Inspiration Monday: fear vaccine

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Ah. Baseball season at last. Letting it suck me in again. Yet another bad habit I picked up from my dad, along with picking at my fingers, working through lunch, and asking the waiter to replace Triple Sec with Gran Marnier in my margaritas.

Develop better habits. Read short fiction:

Eric (missed last week) and another (non InMon, but related) and Eric again








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:

Fear vaccine
Rapidly unraveling
Messed up on purpose
Death by piano
Count the windows
