you look
They took it away

Want to share your Inspiration Monday piece? Post it on your blog and link back to today’s post (here’s a video on how to do it); 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!

  11. You’re going to think I am playing into what I wrote, BUT the truth is stranger than fiction…

    I tried to listen to the video on how to post here, but I put my hearing amplifier some place safe this evening and was unable to hear it even at 100 per cent sound. Will find it tomorrow.. actually today…
    when I can see better with day light and not just the lamp.

    I have posted at

    Will be sure to listen to the video as soon as I can find my hearing thingy.
