Prompt: Storymatic Card Set

My family’s annual Christmas raid on my Amazon wish list yielded the marvelous Storymatic set of over 500 cards designed to provide story prompts for writers, gamers, road trips, teachers, and more. I’ve used several cards in previous prompts.

Tonight I am going to indulge in some extended reading, with a view to one of my new blog goals: book reviews.

But I leave you with these prompts, which you may use in any combination:

Person with a large scar
Last night before leaving town

Challenge: Write non-stop for 15 minutes, and see what you get! Maybe a charcter sketch, maybe the beginning of a story, maybe stream-of-consciousness…and often, that’s where the real “stuff” lies…

Share here if you choose!

And so, with a loving heart, I offer you
I’ve heard many translations. Here’s one I love:
The light of the universe that shines within me recognizes
the light of the universe that shines within you.

Dogs in House
Houdini, Brindle

Music Playing
Adam Ben Ezra, “Awesome Bass Solo
