Inspiration Monday: Future Relic

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Despite it being a long day, I’m feeling rather good lately. Rather alive. These university podcasts are quite bracing, and I’ve just started reading Niven’s Ringworld as well as Nathan Bransford’s new book on writing. What are y’all reading?

I hope it’s this:







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:

Happy writing!

  1. Hi Stephanie,

    I couldn’t stop once I started! The post is scheduled to appear Thursday around 7. Check it out then!


  2. Apparently I am reading the same thing as you! I found it in my favorite bookshop.

    • Ringworld? How funny. It’s a bit on the hard side of science fiction for me (so many sciency explanations!), but I find the idea of breeding for luck quite amusing.

  4. Have a mentioned before that there is something about these prompts that always seems to bring out the silly in my writing? I have? Oh, well, they do. It’s worth repeating.
    Here’s my latest contribution:

  6. I’m back involved, and used two of the prompts this time just to make up for my absence. Bit of a long one, I’m afraid. The story just seemed to keep going. Also, my 2014 challenge is to vary length a bit more, so I suppose it’s a good thing. As long as I don’t try your patience too much reading it!
    Happy 2014!
