Here's a new collection of prompt fragments to inspire your fiction, poetry, or personal writing. Use them all together, a few at a time, or one by one. The theme of this batch is "reminiscing." Happy writing!
7 Microprompts for Isolation
We've all got new complications in our lives, and one of those is constantly being cramped inside with nowhere to go. This means it might be time to exercise the mind.
The Fairy Door
Every day before breakfast, Mariela crept out to see the fairy’s maze. She took her mother’s old mirror from the top of its mahogany dresser, blowing off the scraps of crumbling wallpaper, and swiped a scone from the cook’s first batch of the day.
7 Microprompts for Voyages
Here we are, on the verge of Nanowrimo month. Last week I was nervous about all the spare time I wouldn't have, but now it's starting to hit--the Nano High. I'm hyped!
7 Microprompts for Selling your Soul
You may or may not have noticed that Google AdSense finally bought my soul after weeks of me trying to sell it. Apologies from Phantasmagorium if the old girl's a little rough around the edges while everything gets figured out.
7 Microprompts for Pariahs
I understand I ought to be outcast from the blogging community for neglecting Phantasmagorium, but I was on the road. So I'll just have you write about outcasts instead!
7 Microprompts for Healing
There's nothing better for healing than sleep--or writing. Having spent my weekend finally getting to do plenty of both, that's my testimony. I'm not snake-oiling you here, folks, some good, cathartic writing will cure what ails you.
7 Microprompts for Vice
We all have certain guilty writing vices. You might not have noticed yours yet, or might be pretending you haven't, but you definitely have them. Some are harder to notice than others, but learning what they are is the Ultimate Final Boss Key to successfully editing your own work.
7 Microprompts for Gatsby
For better or worse, it's Scott Fitzgerald's birthday today--author of "The Great Gatsby," or at least the bits his wife Zelda didn't write. To be perfectly honest, they both sound like the kind of people you would want to go to a party with but the people you would absolutely not want to be your minders for said party.
