Inspiration Monday: A Word is Worth a Thousand Pictures

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Have you ever seen the show Kiss Me Kate? I just saw it this weekend. It’s about a bunch of actors putting on a musical version of The Taming of the Shrew, and they’ve rewritten it with a bunch of references to other Shakespeare plays. There was actually the line “Get thee to a notary!”

Have you ever laughed so hard in a public place that you embarrassed yourself?

Yeah.

Stop looking at me like that and read 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.

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:

A WORD IS WORTH A THOUSAND PICTURES

TUMBLING

TRUST YOUR FEAR

GREEN PLANET

SEALED LIPS

  2. The story didn’t quite go where I thought it would, and I ended up having to twist the words around a bit to get them to fit in… but I think it worked out okay, in the end: http://thematticuskingdom.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/the-cave/
