Inspiration Monday: New Names

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Alright, me hearties, if it please you to take a finer challenge upon yourselves, look no further than this special edition of Inspiration Monday, whereupon if you wish to limit yourself to writing only 50 words, you are welcome to do so.

But, as always, the rules are only rules if you wish them to be. There is no spoon.

But look, there are InMonsters!

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:

NEW NAMES

LEARNING TO FAIL

UNREAL

SHORT ARM OF THE LAW

WRONG VICTIM

  1. I liked the extra challenge of writing a 50 word story. This one is all dialogue. Hope you enjoy it.

  2. I thought about doing a 50 word entry, because I do enjoy the micro fiction challenges, but I wanted to tell this story instead: http://thematticuskingdom.wordpress.com/2014/04/15/a-short-long-mix-up/

  3. Here’s my submission, from The Sapient Chronicles
