Inspiration Monday: Don’t Look Up

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Okay, I just saw someone refer to last night’s game as the “Superb Owl.” It is difficult for me to express how awesome this is, especially as a copywriter forced to use phrases like “Big Game” and “Game Day” to avoid trademark infringement.

And oh look! InMonstories!

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:

DON’T LOOK UP

  1. Fun, fun, fun. I’ve missed these the last two weeks. I might have to go back and check the prompt words and see if I’m struck by further inspiration now that I’m back into the swing of writing. But, in the meantime, here’s my current one: http://thematticuskingdom.wordpress.com/2014/02/04/a-valuable-lesson/
