Inspiration Monday: Squandered Vision

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

I was just shopping around for an audio book to keep me company on an upcoming drive. I looked at a couple of inspirational/historical books I’ve been meaning to read but meh. I really just wanted something fun. Then I thought of Redshirts.

I looked it up. And it is narrated by…

Will Wheaton.

Anybody know a good field of tulips? I feel like I need to be skipping through one right now.

But I’ll contain my joy and tell you to read these lovelies:

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:

SQUANDERED VISION

SEE IN THE DARK

BROKEN  CLOCK

ILLEGAL SPICE

ORNITHOPTER
