We are coming down to the wire with 2020. Let’s finish strong! There’s nothing magical about the end of a year… or is there? It’s a time to reflect, to look back at what we’ve accomplished. In an extraordinary year, I suspect we’ve done some extraordinary things.
Here’s the prompts for this week, and I’m looking forward to what everyone comes up with!
|Becky Jones||Walking through the Christmas section of the local hardware store, you notice that the cute elf figurine sleeping in the wreath is breathing.||nother Mike|
|Leigh Kimmel||It was supposed to be an ordinary delivery job — until you got an address that was nowhere in this world.||Cedar Sanderson|
|nother Mike||It was always a proud day when another young dragon first blew flame across the room, but it did make teaching elementary school classes for young dragons hard on teachers.||Fiona Grey|
|Fiona Grey||“I got him!” She waved her prize in the air and wiggled her hips, grinning at her mentor. He gave her a wistful smile, wishing they were as safe as she clearly believed. “I’m afraid they hunt in packs.”||Becky Jones|
|Cedar Sanderson||What if, when you found that thing in the last place you looked, you didn’t stop looking? What would you find?||Leigh Kimmel|
And of course, the spares. Spare prompts are like that extra Christmas cookie. Take one! Decorate it, show it off, and gobble it up.
|Spare||As they turned the corner, a large purple alligator, standing on its hind feet on the sidewalk, waved one paw at them and opened its gaping jaws…|
|Spare||When you walked into the restroom in the restaurant, there was a child standing at the sink. When it turned to look at you, you realized it had green, scaly skin, odd black eyes, and a mouth that seemed to reach back almost to its ears… which wiggled as you watched. It reached toward you…|
|Spare||The field had a large sign, saying “Watch out for Free Roaming Imaginations”|
|Spare||A hiccup and a hippo|
|Spare||Brain sparks and human neurocircuits|
Don’t forget to check the comments for responses. There is some good reading to be had, and it’s always fun to see where people went with a prompt. Usually, it’s someplace you weren’t expecting it to go. Which is, if I think about it, a lot like this year.
