Still Monster Mashing

1 Nov

Halloween was yesterday, but I’m still in the mood. Maybe it’s because the day of fright is still approaching for the characters in my WIP (work-in-progress) or the bowl of fun sized candy on my dining room table? Either way, I figured no one would mind if I threw out a Halloween themed Prompty Tuesday.

It’s been a while since I shared a Musicality writing exercise with you. Because of my mood, I can’t think of a better song to use than one of my fright fest favorites, The Monster Mash. When I was little I used to dance around the living room, listening to this on a cassette tape. Every time I reached the end of the song, I would stop, rewind it, and let the dance party commence. Whether you take your inspiration from the images, song, or both, here is your prompt for the week:

Imperial Chicken predicts the future.

5 Apr

I missed three Prompty Tuesdays while my laptop was out of commission. Here are the writing prompts I had planned on sharing with you, including a new category called scenarios. Enjoy!

Write a scene involving: getting lost, a fortune-teller, and watermelon.

A rogue chicken picks up the fight against demons.

When people hear the Imperial March, they think of Darth Vader and Star Wars.

This is your main character’s theme song. Is your MC a badass in an alternate universe or maybe a geeky kid out for vengeance? Start writing and find out what your mind has in store.

The awesome thing about writing prompts is their versatility. They can be used individually or together to create a new experience. For this Prompty Tuesday, combine one, two, or three of the prior exercises.

Happy writing!

Prompty Tuesday with a side of music

28 Sep

I just picked up an old Franz Ferdinand album and I’m slightly addicted to it much to my roommates’ displeasure. Apparently, they don’t like it when I play songs on a loop for hours on end. So, I thought I would post a music inspired writing prompt to give me an excuse to hit the back button when this song stops playing.  *grin*

Commencing Prompty Tuesday in 5… 4… 3… 2…

Write a scene based on the lyrics of your favorite song. It doesn’t have to be your absolute favorite, but it should be something that’s (for you iTunes users out there) on your five stars list and you know very well.

Happy writing!
