January 2020 – Week 1 Writing Prompts
Inspiration Call: Word Prompt Wednesday: Panic
Use the word of the day in poetic or short story form.
Inspiration Call: Symbolic Animal Thursday
Write a story or a scene involving an animal that symbolizes something else. It can represent a concept, an experience, an emotion, a historical moment, or anything else you can think of.
Inspiration Call: Flash Fiction Friday
Write a flash fiction piece (short story, prose, poetry up to 1000 words)
Inspiration Call: 6 Word Story
Tell the story behind this picture in just 6 words. A Six Word story is a challenge for each writer to come up with a short story within six words.
Inspiration Call: * Timed Writing *
Choose a set time to write, 5 −7 minutes serves well. Set a timer, watch the clock. Stop writing when the time is up, even in the middle of a sentence. In timed writing, you write for a short, prescribed period of time. The purpose of timed writing is to prime the creative pump: shortening writing time makes sure you have more to say than time to say it. The frustration of stopping creates the impetus to write more. You become more interested in the ideas and thoughts you want to put down and less self-conscious about the times it’s taking to write. This exercise also helps develop confidence and establishes creative tension.

Imagination is such a playful partner. Can you for a moment conjure such a sight where a little man with a funny hat sits so mysteriously upon his pachyderm? What could he, indeed, be thinking and what sort of adventures have they led?
What a ponderous plight
perched upon a pachyderm
are you perhaps
patrolling for purple parrots?
but they are a persnickerous pack
as they lack any sort of polite
parading past your pachyderm
clearly lacking permission or tact.

Panic attacks over come me
always happen when I turn on the news
in case I hear our dear leader
constant chaos around us
Tiger burning bright
tiger running from the flames
running for his life
chased by the chaos
unleashed by the humans
who continue to destroy
the entire world
for the profits of the rich
the tiger runs away
deeper into the wilderness
trying to avoid
the reach of humanity
but to no avail
as the world burns
tiger burning bright
Cthullu angels of love
angels of love
dispatched to earth
by the secret god
that controls the world
the hidden god
the ancient god Cthulhu
who was here
and the other ancient gods
searching for true love
a gift from humanity
from the much feared
Cthulhu, the evil God
of the ancient world
Trump’s fence is being build along the border
Responding to the national emergency
Undocumented evil alien hordes
millions of brown people marching across the desert wasteland
Preparing to rape, pillage, and kill decent Christians
Fences and walls have never worked
Even the Great Wall and Hadrian’s wall
Not enough to keep the barbarians at bay
Certainty a huge waste of money and resources
Enough though perhaps to satisfy his rabid white base
