Inspiration Monday: united stares

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Ah, Labor Day. Nothing like a three-day weekend to get some real writing done. Oh, gosh, though. I didn’t do any Voice Week writing and it’s less than a month away! Gahhh…

Read for some super fun times:






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:

United stares
Stage whisper
We will never be rid of him**
Funny you should ask

  5. Great prompts this week! I wanted to use them all. I went with United Stares in the end, and I’d love to hear what people think:

  6. Here’s one from me, I think I’ve another in me tonight, there’s a phrase that’s been playing through my mind all day that I couldn’t shoehorn into this piece: Shadows in the Forest

  7. Managed to get another one written, this time using United Stares:
    Monster Hunter, Second Class

  9. Hello friends,

    Incredibly short one this week, that goes nowhere really. I found myself starting to move into a rut and have tried to play around a little.
