Inspiration Monday: Things I Said to the Doorman

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Don’t you love it when plot points work out and you start thinking that maybe you really can finish this novel some time in the next century? I do.

Let’s celebrate!

Whoops, missed Elmo

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.

OR

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:

THINGS I SAID TO THE DOORMAN

PRETEND YOU DIDN’T SEE

WATCH WITH A TICK

SOME DAY

COUNTING SECONDS

  7. Hope it’s okay if I link up with you all this week – had fun trying to work in all the prompts. (You know, it was my 1st time, so I worked really hard to impress you & not be voted off the island – lol.)
