I don’t usually do “themed” posts. With the exception of RoW80 check-ins, I usually just write all willy-nilly about whatever may come to my mind and present itself more freely. This morning, though, after a long and crazy (in a good way!) week, I’m feeling at a loss for what to write about. Call it the shock over looking over the wreckage that NaNoWriMo has wrought. I’m on the cusp of finishing a book, so I could hold out until it’s done and put up its review, but I don’t think I’m as close to finishing as I am (you’re never as close to finishing as you think you are). I could go patrolling for Author Quotes and find one that manages to penetrate through the dull mist of my mind, but that requires a bit too much energy for a girl trying to write a blog pre-coffee and pre-shower (which is a silly idea to begin with).
So I thought to myself: L.S., you should do a writing prompt! A writing prompt? I say. A writing prompt, my brain confirms. I’ve done such before to minimal results (HI D.J.!), but it could be fun! I don’t have anything to offer you but bragging rights, but maybe we could all use a little inspiration in that strange lull after something as intensive as NaNoWriMo.
So, below, you will find a picture and a phrase by which to start your fiction. Be it as long or short as you deem necessary, as long as it incorporates the picture and the line as the start of your story. I might even whip one up myself. Here we go. Ready? Ready!
