Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #15

August 16, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

Huh… Wonder why? Is the prison based on an island with man-eating giant gorillas or surrounded by mutant sharks? On another planet with vengeful alien beasts? Could the prison be run by a beautiful, deadly demon who takes horrifying pleasure in torturing her escapees? Maybe the prison is filled with detainees who have not yet been infected by the zombies roaming around on the outside.

Share your ideas and/or post your creations, even if it’s just a line or two. I’d love to hear them.


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.

So this begs the question, what flavor ice cream? Oh okay, I suppose we’d like to know what the crime is and what prompted her to want to commit such a deed? Is she desperate? What has made her that way? Money? Love? Betrayal? Revenge? Pregnancy? Good grief, wild hormones can make a woman do crazy things. Just sayin’.

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.

Ouch.

Who are our players in today’s prompt? What happened? Was it an honest mishap? Intentional betrayal? Did the result end in something detrimental? Upset the delicate balance of humankind? Are these her final thoughts as he hovers over her with a grim smile? Or is it something worse, like he forgot to bring home ice cream?

If that isn’t a story, I don’t know what is. Who is the customer? What does the artist think of him? Is he friendly? Quiet? What does he look like? Burly and threatening? Wiry and creepy? Super cute and wearing a biker jacket/football jersey/tailored suit? Is she curious? Maybe scared? And just what do the tally marks represent?
