Hump Day Kick Start – The Path Edition

October 11, 2017

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

Continuing on the Halloween theme, here is the second creepy prompt for the month.

Would you walk down this path? What’s going on here? What’s at the end of the trail? Is it worth getting to the other side? Is someone lost, trying to get back to a road and civilization? Are these hungry zombies? Restless, murderous demonic creatures from the past? Children of the corn all grown up? *shivers* Has someone neglected to mow their yard, trapping wayward delivery drivers and solicitors?

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Smoking Gun Edition

September 27, 2017

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

This looks…final. Tell me about today’s prompt. Clearly the gun has just been discharged. Who or what did he shoot? His partner who betrayed him? A lover who turned out to be a traitor? A young hit that had to be eliminated to save the future world? Someone he loved who had been infected by a zombie? Is he remorseful? Just tired? Angry and bitter that he had to be the one to pull the trigger? Maybe he would have had it no other way.

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


Hump Day Kick Start – The Ring Edition

September 13, 2017

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

Got the wheels going on this one. Tell me about today’s prompt. Is that his ring on the necklace? Is he making a promise, giving it to someone special? If so why and what is the promise? Is he going somewhere, likely never to return, on a mission to space or a suicidal assignment meant to save the country/world and is leaving a piece of him behind? Maybe the ring belongs to his deceased wife and he hasn’t moved on. Or does the ring cause him to struggle with corruption and he has vowed to destroy it in the fires of Mount Doom?

Whats your take or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.


Hump Day Kick Start – Secret Key Edition

August 23, 2017

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

Love this prompt. It could go so many ways. Who is she and what does the key belong to? Is that the key to her heart…or chastity belt? Does the key belong to the door to hell—literally? Is she the gatekeeper? Maybe it belongs to salvation but she demands a high price, namely a soul. Could it belong to a safe deposit box stuffed with information that would destroy someone who is powerful? Or a chest filled with stolen jewels? What if the key is to the locked freezer containing creamy, delicious ice cream?

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Eat My Dust Edition

August 9, 2017

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

Today’s prompt is metal, leather, and dirt. Oh yeeaah…

So who is he and what’s going on? Is he a drifter in a post-apocalyptic world? A Lycan hunter with silver-tipped arrows? A time-jumping bounty hunter? Is he running from something? Searching for someone? Out for blood? Off to slay a beast terrorizing his town? Maybe he’s a road warrior going on a date with a sexy death dealer.

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

 


Hump Day Kick Start – Padlock Edition

July 19, 2017

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

Wouldn’t it be fun to visit this bridge and put your own love lock on it? For those of you unaware, a love lock “is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, monument or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Typically the sweethearts’ names or initials are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love.” (Wikipedia) The bridge in this picture is the Pont des Arts – a pedestrian bridge in Paris over the River Seine.

What a fun pic for a photo writing prompt. Who is the couple? Are they lovers as suspected? Did they just snap close their own lock? Did he propose? Could she have just announced she was pregnant? Or should we look closer? Are they parting ways forever due to circumstances beyond their control? Reuniting after believing they would never see each other again? Could one be a local and the other a tourist and they are having a whirlwind tryst? What if she were terminally ill or he was a serial killer or vice versa or both?

What does that kiss mean to you? Tell me your tale or caption the pic.


Hump Day Kick Start – Coating the Deck Edition

July 5, 2017

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

Sorry but not sorry. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a writing prompt like this.

So tell me, who is he? What is he doing? What or who is he looking at? What is he thinking? Is he just the local surfer boy who dreams of riding a beast of a wave? Maybe his opponent in an upcoming surfing contest has him distracted with her beauty and her competitive taunts. Could he be deep undercover, infiltrating a drug-smuggling ring? Or an instructor who takes tourists to the best spots? What if he is impersonating a guide and fleecing customers, or worse. On the flip side, he could be the tourist, a writer for a travel magazine, and his guide is a feisty local who tempts him to give up his wandering ways. Maybe he just ran out of sex wax, hoping the cute surfer girl nearby would share hers.

You know how this works. Tell me a tale or caption the pic.
