Hump Day Kick Start – The Note Edition

June 21, 2017

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

Now here’s a story.

For today’s prompt, who is the author of this note? Who is the note about? Could this be between jilted young lovers? Wayward hellion son angry with his demonic mother from the netherworld? Twin sisters in constant competition with each other? Why had the note been written? Was one denied love? Maybe committed a crime or unthinkable betrayal? Left someone behind without remorse? Didn’t share their chocolate bar?

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

Hump Day Kick Start – No, We Are Not Lost Edition

April 1, 2015

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



I regret to inform you this will be the last installment of Hump Day Kick Start. I know, I know…it’s saddens me, too. But my super secret stash of awesome photo prompts has been depleted. The well has run dry. Pffth…like that would ever happen. Happy April Fool’s Day, yo!

Now back to your regularly scheduled Hump Day prompt.

Who is our couple? Siblings, and while Jeb is screwing around getting them lost, she’s wondering when her knight in shining armor would show up and sweep her away from their backwater town? Maybe these two were high school sweethearts and she’s decided their relationship has far run its course, like the beater he still drives. Are they lovers running from the law/her dad/a serial killer and they’ve pulled over to find the next town which to hide in? If so, why are they running? Did he run out of gas—again—and determining how far away they’d have to walk? I bet she’s cursing him for not installing that GPS she got him for his birthday.

Love to hear your take. Or simply “caption this” photo.

dont leave


If I had to title this prompt, it would be “Don’t Leave”. Just look at his expression.

Tell me about this couple. Who are they and what’s going on? Did he just get her back? If so, from where or who? The brink of death? His enemy? Is he losing her? Was this his decision or hers? And why? Does he have a dark secret he is about to tell? Maybe they are in a hopeless, tragic love where they each belong to another, with no hope of being together again.

You tell me. What’s your take? I’d love to hear it.

of the night - RF

I will be in New Orleans this weekend attending the Undead Con and the 25th Annual Vampire Lestat Reunion Ball. What better way to celebrate than by kicking it off with a vampire inspired Hump Day Kick Start.

Who are our duo? Is he a centuries old tortured soul about to regrettably dine on his lovely victim? Perhaps he’s tired of  his macabre way of life and cursing himself and his thirst. Has he fallen for her, warring with himself as to making her his mate for all of eternity, or to not bring her into his world of suffering? What if he’s just in costume and she’s the real vampire. Maybe they are both vampires from battling territories intertwined in a deadly game, trying to seduce one another before going in for the kill. Conversely, maybe they are lovers, meeting in clandestine against their leaders commands. Getting caught is punishable by death.

*sniff, sniff* Is that garlic on your breath, my dear?

What’s your tale? Let me hear from you.

Hump Day Kick Start – Power Saw Edition

June 26, 2013

Song of the Day: Touch Too Much by AC/DC (Just because I heard the song yesterday and remembered how much I liked it.)

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


A half-naked man. A big-ass power saw. What more from a picture prompt could you ask for? That was a rhetorical question for the ladies, of course.

What’s his story? Who is our fireman? Is he new to the job? A seasoned firefighter? Is he practicing in a mock set up to enter a burning building?  Maybe he is about to open the door to something more sinister. What could be on the other side? What’s with the sullen look? Is he thinking about  the sexy pump operator that he can’t seem to drum up the nerve to ask out? Or did he lock himself out of his apartment…again?

Just look at they way he is holding his, er, tool. Just wait until he starts the thing. Sparks will surely fly.

What’s your take? Come one, be creative! Let me hear from you.

Hump Day Kick Start – Slither Edition

May 29, 2013

Song of the Day: Slither by Velvet Revolver

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


It’s that time again. Time for man and beast.

Who is our lean, fit subject today? Snake charmer? Wildlife wrangler? Herpetologist? What happened to his shirt? (Not that I’m complaining.) Is he stranded in the jungle? How did he get there? ? Is he an actor on the set of the next Tarzan movie? Is he a modern day Adam? If so, where is Eve?

Don’t let the size of his snake scare you. Let’s hear your take.

Hump Day Kick Start – Limber Edition

May 15, 2013

Song of the Day: Coming Undone by Korn

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


I’ve been put to the task to offer a picture prompt featuring a white-hot woman. And though we cannot see this contortionist’s face, I hoping I do not disappoint with my selection (and I had many to choose from).

And so…

Who is our lithe lady? Showgirl? Circus performer? Pole dancer? Hmm…are those even different occupations?

Why is she performing this, shall we say, trick? Is she trying to make a few extra bucks to pay for her tuition bills or her niece’s operation? Is she an award winning gymnast who is underhandedly trying to best her competition by doing a few extra ‘moves’ for the judging panel in an upcoming career making/breaking contest? Is she dodging bullets a la Matrix-style, and, hey, why not show a little leg?  Was she just thirsty?

What’s with the disapproving frown on her audience – the audience we can see, that is.

It’s wide open. Let’s here your take.
