Inspiration Monday: The Dying Sky

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

MAY 27 EDIT: Looking for the May 26 prompts? They’re coming tonight! Stay tuned.

I’m behind on everything else, but I DID walk 5k (I don’t run), clean out my closet, remove the harddrive from a 1996 computer, and see Taming of the Shrew under the stars over the weekend.

What did you all do over the weekend?

There’s always good reading material!

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:

No blog? Email your piece to me at stephanie (at) bekindrewrite (dot) com. (I do reserve the right to NOT link to a piece as stated in my Link Discretion Policy.)

  1. Good prompts this week, I did something a little different and wrote something very short for each prompt.

    Ill set it to go live tomorrow.

  2. Sounds like a constructive weekend! It’s so weird… I’ve been needing to remove a hard-drive from a computer from the early 2000s…

  3. I went silly. I had to, really. Not only was it time, but the prompt made me do it:

  4. Here we go – The Dragon Answered – some very short fantasy for you!

  5. Here is my link. 2nd submission to this site. Glad I am back in the mood to write.

  6. Here’s my submission for Inspiration Monday!

    It’s called ‘The Before Times’
