Inspiration Monday: Pickpocket Change

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

This week in InMonville: A cold front! The temperature dropped a whole ten degrees (Fahrenheit) to 95 (35C)! So we’re sweltering but my ankles still ache like it’s cold. In other news, fancy donuts that taste vaguely like funnel cakes. Oh yes.

And now for our top stories:

Evan returns!

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:*

Pickpocket Change

Treasured Derelict

Thin Can

Gremlin Nebula

Eyes Down Here

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. Your ankles ache in the cold? You sound like an old war vet! Though, I suppose I can’t talk. My knees ache and creak. 😛

    The doughnut information, though… cruel. I may have to hold story bits hostage until you bring me some.

  2. It’s been a while since I took part in your weekly prompts. I participated last week, but, I forgot the ping back didn’t work on your site. Didn’t want to make that mistake twice, lol. Here’s my response for this week

  3. I chose “pickpocket change.”

    Thanks for reading!! I’ve been stupid busy the past few weeks and haven’t had much time to participate in the writing prompts. Hoping to get back into writing more very soon!

  4. For a change I’m not running last minute!

    (hope you guys like or at least don’t dislike it, I had an impulse and had no idea what the story was, literally one of those self-telling types!)

  5. Pickpocket Change and Gremlin Nebula both had a little bit to do with the story I came up with this week. Here’s “The Last Pick”:
