It is sunny and hot here in Portland, hot like in the nineties. Not my favorite. My office is upstairs for the time being (I'm working on moving it downstairs) and it gets hot up here so I'll be driven away from the computer soon enough. (I'm pretty sure we're going to see the movie Mad Max this afternoon–I've been a movie going fool lately, and besides, the theater will be air conditioned!) But before I go, just because I love you so much and want to make sure you write tons this week, I compiled the latest collection of prompts from my Tumblr blog for you. Hope it is lovely where you are and that you're having a great weekend.
#309 Viva la revolution! What does your main character feel strongly enough about to agitate for? To take to the streets in rebellion? To protest if it were taken away from him?
#310 She worked furtively on the project for months, hiding the papers she took notes on or the computer screen when anybody walked by. In the end, when she finally revealed the project, it was for __________________.
Either her project works amazingly well, or its a huge fiasco. Write about her project and its results.
#311 Main character (or you): primly tidy or near-hoarder? How does this make him or her feel?
#312 Ever patiently, he sharpened the knife.
#313 “Why do people act like that?” she asked, watching as a group down the hill started to __________________.
#314 Although there was nothing wrong with his leg, he always walked with a cane.
#315 She poured cream into her coffee and gazed into the cup, hoping it would tell her a secret.
By the way, those last few prompts are from something I found when sorting through crap stuff in my office. More on that soon. In the meantime, how's your writing going?
