Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #10

May 17, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

 

A traitor can be many things—a betrayer, imposter, spy, deserter, rebel. A traitor can have many reasons for doing what they did—money, greed, politics, principal, sheer insanity, even love. For today’s prompt, who is this person? Who were they disloyal to? Why did they do it? Was it a matter of life and death? To climb a social ladder? For evil? To save all of humanity? Because there was only one ice cream bar/cheese stick/can of beer left in the fridge?

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

May 10, 2017

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

Uh-oh. What did he do?

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who is he? Who is she? Why is she pressing a gun into his forehead? Sure, this could be a jilted lover tired of his cheating ways. Or perhaps she just found out he’s been using her for her money and is none too happy about it. Maybe she is an assassin. But is she one of the good guys or does she work for an evil syndicate? What if she’s being blackmailed and is insisting her wealthy boss/ex/neighbor her save her brother/sister/child? Who knows, maybe he was late—again—picking her up for a date.

Tell me a tale or caption the pic, yo.

Would that be physically or mentally? Or would this be matters of the heart? Why does he plan to hurt her? Does he even know he will? With what tools will he use? Will she suffer through it? Survive? Succumb? Retaliate and return the favor?

Raise your hand. How many of us has at one time in our lives created a playlist based on a love interest?

So what’s up with today’s prompt? What is on the CD? Who does it belong to? Who is it intended for? Why is it on the ground? Is it filled with love songs? Songs about breakups, missed opportunities, or revenge? Could it be a picture collage from a stalker? Filled with poems from a dead lover? A scary manifesto? All my lost first drafts?

What do you think is on the CD? Tell me a tale or caption the pic.


Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #8

April 19, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

Ooh… What could this be all about?

Who is she and what service is she providing? Is she an assassin who gets the targets even the most hardened man passes over? Could she be a time jumper sent to correct “mistakes” that happen in the future? What if she were a sadistic psychiatric nurse, a hard-ass warden, or an adrenaline junkie stuntwoman for an A-list actress? Maybe she’s a baker for the PTO with mad cupcake decorating skills. Does she look forward to these calls or does she dread them?

Hump Day Kick Start – Cuffed Edition

April 12, 2017

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

I mean, who hasn’t been in this situation before? Right? Riiight?

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who is he and how did he end up cuffed? Good guy or a bad guy? Could he be the dangerous fugitive who left a wake of destruction and was finally caught by heroic Johnny Law? Or was he wrongly framed? If so, of what? Is he even in a police car? Perhaps not. Maybe he’s been snatched by his worst adversary and things are looking kinda grim for him. Is he from this world, the future, the past, or another dimension? What if he is playing along, biding time, waiting for the right moment to bust out of the cuffs and wreak havoc/get revenge/save someone? Maybe a sexy detective has him under arrest for stealing her heart. Haha! Sappy, I know…

Caption the pic or give me your take.

Ooh! Makes the mind wonder what kind of person this is. Vampire, superhero/villain, scientist, god/goddess, immortal hunter, the list could go on. What kind of people would go to such extremes as to bury someone alive? Scared villagers? A family with a secret? A group of wayward kids screwing up summer vacation? Why is the undead back? To seek revenge? Expose the real enemy? Return their overdue Blockbuster tape?
