Inspiration Monday: the final threshold

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

If you’ve been following my Twitter feed, you know that this is, sadly, the very last Inspiration Monday. I’m moving to Bielefeld, Germany to pursue my Ph.D. in Conspiratorial Narrative. They told me I can’t have Internet there. Does that seem fishy to you?

So let’s enjoy the work of the InMonsters one last time. Remember to savor every word!







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:







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. (I do reserve the right to NOT link to a piece as stated in my Link Discretion Policy.)

Plus, get the InMon badge for your site here.

Happy writing!

  1. What a great opportunity, but said to know this is ending. I should probably jump on for the last gasp then.

    • It’s not actually ending, but I’m glad the thought inspired you to join in! I look forward to reading your work. : )

  2. No internet? Oh my! Wishing you all the best. Your blog has always been a treat.

    • I’m not actually going anywhere. A little prank. ; ) Your comments and work have always been a treat! Keep it up!

  3. Best regards on your studies. Once you are addicted to the Internet and blogging, can you actually break the habit? I have to admit I have never previously heard of conspirational narrative. We will miss you.

  4. You know, April 1st is a tough time for congenitally gullible people like me. And people wonder why I’ve become so suspicious in my old age. 😉

    I was torn between being very sad at the thought of you not blogging for a lengthy period, and being very excited that there is such a thing as a PhD in something called Conspiratorial Narrative. I mean… seriously! Then I thought “she has a Twitter? Is she more nuts than I thought?” and so I clicked the link.
    Well played.

  5. Hi Steph,
    You almost had me there – you’ll have to check out my post to see what happened next. It’s here:
    Glad you’re hanging around!

    • Okay, so it was an April Fools'(Fool’s) Day post. The Internet, obviously, bunk, but how about Germany, PhD. and the rest. Is there a conspirational narrative?

      • You were right, I wouldn’t be able to shed my Internet addiction. ; ) Bielefeld is a town in Germany rumored not to exist, and I made up all the Conspiratorial Narrative stuff. Though wouldn’t that be interesting?

    • Me, too, Jen!

  6. Here’s my first, Bigfoot:

    This year is also the first time I’ve participated in the A to Z Challenge, and I foresee a large number of links coming this way…

  10. You caught me with this one.
    And my first thoughts were WHAT will I do without your dose of inspiration 😀
    Here is my piece for this week 🙂

  11. Conspiratorial Narrative? That sounds awesome! No Internet? Maybe it’s a conspiracy? 😉

    Here’s my story for this week:
