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.


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.
