Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #19

October 18, 2017

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

This brings back memories of a movie which causes me an irrational fear of corn fields and red-headed teenage boys named Malachai. *shivers*

As we march into mid-October, here is your 3rd creepy prompt of the month. What is the warning? Are the kids armed and dangerous with sickles, butcher knives, dead cats, or the ability to catch you on fire? Psychotic flesh eaters who like games of hide and seek? Are they white-haired, murderous psychics? Devil children who crab-walk or are watched over by rottweiler dogs? Do they play with possessed, blood-lusting toys? Is it prom night? Do they want you to sit through episodes of Dora, Elmo, or Barney?

I’m creeping myself out! 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 – The Path Edition

October 11, 2017

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

Continuing on the Halloween theme, here is the second creepy prompt for the month.

Would you walk down this path? What’s going on here? What’s at the end of the trail? Is it worth getting to the other side? Is someone lost, trying to get back to a road and civilization? Are these hungry zombies? Restless, murderous demonic creatures from the past? Children of the corn all grown up? *shivers* Has someone neglected to mow their yard, trapping wayward delivery drivers and solicitors?

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #18

October 4, 2017

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

 

I love October. It’s that spooky time of year to get our freak on decorating with pumpkins, witches, cats, and skeletons. We parade around in our devil horns demanding pumpkin spice lattes like zombies. *shivers* We watch horror movies and Halloween flicks. We revel in the unexplained, the mysterious, the downright scary. We celebrate death with whimsical costumes and candy. Dude…we’re kinda morbid.

So to capitalize on the fun, I give you the first of creepy prompts. Who is she and who is she running from? The typical sorority girl and serial killer? Unarmed sheriff and the convict she recently put away? Weary traveler and deranged child with red hair and farmer coveralls? Does she attract unsavory spirits? What happens if she does? Do they terrorize her or protect her? Does she even get away with her life?

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 – Smoking Gun Edition

September 27, 2017

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

This looks…final. Tell me about today’s prompt. Clearly the gun has just been discharged. Who or what did he shoot? His partner who betrayed him? A lover who turned out to be a traitor? A young hit that had to be eliminated to save the future world? Someone he loved who had been infected by a zombie? Is he remorseful? Just tired? Angry and bitter that he had to be the one to pull the trigger? Maybe he would have had it no other way.

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


Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #17

September 20, 2017

Writing prompts to kick-start your muse.

 

Ooh…this could be romantic or ominous. The question is why has he been waiting for her? Has he been waiting for her reincarnation, the person, body and soul, that he couldn’t save long ago in hopes to hold her in his arms once again? Perhaps he has been waiting for her return so that he could finally destroy the woman who had killed his lover/wife/family once and for all. Could he be tasked with eliminating a bloodline? Protecting one? Maybe he was just waiting for her to finish getting ready so they could go to dinner.

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 – The Ring Edition

September 13, 2017

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

Got the wheels going on this one. Tell me about today’s prompt. Is that his ring on the necklace? Is he making a promise, giving it to someone special? If so why and what is the promise? Is he going somewhere, likely never to return, on a mission to space or a suicidal assignment meant to save the country/world and is leaving a piece of him behind? Maybe the ring belongs to his deceased wife and he hasn’t moved on. Or does the ring cause him to struggle with corruption and he has vowed to destroy it in the fires of Mount Doom?

Whats your take or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.


Hump Day Kick Start – Writing Prompt #16

September 6, 2017

Writing prompts to kick start your muse.

Spooky! When he found the note, was he alive or, ya know, not? Had someone set him up? Did he follow through and now wonder why he was still here? Wonder what unfinished business he had that kept him anchored? Was he murdered and vows to solve the mystery as to who, what, when, and why? Maybe he knows who did it and will take his revenge. Uh-oh.

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