Writing Prompt

I found this in my prompt folder and couldn’t believe I’d never posted it.

I didn’t know you could love and hate someone equally until I was introduced to Joss Whedon’s storytelling. He’s both a genius and a monster. He’s evil, but in a good way.

Writing Prompt #2

Writing Pompt #1

Use this piece of dialogue in a story.

Prompt: "What I lack in common sense, I make up for in sarcasm."

Based on something my twelve-year-old daughter said to me today.

The Amazing Story Generator (week 6)

Last one for awhile. I’m having fun with these, and getting some really crazy combos.

With only a week to live, a computer hacker has a showdown with a sheriff.

With only a week to live, a computer hacker has a showdown with a sheriff.

 

Another really odd prompt. I keep thinking of Eureka fanfic. So how come the hacker only has a week to live? Is it natural causes or did he mess with the wrong people? Why in the world is he trying to take down the sheriff if he’s about to die? Lots of different ways this one could go.

So tell me how you think it all fits together, or write a short story based on the prompt.

The Amazing Story Generator (week 5)

Another Monday, another prompt. Don’t forget you don’t have to write an actual story. Just tell us about what you think is happening (and voila! that’s how a story starts).

Following a disastrous job interview, a North Korean scientist inadvertently starts World War III.

I swear to god this came up randomly and I couldn’t stop laughing. This is where fiction hits a little too close to reality. Would make a great comedy of errors. Or a really depressing post-apocalypse story.

The Amazing Story Generator (week 4)

So, I’m having way too much fun with this book. So many interesting combinations of ideas.

On vacation for the first time in years, a world weary intelligence agent creates a family of robots.

On vacation for the first time in years, a world weary intelligence agent creates a family of robots.

So what’s the story behind this one? Why does the guy create a family of robots? Is he lonely? Did his family die or leave him while he was off on a mission? Maybe the family of robots are a bunch of clones meant to make his life easier? What did he do as a CIA agent (or pick your choice of intelligence agency here)? This could be made into something serious and deep or something completely silly.
