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.

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 – One in the Skull Edition

May 10, 2017

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

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.

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 – 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 – 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 – 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.
