Prompt Me, Please!

Smythe. Jacques Smythe. I have the teensiest smidge of wiggle room in my current writing schedule, so I’m going to be adding a 100-word slot to my day. My goal is to have new chapters ready for you in September. (No promises, but that’s the plan.) With that in mind, I’ve been scanning my current list of prompts. And I’d like MOAR. And I’m especially looking for short phrases. Drop a few onto the prompt post, please?

More to Come. The first thirty-one chapters of Lord Mettlebright’s Man came courtesy #Inktober. I posted chapters based on the official prompt list for 2018.

Here’s my challenge. Suggest a prompt—either a word or a phrase. I’ll choose my favorites and post the resulting list in advance, in case you’d like to drabble (or drawble) along next time I do a round. Continue reading
