Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #23

January 17, 2018

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

 

Uh-oh! Had someone done her wrong? A cheating lover? An obnoxious boss or back-stabbing co-worker? Maybe it was time to deal with childhood bullies. Or what if she’s just doing her job as an assassin. Could she be a psychotic killer? Does she have cabin fever after being snowed in for days? Had the local store run out of her favorite coffee/ice cream/coffee-flavored ice cream?

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.


Hump Day Kick Start – Flasher Edition

January 10, 2018

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

Hello, 2018! Has the year started with a jolt? Maybe better than you expected? It’s still early yet. Never know what each day will reveal.

So tell me about today’s prompt. Who are the, er, victims? Just regular fellas minding their own business enjoying an afternoon in the park? Perhaps the younger of the two is on a stakeout. Could the older gent be waiting on his Tinder date? Who is our flasher? Is she really naked? Has she been planted there to distract the men from a crime? Maybe she’s strapped with explosives. Or does she have something even more shocking on—latex, pasties, Justin Beiber bikini?

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.

Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #22

December 6, 2017

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

Intriguing prompt today. Who is he? What battle has he trained for? Who is his opponent? Why was this a mistake? Is he a soldier in a war realizing he’s on the wrong side, the evil side? A son fighting his estranged father only to recognize he was not ready and will lose? Maybe he has come to understand that he was never meant to win, but to be a sacrifice. What if his opponent is his enemy and his soul mate? What does he do?

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.

Hump Day Kick Start – Shadow Man Edition

November 29, 2017

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

A bit ominous for today’s prompt. Who is he? Should he be feared? Or is he a hero of sorts? Could he be a serial killer of the 40’s?  Is he a time traveler come to alter someone’s history? What if he is a prohibition era rum dealer? Maybe he is just making sure the pretty young woman gets on the right magical train, ala Hogwarts Express.

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.
