Writing Prompt Wednesday: The Trump Prophecy

No new Writing Prompt Wednesday this week, but in light of recent events, I thought I’d link to a writing prompt I did a few months ago.

It was based on this prompt submitted by TinmanTomfoolery:

“You’ve spent all your life trying to prevent the prophecy from coming true. You’ve always know when you’d destroy Earth, but when the day finally came, you were glad to do it.”

You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: The Laziest Alien Invasion

To brush away the brain-cobwebs, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

Last week’s story was a Halloween-themed emotional rollercoaster that had both a happy and sad ending, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by visijared:

“A physically inferior alien race has been slowly injecting Earth with leisure-focused technology over centuries to soften up humans pre-invasion.”

Inspiration hit me pretty quickly with this one. I won’t spoil anything, but I will say it was very fun to write.

I’m really happy with how this one came out, but you can be the judge yourself! You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: Getting Candy and Revenge on Halloween

To keep the typing fingers in shape, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

Last week’s story was a fun inside-joke for Pokémon fans, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by Wolve909:

“A story with a vague ending that can be interpreted as a happy ending or a sad ending. Bonus: make it Halloween themed!”

I took this one on as a challenge. Most writing prompts are based on a plot suggestion, but this one was more of a structural one.

I’m really happy with how this one came out, but you can be the judge yourself! You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: That Motherf*cking Moon

To keep the frontal lobe functioning, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

Last week’s story ended up hellishy fun, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by CBLA1785:

“You are an engineer in the Ganymede Mining Corp drilling to the top surface of your ice shelf for the first time from the ocean below. What is found on the surface of your moon changes everything.”

I probably took this one in a bit of an… unexpected direction, but hey, it’s what my brain told me to do and I am a slave to the synapses.

It was a lot of fun to write and I like how it turned out but feel free to decide for yourself. You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: Hell is One Other Person

To dust off the ‘ol brain, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

Last week’s story ended up pretty funny, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by SkamGnal:

“You walk through the Gates of Hell, expecting an eternity of agony. Instead you look around and see only one other soul.”

I’m no stranger to writing stories about Hell, so I leaped at the opportunity to do this one and see where it went.

It was a lot of fun to write and I like how it turned out but feel free to decide for yourself. You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: Witches Be Bitches

To give my brain a good workout, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

Last week’s story ended up pretty funny, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by AlphaTitan8:

“As an immortal you have one rule, always stay unknown.”

Man, what’s with me picking all of these immortality prompts? I feel like my subconscious is trying to tell me something (seek the Sorcerer’s Stone….)

Anyway it was fun to write and I like how the story turned out but feel free to decide for yourself. You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: Late for Work on the End of the World

To increase the number of horrible stories in the world, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

Last week’s story was a fun twist on the prompt, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by SpandexTerry:

“You wake up at 10:15 AM. Already late for work you rush to get dressed. It’s then you notice that the Sun hasn’t risen.”

Usually I pick prompts based on how interesting they sound or if I’m hit with inspiration, but this one I purposefully chose because I had no idea what I was going to write.

It was a fun challenge, and I like how the story turned out much more humorous than I’d imagined, but feel free to decide for yourself. You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: Boys Drool, Immortality Rules

To keep my fingers in shape, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

Last week’s story was fun to write, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by PlasmaScythe:

“You pray to God, wishing that you will get a boyfriend/girlfriend before you die. He gives you immortality.”

I always enjoy taking a bit of a different route than the obvious one provided by the prompt. After a bit of thinking, inspiration hit, and I decided to see where it went.

I kind of like where it ended up, but feel free to decide for yourself. You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: The Value of Being Interrupted

To keep the brain flow going smoothly, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

Last week’s story ended up pretty funny, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by femto97:

“You are a stenographer (professional typist) hired by a wealthy but dysfunctional couple to type all the various arguments they have throughout the day.”

This story ended up as all-dialogue, which is always fun to write because it forces you to write each character to sound distinct from the others. Without names to distinguish them, you only have the sound of their voices.

I’m not sure if I fully succeeded in accomplishing that, but feel free to judge for yourself. You can read the story here.

Writing Prompt Wednesday: The Trump Prophecy

In order to keep the juices flowing and not get too narrowly focused on just the one creative writing project that I’m currently working on, I’ve decided that each week I’ll write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.

This week I chose this prompt submitted by TinmanTomfoolery:

“You’ve spent all your life trying to prevent the prophecy from coming true. You’ve always know when you’d destroy Earth, but when the day finally came, you were glad to do it.”

As soon as I read that, inspiration hit me like a blonde toupee. You can read the story here.
