Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #32

June 13, 2018

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

I wonder what the benefits are for a job like that.

We know what our prompt does for a living, but why does he choose this profession? What led him to it? Who is “she”? His ex? His sister? A whistleblower? The woman who was his savior or mentor? The girl he deeply loves but had to give up? Will he be able to finish the job?

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 – Sailor’s Kiss Edition

June 6, 2018

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

Happy summer, y’all.

Who’s hitting the beach? You know this salty wench will be. Anyone hoping to see a pirate or a mermaid? Find buried treasure? Catch a killer wave or a crispy burn?

Tell me about today’s prompt. Sure, she could be a siren about to kiss the life from a hapless sailor, dragging him to the bottom. Or maybe she is a selkie saying a sad goodbye to her Scotsman. Could they be young lovers frolicking in the calm surf? Does danger lurk beneath the surface? A large shark, perhaps? *shutters as the tell-tale music to Jaws plays*

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 #31

May 30, 2018

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

 

Well, that could ruin anyone’s day. Who is our prompt? What has happened to her? What is falling apart, again?

Could she be she a detective just trying to make it through a day alive? Had another relationship just soured? Maybe she’s a time jumper tasked with finding and destroying her evil creator. What if she were a vampire being hunted by a sexy vampire hunter who she has an on-again-off-again relationship with?

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 – Ledge Edition

May 23, 2018

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

It’s a long way down. What’s going on in today’s prompt? Who is our guy? Why is he on the ledge? Is it just an awesome view? Does he think he’s some kind of god and he’s watching all the insignificant people below as if they were ants? Had he just done something unredeemable that has him contemplating life? Is he playing a cat and mouse game with the law? Could he be a brooding superhero? Is Van Halen being a bad influence?

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 #30

May 16, 2018

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

Makes ya wonder. Who is she that her entire life might be a lie? Is she someone the government has created? Someone that holds a special significance to the future or past that could destroy the world? Is her husband lying about himself to protect her? Or is he an immediate danger to her? Had bumping her head returned her to her true self?

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 – Caliente in the Cantina

May 2, 2018

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

Caliente!

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who are they and what’s going on? Did they just meet and are in a whirlwind adventure/romance à la Romancing the Stone? Does one of them mean to do the other harm? Are they the Romeo and Juliet of a Mexican town, destined for a tragic ending? Could they be practicing for a spot on Dancing with the Mariachis?

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