Inspiration Monday: Childhood Hero

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

And, it’s been another week! Last weekend I bought a toy cowboy gun (complete with sheriff’s badge), watched an episode of Sherlock, finished another Wodehouse, and wrote another conversation. Ever fear there are too many conversations in your book?

Never mind. Read some flash fiction:



Carrie and another



Gah! Missed WritingSprint

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.

  1. There are definitely too many conversations in my book, but then, I like conversations! 😛

    Anywho, which Wodehouse did you finish?

    • A collection of stories called “Wodehouse is the Best Medicine.” You’ve got me addicted. I seem to buy another Wodehouse every time I go to Half Price. I have five now. I will probably attack the Jeeves Omnibus next.

  3. Happy writing indeed! Wasn’t sure where I was going with this one until it was all down in type: Hope you enjoy this bit of silliness as much as I enjoyed writing it.

  5. Here we go, a poem for you reading pleasure “The Dawn Chorus” which is an attempt at an urban idyll:

  7. Absolutely – the stories I used to write were bascailly radio plays. I’m getting better, I hope, but today’s InMon story is all conversation, so maybe not!

    • Well, conversation’s not bad, especially in flash fiction. Also means it will be easier to turn into a movie if Hollywood ever comes calling. I just feel like I need a little more action. I just tend to find conversation more fun. Why is that???
