Pushing forward into the New Year with bright and eager eyes… I don’t know who is doing that. It’s not me. I need more coffee and about twenty hours of sleep. I want to write about living in interesting times, not actually experience them again for myself.
Well, can’t be helped. At least I can amuse and divert my mind with a prompt chew toy…
|AC Young||I’m going to need the spider.||Kat Ross|
|Fiona Grey||Broken yellow and black caution tape fluttered abandoned in the wind.||AC Young|
|nother Mike||When he walked into the kitchen, his wife and child were cooking dinner, wearing complete cosplay outfits… (Based on a scene in a commercial)||Becky Jones|
|Cedar Sanderson||“Not particularly evil, just… not quite right.”||Fiona Grey|
|Misha Burnett||Tomorrow’s headline reads “Alien Spaceship Lands In [Name Of Your Town]” but you don’t see any evidence of it and neither does anyone you talk to.||nother Mike|
|Kat Ross||“I feel like my brain has been scooped out with a melon baller, mashed up like baby food and then poured back in my skull.”||Cedar Sanderson|
|Becky Jones||The sleeping dragon filled the small back yard.||Misha Burnett|
If you didn’t get a prompt in this week, or you aren’t ready for that kind of commitment, we cast no stones around here. Instead, we have plenty of spare prompts for you! In fact, if you email us a prompt to oddprompts at gmail dot com, and you put spare in the subject line, this is where it will wind up. Who knows, someone might choose yours this next week! Wouldn’t that be fun?
|Spare||Working on the robo-cat test team was exciting, to say the least…|
|Spare||You’ve enjoyed growing up in the village, but now you want to see the world that you’ve read about and experienced in VR so many times. Unfortunately, when you try to leave, you find a solid shell surrounding the village and outlying fields…|
|Spare||Everything you can’t control|
|Spare||“Uh, is that a real skeleton?” “Yeah, but don’t worry. Fred’s great. He’ll wake up soon and you’ll meet him for yourself.”|
It’s like planting a row full of story seeds. You never know what kind of blooms you might get. Or what you might have to feed them…
