Inspiration Monday: Cybernetic Mysticism

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

This week on the InMon web: Rather dark and hysteria-inducing fan-made trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Lemony Snicket series (but still not using the correct eye motif?). In other news, why is it that superheroes are significantly less attractive when they get their real suits? Go back to your cuddly-looking black sweater, please.

And now for our top stories:

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:

Cybernetic Mysticism*

Elevator Club

The Any Key

Crayon Crown**

Ultraviolent Light

** Incidentally, some people pronounce “crayon” like “crown” instead of “cray-on.” Those people are wrong.

  3. Here’s one for you, The Elevator Club:

    Let me know what you think!

  4. Hey Stephanie, I posted my story back on the 10th, but something went amiss!

  5. Sorry I was unable to finish my story for cybernetic mysticism. I fell Sunday and broke my ankle. Had surgery on ankle and still in hospital. Surgery on knee postponed. So much bad luck!!!!
