prompt-cd

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?

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 – 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.


Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #7

April 5, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

 

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?

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 – Billy and his Blade Edition

March 29, 2017

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

Since announcing the Romance on the High Seas box set of 7 swashbuckling tales yesterday, pirates are on my mind this week. Well…they’re always on my mind. So I give you this week’s prompt—Billy.

He doesn’t have to be a pirate. He could be a mercenary, a blacksmith, heck, even a taxidermist. Whoever he is to you, what’s his story? What is going through his mind? Is he angry, contemplative, remorseful, scared, or insane? Could he be plotting revenge? Spiraling into a dark place in his mind over the loss of someone he loved? About to deliver justice to a captive? Cleaning his nails?

Tell me a tale, mate, or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from ya!


Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #6

March 22, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

 

Now THIS…this could go in so many directions. What are the side effects? Are they mental, physical, or something entirely different? Small and unassuming or epic? Who are they affecting? Human or beast? Just one person, an entire population, or all civilization?

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 – The Catch Edition

March 15, 2017

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

In honor of this week’s St. Patrick’s Day, I give you one of my favorite Irishmen for today’s hump day.

What’s the story? Did he fish out a selkie from the sea? Is she alive? Why was she in the water? Had she fallen overboard? Was just out for a swim when she got caught in his net? Maybe she purposely swam into his net in an elaborate plot to destroy his reputation/go along with him on a treasure hunt/be on the next Deadliest Catch television show. Could she be his Moby Dick he’s finally caught?

Tell me a story or caption the pic. And Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
