Inspiration Monday: Friendly Fire

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

The glory of three-day weekends: resting on Sunday to write a ton on Monday. Also, I scored gold at two different Half Price Books sales: an illustrated Hobbit, a hardcover Dune (forty cents, baby!), a couple of Wodehouses (thanks, Anne, now I’m addicted), and more, including What If the Earth Had Two Moons? which I’ve been wondering for years.

I’m excited about reading them all, which is what you should be about these:






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. Hey Steph, for some reason your domain-bot doesn’t believe I’m not SPAM…I keep commenting and never appearing. One of the episodes of The River of Crawling Death had some InMon prompts in it – had Fortune favoured the coward in it…
