Inspiration Monday: the final cut

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Okay, folks, Voice Week starts ONE WEEK FROM TODAY. There’s still time to sign up; just leave me a comment anywhere. If you’ve already signed up, please check the list on the right side of this page for your name – I want to make sure I didn’t miss you!

If you have any questions, leave a comment or email me at bekindrewrite (at)

Inspiration Monday will be postponed during Voice Week, which means you’ll have two weeks with these prompts instead of just one! New prompts on October 8.

Some new InMonsters this week! Be sure to pay them a visit. You guys are all so talented.

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:

Shaken, not stirred
