Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #6

March 22, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

 

Now THIS…this could go in so many directions. What are the side effects? Are they mental, physical, or something entirely different? Small and unassuming or epic? Who are they affecting? Human or beast? Just one person, an entire population, or all civilization?

Share your ideas and/or post your creations, even if it’s just a line or two. I’d love to hear them.


Hump Day Kick Start – The Catch Edition

March 15, 2017

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

In honor of this week’s St. Patrick’s Day, I give you one of my favorite Irishmen for today’s hump day.

What’s the story? Did he fish out a selkie from the sea? Is she alive? Why was she in the water? Had she fallen overboard? Was just out for a swim when she got caught in his net? Maybe she purposely swam into his net in an elaborate plot to destroy his reputation/go along with him on a treasure hunt/be on the next Deadliest Catch television show. Could she be his Moby Dick he’s finally caught?

Tell me a story or caption the pic. And Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Oops! Sorry about that. Or am I?

Revenge, retribution, vindication, vengeance—what could drive someone to stage an accident? How far would they go? A minor mishap? Years of them, perhaps? Or maybe something more…permanent. You tell me. Share your ideas and/or post your creations, even if it’s just a line or two. I’d love to hear them.

Because I have a growing obsession with this man…

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who is he and what’s going on? Yeah, he could be a bartender. Or maybe he’s a detective about to give an informant a beat down or put a rookie in his place. Suppose he’s about to deliver some harsh news to a friend. Could this just be another night of trying to forget? If so, what demons haunt him? Is he alone or is that glass for me, er, I mean someone special?

What’s your take or simply caption the pic.
