Inspiration Monday: this is how it starts

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Sorry I’m late, folks. My Internet was down last night, as was/is the Internet of many others, apparently. For a few minutes, I sat in front of my computer wondering if this was how the apocalypse would begin. Then I went to bed early. I think I have another cold.

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:

this is how it starts
written in code
off again
