Inspiration Monday: Confined to Quarters

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Dug my car out of three inches of solid ice this morning, but still didn’t go anywhere today. Generally, not leaving the house all day is one of my favorite pastimes, but after four days, I’m ready to breathe the free air again. Here’s hoping the roads are clear tomorrow!

Meanwhile, you can always cozy up with some InMon stories:

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:

  2. So sorry you are confined, but glad it allowed you time to come up with these prompts! Here’s mine:
