Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #59

September 4, 2019

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

 

I’m suddenly a bit panicky. Too late for what? Has the person who wrote this done something drastic? Have they put a set of events into motion, events happening like the fall of dominos? Is the author leaving someone? Have murdered, embezzled, set a timer for global destruction, or already left for the grocery store?

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 – Unsaid Edition

August 28, 2019

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

This is gonna hurt. Someone, anyway. Who wrote in this journal? To whom was it written for? What exactly is inside? Could it be love notes written to a best friend? Or a book of confessions? If so, what kind of confessions? A true identity? Infidelity? Murder? Maybe the author suffers from demons they couldn’t share out loud.  Maybe those demons weren’t just inside their head but were people close to them. What if the journal contains poems of falling out of love? Or maybe this is a list of all the girlfriend or wife’s preferred places to eat.

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 #58

August 21, 2019

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

Ooh, fun! It could be anything! What have they found and what could be the implications? Letters to loved ones detailing the reason for the suicide pact? Mummified pet dinosaurs? The Ark of the Covenant? Blackbeard’s treasure? Hundreds of unmatching socks? Could this be the burial site of the lost Roanoke colony and every indication suggest they were murdered? Are the bodies ancient but the devices or weapons with them are more scientifically advanced that what we have today?

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 – Bar Glasses

August 14, 2019

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

One of my favs…

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who is he? Why the face? Is he a down-on-his-luck detective just wanting to lose himself in alcohol but had just been offered a ridiculous yet deadly opportunity that could resurrect his career? Is he a bartender who is stunned and equally impressed with his new beautiful colleague who can out-do him on serving tricks? Amid a damn fine time vacationing at a tropical resort had the sexy girl he met hours before just fleece him? Was he just told the dumbest joke ever?

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 #57

August 7, 2019

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

Just three more days. Three more days until what? Who is he? What happens after three days? Will his divorce be final? Or could he be retiring from the job he has held his entire adult life? Maybe his combat tour ends. Does his diabolical plan come to fruition? When his contract with the beautiful but deadly goddess ends? What if in three days he knows his assassins will succeed?

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 – Shark!

July 31, 2019

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

Most likely photoshopped (let’s hope), but what an interesting prompt.

Is someone stranded in a crumbling, sinking city surrounded by hungry sharks? Has there been a natural disaster or global flooding and sharks have become displaced and looking for food? Could this be the release of genetically modified apex predators as a weapon against mankind by an evil enemy?

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 #56

July 24, 2019

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

So many possibilities. What was the tape? A transmission from another galaxy? Confession of a murderous scheme? Incomplete instructions on how to defuse a bomb? Orders from a mob boss or clandestine government agency? Video evidence of how the world ended? A replay of a terrible call by the baseball umpire that cost the game?

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 – Rocketeer Edition

July 17, 2019

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

Honoring the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing with a silly prompt.

Tell me what’s going on. The astronaut looks a little sad. Did he not win the costume contest? Is this in the future after we colonized another planet—one where cats clearly have evolved to not need oxygen? Could the astronaut actually be sitting on a moon rock hallucinating that he is back home? Maybe the astronaut is bummed because he missed his ride and will have to wait for the next lunar launch. Or that this what not what his friends meant about appropriate dress for storming Area 51?

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 #55

July 10, 2019

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

Ooh…what HAD she expected?

What had she wished for? A handsome, rich, affectionate, loyal boyfriend? A bag of money? To be rid of someone specific? The answer to a problem? That promotion? For someone to heal? What did she receive instead? The possibilities are endles!

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 – Forest Floor Edition

July 3, 2019

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

Can’t you just smell the wet earth of today’s prompt? Tell me who this is and what’s going on. Is this someone escaping capture from a kidnapper/posse/banjo-playing hillbilly? Are they a tracker hot on the trail of their bounty? Have they been lost in the woods and finally found water? Or are they looking for something—Bigfoot, a mischievous sprite, Aztecan gold, a portal back to their own time?

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