Ten Writing Prompts…“I’m telling you for the last time…”

word art ideas circular mind mapGreetings, readers and writers.

Just touching base on this blog with some writing prompts from my third book. I am also repeating the 31-day My 500 Words challenge. It was instrumental last January in my building a more consistent writing habit.

I’ve decided this year that I will direct my daily word count toward a single project I’m working on. Here was today’s post to the group. [Day 3 for me.]

610 words on my project of the month. I’m using the words to work through my process–steps I’m taking toward completion, including my responses to books and resources I’m using to help me. [i.e. Side Hustle by Chris Guillebeau]. Two things are ‘freeing’: 1. This 500-word challenge because Jeff Goins says, ‘Don’t edit!’. 2. The project itself because it is just an experiment anyway, without much skin in the game.

For me, merely completing the project will be the reward.

Here are the prompts:

  1. “Whoa! Hold on there. Don’t start throwing out terms like ‘nutritional’ and ‘organic’ around here!”
  2. “So, you have no alibi and you were the last person to see her alive and you don’t think you should be in this room?”
  3. We were going to let her sit and stew awhile before we delivered the news…
  4. “Please! Take the gun. Just put the accordion down!”
  5. All he ever talked about was food…
  6. We knew we had found his weak spot…
  7. Customers lining up around the corner. Angry customers…
  8. This was not the time to get sentimental…
  9. “You really have no idea where your money comes from, do you?”
  10. “I’m telling you for the last time…”

Note: Always feel free to request a PDF of one of my books of 1000 prompts.
