Inspiration Monday: Battle of Wits

Ahhh, it’s good to be back. I am one of those creatures who loves routine. But look how many InMonsters were able to write pieces with the extra time!

Happy New Year, happy reading, happy writing!

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:

BATTLE OF WITS

ALIEN MYTH

SLEEPWALKING

BROKEN TIMELINE

ANSWERS IN SONG

  2. It was very hard not to do a Princess Bride spinoff with “Battle of Wits.” I wanted to, but I figured that’s what everyone else would be doing, but I couldn’t not use that prompt… so, I came up with something a bit different: http://thematticuskingdom.wordpress.com/2013/12/31/arguing-among-siblings/

  3. Here is my new year’s eve contribution. Hopefully, it won’t be as bad as Stanley’s. http://perceptivepotcluelesskettle.wordpress.com/2013/12/31/writers-block/

  4. Hi Stephanie,

    Could you please replace the InMon you have posted with the other one I did last week? Changes are afoot on my own site making that first post ineligible.
