Inspiration Monday: tissue paper skin

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I am getting better at tossing the used tissues into the trash can without missing. Nine lie on the floor, but I’ve got the last three in. How many tissues before I must admit that I have a cold, and that I am not simply “trying not to get a cold”?

At least one more.

These will warm me up!

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:

tissue paper skin
don’t I know you?
the beginnings of strangeness
rip tide
last words
