Hump Day Kick Start – Cocktail Edition

December 4, 2019

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

‘Tis the season for cocktails. Or maybe contemplation. What do you suppose she might be contemplating? How to spend the rest of his money? How to make it through the holidays without committing murder? Could she be celebrating the closure of a lucrative business transaction? Or the end of a relationship? Maybe she’s waiting for the arrival of a secret Santa.

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Chained Edition

November 13, 2019

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

Cha-cha-chaaaiiined…

Tell me about today’s prompt. What’s their story? Why are they chained? Is theirs an enemies to lovers story? Could this a shotgun wedding? A final wish granted before they are executed? A bet gone horribly wrong?

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

 


Hump Day Kick Start – Cemetery Fires

October 30, 2019

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

How about this one for a chilling prompt. Well, maybe not chilling…with fire, and all.

Is this an apocalypse and those bound by hell are rising? Are the townsfolk trying to destroy the cursed witches/vampires/zombies crawling their way to the surface? Is this the work of a pyrokinetic child? Or the Sanderson Sisters? Did Smokey the Bear finally snap?

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Baleful Bathtub Edition

October 2, 2019

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

It’s October! You know what that means. Scary writing prompts! And this one is a great one to start with.

Where is this and who wrote the message? Is this an abandoned house or aslyum swallowed up by nature and now a place where kids hang out and party? Is the message a prank? Or had a vicious murder actually happened here and the house could never be sold. Is the message a warning? Or is it a plea to discover the truth behind what really happened to a lost soul? Or a final note highlighting how those closest to them had failed them. Had the person died by suicide? Drowned? Butchered? Succumbed to the filth that even Mr. Clean couldn’t conquer?

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Look at Me Edition

September 18, 2019

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

It’s still summer, y’all. (So hush up about anything pumpkin spice.) And today’s prompt is hot!

Who are these two and what’s going on? Is she a con artist seducing from him international secrets? Or setting him up to take a fall where she gets the promotion/the plea deal/the family fortune? Could she be looking for any sign that he’s lying to her, that he is the one who can’t be trusted? Maybe she is hypnotizing him so he can sleep better at night.

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


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 – 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 – 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 – 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 – 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.
