Monday Morning Inspiration: A Creative Writing Prompt

Alright everyone, let's try something not-so-new. Some time ago I did a writing prompt for my blog! It was a great way to be creative for the week and flex creative muscles even when I wasn't really feeling it. Then I decided to step away from it because I just wasn't feeling like blogging anymore at all. Now I'm back again and trying to get active into the blogging community as well as with my own writing. And this is an excellent way to start.

So, this is my weekly writing prompt. You'll get one photo and five words. The only rule is that you must use all five words in your prompt response and you can use the photo provided in any way you think it applies to your story, poem, etc.

Okay you guys, here is the photo (Creative Commons License)

And here's the five words to use (chosen at random thanks to this site)






I would love to see what you come up with if you decide to respond! I'll do what I did last time and give everyone a week. So by next Monday morning, everyone will get a new photo and new words. If you decide to respond to this prompt, come back here and post a link to your post in the comments or the link up widget (if it's showing). I'll come by and check it out! If you do, I'll share it on my newest writing prompt next Monday!

Happy writing!


  1. Great idea! I like a prompt challenge, but haven't done one for a while. Might be too busy this week but I'll be back. I tweeted it for you. Hope you get some suitably creepy stories out of this one!

    1. Oh thank you for sharing! I hope you respond! I'd love to see what you write!

  2. I think I'd have problems working together wolf and armchair!

  3. It can start with a flicker and a flash. A jolt. A surge. 30 seconds at 2000 volts. It does not discriminate whether truly innocent or guilty—a lamb or a wolf in sheep’s clothing—this tragic gateway to the other side. Belts strap your chest, groin, legs, and arms. Your head is moistened, electrodes attached. Blindfolded, you imagine sitting in your favorite armchair, beer in hand, watching the game, the fans in the stands—the sickly sweet smell of smoky meats on a grill. Acceptance washes over you.

    Flip the switch.

    1. Ooo I love it!!! What a transition into sensory details!! I don't think I'll be able to watch TV tonight without thinking of this!


I love comments! The good, the bad, and the ugly, so tell me what you have to say! And if you like what you read (or at least find yourself entertained), follow my blog to read more. Although I'm not always able to respond to comments immediately, I appreciate every one of them.
