Inspiration Monday: things you can’t hide

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Today I shopped for felt picks and sugar packets, for a new friend and an old one.

Brilliant work this week:


Chris and another





Parul wrote a piece for each of three prompts, and will hopefully complete the story with the remaining prompts this week: Fishing for InsultsTime Crunch, Extra Wishes





I actually wrote one – yes, really.

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:

Things you can’t hide
Slippery when dry
Mountain of sugar
Astro plane
The monster saved me

  13. I am still confused, but not as much on how to link…Bren I sent you a separate email….
    and I think I mentioned WEEKS ago that I got an amplifier so I could hear your instructions…that works WONDERFUL….if anyone needs one, I got it at Walgreens in the
    things sold on TV for under $20 and am amazed how often I’ve used it.
    will try to relearn the task of linking…sorry I’m so dense on it. Old dogs and ladies can learn new tricks, so will keep trying.

    Enjoy your prompts,
