Inspiration Monday: you only live twice

1 Flares Filament.io 1 Flares ×

Facebook folks: Evenstarwen recently asked if there was an InMon Facebook group. There isn’t, but how many of you would be interested in having a BeKindRewrite Facebook page and/or InMon group? Would you find it easier to connect with the community through Facebook, or do blog comments, etc., suffice? Tell me yay or nay in the comments!

And read some lovely work:

Chris and another

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.

OR

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:

You only live twice
Single and taken
Nobody films a funeral
Inner itch
Mythical connection*
 

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!

* Mythical connection – inspired by Good Mythical Morning.

  1. FB – nah! So much tosh, inconsequential drivel. Moves the focus away from the source – here. I have a FB page, and spend about 5 minutes a week on it.

  2. I agree with KP.
    I’ve got an FB page and spend very little, if any time on it.
    Maybe I’m missing something – not sure what though.

    • I guess it depends on who else you know is on it. I know people who get practically all their news on Facebook: who’s dating whom, who’s engaged, getting married, having a baby, starting a new job, died recently, etc., etc. And there’s a lot of sharing of funny pictures and insightful quotes and cool articles. And games. But it’s not very conducive to productivity. : /

  3. Afraid I don’t have Facebook…it’s a nay for me personally, but I think it provides a good opportunity to spread the word. As long as prompts and links are still on the blog I think it’s a good idea!

    • Yeah, prompts and links would still be here. But I suppose it would help spread the word in that those who have FB pages would be able to tell their friends about InMon more easily – when they like the page it will appear in their feed.

  5. ms. stephanie, i am responding to your prompts this week, but i fear that i may not exactly be able to meet the deadline! you see, my muse took one look at your prompts, gave a decidedly wicked grin, and laid it on me! in short, dear lady, i fear the tale resulting from your prompts may be more than a mere scribbling, for my muse is still whispering, even after giving me an entire page. so i will let you base your judgment on what i have, and if you like it, you may want to check back now and then to see where my muse’s whispers lead me.

    (woman, this is not the first time your prompts have set my muse off, several of my other stories done in response to them are sitting, patiently waiting for their chance to shine.)

    wishing you much happiness, luck and good health, and sending you a humongerous hugglz,

    marantha/aka/maradjen

    ps…here is the link to the first installment, written, and revised (twice) just since first seeing the prompts when i got the notifier…http://wordwriter1958.wordpress.com/2012/08/21/you-only-live-twicepart-one/.

    I WUBS YOUS! 😉

  7. Hello friends,

    I was out of town last week and sorely sorry I haven’t gotten around to reading anything in a while. If work is slow this week, I will rectify this.

  9. The Facebook group shouldn’t be mandatory for participation, but it would be helpful in getting more bloggers to join. I guess I’m greedy for more bloggy goodness and want to read more different takes on the prompts. 😛

    Here’s mine for the week: To my future husband, about a secret longing

  11. Here’s mine for this week: http://elmowrites.wordpress.com/2012/08/23/inspiration-monday-nobody-films-a-funeral/
    I’m not fussed about facebook – I use it for keeping in touch with friends, but I’m not very good with facebook groups and tend to forget about them for long periods of time! So my vote is to stick with blogs.
    Sorry I haven’t been very good at reading everyone’s the past couple of weeks. Hopefully I’ll have time today / tomorrow to catch up.
