Inspiration Monday: Lukewarm Revenge

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Happy late Star Wars Day!

In other news, Redshirts is officially added to my list of Books All Writers Must Read (mental note: compile actual list of books all writers must read). Parental disclaimer: there are quite a few f-bombs and some suggestive dialogue, but OMIGOODNESS it’s brilliant. It’s like the sci-fi spoof version of Stranger Than Fiction and Inkheart put together, but also made me cry a little bit.

But it’s very unlikely there’s a copy of the book lying next to you just now, which gives you the excuse to read these other fun and/or moving pieces!

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:

LUKEWARM REVENGE

WILL POWER

MADMAN’S TRICKS

WOODEN KEY

ANTI-MAGIC
