Inspiration Monday: The Man in the Radio

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Went to a library book sale over the weekend (I know, drool!). Check out my haul!


In total, 21 books for $18. And David at The Warden’s Walk will be pleased to know, all those on the side are Rosemary Sutcliff – even though most of them are paperback, and even though I already have Eagle of the Ninth. Because when it’s a dollar or less and somebody as smart as David raves about them, you’d better grab them. Here’s a close-up.


Now to the task of removing the library trappings and the ensuing excessive stickiness!

Meanwhile, you can read some other fiction absolutely free:

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:

  4. Jealous, am I, of your new acquisitions. I’ve been wanting to go to the book sales at the libraries lately, but so far, life has got in the way.

    Still struggling with Voice Week. I think I am intimidated… 😛

    • Yeah, I’m signed up to get an email alert every time a local library has a sale, but I don’t usually have time to go. This time it was one really close to me.

      Intimidated? Why? Try writing in different accents, with bad grammar, or for characters of different ages. That usually helps me.

      • Same here.

        Well, I’m probably just second-guessing myself into insensibility. I tend to do that. I wonder if the differences are really distinct enough, or if I should stretch myself in another direction, or what-have-you. Tongue-sticky-out-face.
