Inspiration Monday: Cosmic Lighthouse

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

So I get only about three hours of sleep Friday night, but still manage to make significant progress in the old WIP on Saturday. And then I seriously consider purposefully sleep-depriving myself next week in an attempt to repeat the effect.

Next thing you know I’ll be throwing salt over my shoulder and tugging on the same pair of stinky socks every time I sit down at the computer.

Hey, 16 folks signed up for Voice Week so far, not including myself. Still time! It starts on the 22nd.

Need inspiration? Here are some fun things to read – from some new faces, too!

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:






Want to share your Inspiration Monday piece? Post it on your blog and then give me the link in the comments below (I’ll also love you more if you link back to me); I’ll include a link to your piece in the next Inspiration Monday post. 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.)

Happy writing!

  1. Oh my freaking heck, I have never wanted to write fan-fiction before, but the thought of a war between a mess of famous fictional detectives… so much potential for awesome!

  2. No, I haven’t, but now that I know about it, I shall. Still, surely there’s plenty of new material to do another one. 😀

  3. I’ve been very lazy recently, my last blog post was three weeks ago. Still, here it is!

  4. Hey – I’ve got one for you! The prompts I used were Detective Wars, Bucket of Tea, and Intangible Proof: A Sort of Justice

  5. Hello again, I know it has been a really long time since I have shared anything, but here is something I wrote.

  6. Here’s my submission:

    I have surgery on the 22nd and I’m not sure if I can get a story to you before Monday. That said, I will be off the air for a couple of weeks. Lucy
