Writing Prompt #124

The last handful of writing prompts I’ve shared I’ve wanted to write about but due to the move, and a number of other things, I couldn’t focus. Now that I have my writing mojo back (yay!), I’m compelled to spend a little time on some prompts and craft some new pieces.

Writing Prompt #123

I’m not sure why I’ve been drawn to darker images for prompts recently. I mean, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a menacing story lurking within it’s shadows, but…

I was drawn to the contrast in this image, although I have yet to decide what flash fiction is waiting to be told from it.

What do you see? Are you inspired?

Writing Prompt #122

This was another image that immediately struck me with an idea. It’s been happening often, and I have to wonder if my creativity has sat dormant too long and is now ready to be set free.

Even during yoga recently, I had an idea of something to incorporate into a script that I’ve struggled with…a lot. And it wasn’t just a whiff of an idea, it was an instigator for the 3rd Act.

If you’ve been struggling with your own writing, give the Writing Prompt Challenge a try and mix things up. Who knows, maybe you’ll find a bit of inspiration by giving your mind a distraction.

Feeling inspired?

Writing Prompt #121

Sort of interesting that the first prompt of 2021 ends in 21, right? Just me? Well, I have a thing for numbers…

I had an idea immediately upon reading this so it was easy to decide to share this for today’s writing prompt.

Writing Prompt Challenge Accepted #25

When I decided to write flash fictions as part of the challenges I wanted to be sure to just write, without too much forethought or editing, and keeping the text at around 300 words. Today I chose to let the imagination run free and these are the result.

"Belchite Night" Carlos Santero

Haven

After two weeks of intermittent rain and cold winds, the storms had passed and the night sky finally revealed itself in all its splendor. We had trudged through mud for days, our clothes hadn’t been fully dry in nearly a fortnight, and there was a chill that had lodged itself in our spines and had become a perpetual torment.

Finding the old temple ruin was a welcome sight. There was a mysterious aura that surrounded the area, as if perhaps we were treading upon sacred ground or nearing the gateway to another world. Although the ceiling had collapsed some time ago, the structure did still offer us some protection and a little space from one another after so long huddled together in small tents and around campfires.

We needed a respite from our travels, and so decided we would spend a couple of days recuperating in the majestic, towering relic. It was hard not to be in awe of the temple; the architecture, the grandeur, and the frescos that adorned the walls and what remained of the ceiling. It was breathtaking and a wonder as to what its true purpose once was. And so on that first eerily silent night, I lay awake, staring up to the twinkling sky, wishing upon a thousand stars that we have the Maker’s grace to succeed in our quest.

Rendezvous

To the casual observer they appeared as long separated lovers finally reunited. There was an intensity about their demeanor, a longing contained for propriety’s sake that hinted at a level of intimacy that made those a witness to it blush. To set the scene of romanticism and to add another layer of mystery, a fog rolled in as if on cue. They stayed like that for some time, swaying towards one another but not moving even a breath closer.

They waited until the last traveler had exited the station before revealing the truth of their meeting. With a tilt of his hat almost in greeting, she dropped her fur cuff to reveal a wooden stake. He flashed a devestating smile, purposefully sliding his tongue against the point of his exposed fang while a low rumble of laughter echoed across the distance. While he made a spectacle of himself, she slid off her heeled shoes and tucked her skirt to allow her legs more freedom. She had been looking forward to this moment for some time and she was going to enjoy it.

If you’re ever inspired to join in the writing prompt challenge fun, please don’t forget to share!
