Inspiration Monday: mirror mask

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I re-watched Mirror Mask last week. Neil Gaiman. Jim Henson. The really useful book. Does it get any better than that? So anyway, all the prompts are from Mirror Mask this week. : )

Lots of great work this week. But you may need to read some of these with a tissue.

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:

Mirror mask
Remember what your mother told you
Look out the window
Don’t let them see you’re afraid
I’ve got a tower
