Inventive Writing Prompt Round-up #24

Welcome to another round of writing prompts!  How has your writing gone this week?  I hope 2015 is treating you well–so far, I'm in love with this year.  But that's not the point of this post, is it?  The point is prompts, lots of them, so here you go (and don't forget, these come from my Tumblr blog, where you'll find tons more):

#164  Sometimes beginnings, like endings, sneak up on us and sometimes they are definitive.  What are you (or your main character), beginning as this year begins also?

#165  Monday.  And not just any Monday, but the Monday after the holidays are over, once and for all.  Does your main character dread getting back into the swing of things—or love her/his work so much that she/he greets the week eagerly?

#166  Disaster.  The plan was thwarted.  What now?

#167  She was starting the new year with new friends and new projects, and her heart was full.  So much better than the disastrous events of last year.  When she looked back on it, she remembered the horror of…..

#168  Many people in western societies (especially the United States) are infected with the feeling of “not enough.”  It might be not enough money, not enough time, not enough love, anything and everything.  Does this affect your main character?  In what ways?

#169  When she came through the back door that afternoon, she realized that her indoor cat had gotten out.  Inside, she realized that a window had been broken.  But that wasn’t the worst of it, because she also found…..

#170  Her next-door neighbor knocked on the door late one night, asking to borrow some honey.  She invited her neighbor into the kitchen, where she told the most incredible story….

 There you have it, writing inspiration for the week!  Enjoy–and write tons everyday.  Also do check in and tell how the writing is going when you get a chance.

    #164 My protagonist and I begin the year with issues. His are more focused, singular if you will. He presses on, as I do. Things cannot, nor will they, stay as they are. Before the year ends, we will have finally shirked off the chains that bind us, that hold us down. For the first time in years we will face life with a sense of completeness, fulfillment. New beginnings, and this one in particular, are not always in January, but it is coming.

    I so understand #166. Real Life has slapped me about lately. And my MC, too. 😉

    As they say, s#%t happens.  It really does!  And you just have to roll with it, frustrating as it is.
