Hump Day Kick Start – The Note Edition

June 21, 2017

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

Now here’s a story.

For today’s prompt, who is the author of this note? Who is the note about? Could this be between jilted young lovers? Wayward hellion son angry with his demonic mother from the netherworld? Twin sisters in constant competition with each other? Why had the note been written? Was one denied love? Maybe committed a crime or unthinkable betrayal? Left someone behind without remorse? Didn’t share their chocolate bar?

What’s your take? I’d love to hear it. Or just caption the pic.


Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #12

June 14, 2017

 

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

If that isn’t a story, I don’t know what is. Who is the customer? What does the artist think of him? Is he friendly? Quiet? What does he look like? Burly and threatening? Wiry and creepy? Super cute and wearing a biker jacket/football jersey/tailored suit? Is she curious? Maybe scared? And just what do the tally marks represent?

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 – Sketching Edition

June 7, 2017

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

Getting creative for today’s picture writing prompt. Yeah, bad pun, I know.

So what’s up with these two? Who are they and what’s going on? Is she a tourist in a foreign country and he the local virtuoso not letting the language barrier come between them?  Maybe she’s an art teacher and he is her pupil. What is that expression on her face? Could she be contemplating a mistake? Thinking of how he could be somebody and she’s holding him back? Deliberating letting him go? What if there was something darker at stake here. Are they criminals on their downtime? Perhaps they are involved in espionage and he’s sketching out an escape plan. Suppose she is a succubus and her unwitting lover who helps keep her immortal black soul youthful. Hey, it could happen…

Your turn. Tell me a tale or caption the pic.

 


Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #11

May 31, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

This can be scary or funny. What do you make of today’s prompt? Who is this? Who are they speaking to? Why are they wanted dead? Is this an evil demon/vampire/stepmother bent on destruction facing down an outmatched hero/heroine armed with a demon blaster/wooden stake/holy water? A spiteful ex-lover with nothing to lose? The soulless clerk that works at the DMV?

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 – Bat Girl Edition

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

bat

Something about this girl makes me want to take her seriously.

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who is she? Where is she? What is she doing? Is she on her way to the Comic-Con as a representation of Harley Quinn? Could she be the doppelganger of the supervillain, only more dangerous? What if she is a woman scorned and on her way to pay her ex-boyfriend a friendly visit. And why would anyone cross a girl with a noose tattooed on the back of her neck? Maybe she is delivering top secret information hidden in her backpack and the bat is her protection against the miscreants in her post-apocalyptic world.  Of course, she might be on her way to a roller derby game at the Thunderdome.

Your turn. Tell me a tale or caption the pic, yo.

 


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.

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.
