Tune-In Tuesday

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBmIptM7JvA   I know its been awhile since I've posted at all let alone one of my prompts, but I've been in another of my occasional funks. It seems that the second everything evens out in my life, something happens to send me spiraling right back down again. This song is very fitting for my … Continue reading Tune-In Tuesday

Your character wakes up and doesn't know where they are or how they got there. I chose this scenario because there are so many directions you could go with it. I wanted to see how many versions the same situation could bring about. I say it all the time, but its amazing how different each … Continue reading Saturday’s Daily

This week I'm going to ask for something specific. I want 1,000 words by next Friday based on this image. I came across it last week and something about it inspired me, I'm hoping it will do the same to your creative sense. See ya when you pingback. 🙂

I finished "The Fall" last night. If you've seen it, you will understand where both the Truth and the Dare stem from this week. I won't spoil anything for those of you who may watch it, but I will say that I was baffled at the end of the series. Watching it really made me … Continue reading Thursday’s Daily

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hcj9fyx6DXI  A sign of a great trailer is when it makes you fall in love with the movie before you ever even see it. That's what happened to me back in 1998 when I saw the trailer to Ever After for the first time. I remember hearing the music and thinking, I have GOT to … Continue reading Tuesday’s Daily

I watched the Legend of Hercules last night which led me to the decision of going Greek this week. I love me some Greek mythology, its the only time I ever paid attention in Humanities.  Although, with so many offspring, family trees get confusing.... I'll start this week out with a simple legend. Ever heard … Continue reading Monday’s Daily

An accident shatters the protagonists life but at the same time brings a new friend/love (nurse, doctor, witness, counselor, lawyer, etc.) into it. Sometimes, the worst thing that can happen to you is the best thing that can happen for you. For every door that closes, another one opens. This week I want to know … Continue reading Saturday’s Daily

I've been plotting a story that involves many supernatural elements, including werewolves. Naturally that's what comes to mind when I see this picture. However, that's the beauty of imagination. Not everyone sees the same thing. Either way, I though this was a beautiful picture. The stark contrast of black and white, good and evil in … Continue reading Friday’s Daily

I know my prompts are not always easy. They are not defined by rules or narrowed down to a single situation. Sometimes, having so many options makes it that much more difficult to start. So I'll make it a bit simpler with this post. This week, I will focus on a truth of sorts. Who … Continue reading Thursday’s Daily

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weWtRqoSUOI If anyone were to ask me who my favorite artist was, without a doubt my first response would be Tori Amos. She is the epitome of what a true artist is. Not only does she write her own lyrics, play her own instruments and sing her own songs, everything about her music is unique. … Continue reading Tune-In Tuesday

So, I was watching Pompeii last night and it gave me the idea for today's prompt. Not to mention added to my already growing obsession with Kit Harington (better known as Jon Snow from Game of Thrones). We all know the myth of Atlantis: a utopian city wiped out in a single night thanks to … Continue reading Monday’s Daily

Is it Saturday already? ... my, how time flies. I've been watching Helix on Netflix. Funny how I never gave it a chance before seeing as it's right up my alley as far as genre goes. Viruses, immortality, end of the world shit.... Yep, all the good stuff. Which brings me to this weeks scenario. … Continue reading Saturday’s Daily

I don't know about you, but I love big city night life. I always thought that if I hadn't had kids at such a young age, I would have moved to New York and been part of the sleep all day, up all night atmosphere of the "new adult" experience. Now I'm 34 and there's … Continue reading Friday’s Daily

Dead or Alive

Out in the real world, they were convicted criminals. Killers, rapists, monsters; all the things that go bump in the night. But inside these walls they were victims. And I was the only voice they had left. Most people would say that they’re getting what they deserve. Because all those people see is the horrific … Continue reading Dead or Alive

Love Me Tender

The keys jingled in the front lock. Once, twice, three times before they hit their mark and the door unlocked. John was home. He walked down the hall, each step getting louder as he headed in her direction. She took a deep breath. Plastered a smile on her face and turned to greet him, a … Continue reading Love Me Tender

Out of the Ashes

It was morning. The suns first rays peeked through the bedroom window, tinting the walls a pinkish orange. Her heart skipped a beat as she rolled over and saw him laying there. This was her favorite part of the day. That first fifteen minutes where everything was fresh and new and perfect.  She turned on her side and wrapped her arms … Continue reading Out of the Ashes

House of Magic

The tiny shop caught Mira's eye as she walked down 5th and Main. It was small. Old. Sandwiched between a bakery and a book store, it was almost unnoticeable. House of Magic, the etched wooden sign read. A quick glance at her watch told her she still had 20 minutes to kill before her dime ran … Continue reading House of Magic

Short Story Prompt

Your character is pregnant and in her last trimester. A storm is brewing and she breaks down in front of an old creepy motel. She was on her way out of town for [insert reason here], driving instead of flying because of how late in the pregnancy she is. Tell me her story. Any genre. 

Heads or Tails

"Heads we get married, tails we break up," he toyed with the coin in his hand. I almost choked on my soda and had to drag in a breath of air before responding to that doozy of a statement. I received a couple of glances in the process as if the tiny break in silence … Continue reading Heads or Tails
