Inventive Writing Prompt Round-Up #15

The weekly collection of prompts from my Tumblr blog (and don't forget, there are tons more here.)

#103 Write about how your main character exercises.  Does she go to the gym? Is he a runner training for the marathon?  Does she talk about starting an exercise program but never quite get to it?

#104 "If I were queen of the world, I would decree that Mondays did not exist," she said.

"But then Tuesdays would become Mondays," he said.

She shook her head.  ”I don’t care.  It just wouldn’t be the same.”

What one thing would you change if you ruled the world?

#105 What magazines do you, or your main character, read regularly? Make a list.  Write what this list says about you.  If you don’t read magazines, write about that.

#106 What is your favorite thing about airplane travel?  Your least favorite?

#107 Write about light, or the lack of it.  Every setting has a particular kind of light—bright and sunny, soft and glowy, dark and gray.  We writers look at all aspects of setting, but often forget to notice one of the most basic—light.  

#108  When it was finally over, they….

#109  Write about a time when your body hurt.  What from?  Why?  How long did it last?

Now go forth and write! But first leave a comment–what's your most helpful writing tip?
