Hump Day Kick Start – Mermaid Sunning

August 15, 2018

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

Rare mermaid sighting!

Who are these mermaids? Are they waving goodbye to their pirate lovers? Beckoning ships closer so that they wreck upon the rocks and then steal the hapless sailors’ souls? Has Poseidon set a dangerous challenge for suitors who want to win the hand of one of his daughters? Is this a cut scene from the Little Mermaid?

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Waterside Edition

August 1, 2018

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

 

Today’s prompt is a little soggy. Who is she and is she on the banks of a lake or the sea? I’d like to think she sitting in a coastal tidal pool. Is she lamenting because someone stole her voice? Or waiting for her pirate lover to return? Could she be a siren debating on whether she should stay on land with the man she loves or return to her home beneath the surface? What if she’s plotting to drag someone into the depths out of revenge? Perhaps she already has is regretting what she’s done and is grieving him. Or maybe she’s just bummed that Shark Week is over.

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

I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date! I give you today’s Hump Day Kick Start.

This pic is an accurate representation of how my summer has been. So what’s going on here? Is this a new meaning to hitting the glass ceiling?  Is she trying to escape a fashion nightmare? Was she dancing to her favorite Cindi Lauper song when she fell through?

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

Intrigue. Suspense. Danger.

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who is she and why is she a target? International spy with secrets that cannot be revealed? Government assassin who is too dangerous even for her own employers? Time jumper who has to be stopped from changing the future? Leader of an elite coven/cult/Lycan army/fashion designer club with a price on her head from rivals? Office intern who got a coffee order wrong?

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

Happy summer, y’all.

Who’s hitting the beach? You know this salty wench will be. Anyone hoping to see a pirate or a mermaid? Find buried treasure? Catch a killer wave or a crispy burn?

Tell me about today’s prompt. Sure, she could be a siren about to kiss the life from a hapless sailor, dragging him to the bottom. Or maybe she is a selkie saying a sad goodbye to her Scotsman. Could they be young lovers frolicking in the calm surf? Does danger lurk beneath the surface? A large shark, perhaps? *shutters as the tell-tale music to Jaws plays*

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Ledge Edition

May 23, 2018

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

It’s a long way down. What’s going on in today’s prompt? Who is our guy? Why is he on the ledge? Is it just an awesome view? Does he think he’s some kind of god and he’s watching all the insignificant people below as if they were ants? Had he just done something unredeemable that has him contemplating life? Is he playing a cat and mouse game with the law? Could he be a brooding superhero? Is Van Halen being a bad influence?

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

May 2, 2018

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

Caliente!

Tell me about today’s prompt. Who are they and what’s going on? Did they just meet and are in a whirlwind adventure/romance à la Romancing the Stone? Does one of them mean to do the other harm? Are they the Romeo and Juliet of a Mexican town, destined for a tragic ending? Could they be practicing for a spot on Dancing with the Mariachis?

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