Each week, some of us trade prompts, and some of us grab spares, or submit them with the hopes of seeing what comes from a glimmer of an idea. What say we shake things up a bit? A new perspective doesn’t have to be drastic, but as simple as the combination of unusual things.
So this week, the spares prompts go first – extra seasoning! Chefs say salt makes things taste more like themselves – perhaps spare prompts will enhance the ideas as well.
With no further ado, here are your spares:
|Spare||The wallet lay under a bush|
|Spare||It was a deliberate act of overt humility.|
|Spare||Don’t forget to feed the basilisk!|
|Spare||The glare was more than she could bear.|
|Spare||Everyone thought the Easter Bunny was so innocent…|
And here are your usual traded prompts, one for one.

|AC Young||Do Not Open. Inside is the curse of never-ending life (unless slain by another).||nother Mike|
|Fiona Grey||The salt and pepper trees were the best discovery of the island.||Leigh Kimmel|
|Leigh Kimmel||The coffee table book is open to the scene of….||Fiona Grey|
|nother Mike||Grinding the spice of life fine left a residue of DNA…||Cedar Sanderson|
Will it be the depth of goulash, simmered into a cohesive whole? The unexpected combinations of stone soup? The layers of crispness found within a perfect croissant? The tang of lemon curd, bright and surprising? Whatever masterpieces emerge, it’s sure to be
delicious a delightful read.
