Hump Day Kick Start – Mermaid Sunning

August 15, 2018

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

Rare mermaid sighting!

Who are these mermaids? Are they waving goodbye to their pirate lovers? Beckoning ships closer so that they wreck upon the rocks and then steal the hapless sailors’ souls? Has Poseidon set a dangerous challenge for suitors who want to win the hand of one of his daughters? Is this a cut scene from the Little Mermaid?

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

August 8, 2018

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

 

I dunno. That might not be so bad.

Who is today’s prompt? Why is he lost? Does he have amnesia? Made terrible decisions throughout his life? Took a wrong turn in a strange new town? Had the woman he deeply loved left him in some heart-rending way?  What does he find on the island? A sobering experience which will help him find his way back home? The girl he once had a crush on? Every unmatched pair of socks? Gilligan?

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 – Waterside Edition

August 1, 2018

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

 

Today’s prompt is a little soggy. Who is she and is she on the banks of a lake or the sea? I’d like to think she sitting in a coastal tidal pool. Is she lamenting because someone stole her voice? Or waiting for her pirate lover to return? Could she be a siren debating on whether she should stay on land with the man she loves or return to her home beneath the surface? What if she’s plotting to drag someone into the depths out of revenge? Perhaps she already has is regretting what she’s done and is grieving him. Or maybe she’s just bummed that Shark Week is over.

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

*boom* I give you today’s prompt.

Who is our guy? Bomb squad? Mercenary? Super Villan? Warrior? Was the loss of all those lives for the better good? Or will his deadly mistake haunt him for the rest of his life? What did he have in his hands? An ancient relic? A government document? A computer code that will save or destroy the future? A kitten?

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

This pic is an accurate representation of how my summer has been. So what’s going on here? Is this a new meaning to hitting the glass ceiling?  Is she trying to escape a fashion nightmare? Was she dancing to her favorite Cindi Lauper song when she fell through?

June 27, 2018

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

 

Who could she be? Why did the masses shout her name? Why whisper it? Was she a favored warrior princess who delivered her people from evil but then turned into the very thing she destroyed? Is she a hunter leading a purge on the people? Was she a bombshell actress who met a mysterious death and has become a part of an urban legend—only the bravest of kids repeat her name three times in a mirror and hoping she doesn’t appear.

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