Inspiration Monday: First Think in the Morning

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

I finished Before the Golden Age – that Asimov-compiled 1930s sci-fi anthology I told y’all about. Long, but great read. I feel much more educated about my genre now.

And I’m regretting that I didn’t by the Golden Age anthologies that were there at the same library book sale…why, why, why??? A guy actually picked one up and was like “Here, here’s another one in the series,” and I was like “No, it’s okay; one’s enough.”

What was wrong with me???

After tsking in my general direction, go enjoy some InMonster magic:

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:

FIRST THINK IN THE MORNING

DEAD RINGER

EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE

NOVA CANE
