Prompt Tuesday #15

Every Tuesday I post a writing prompt and my response. It gives me a chance to exercise my writing muscles outside of my WIP, and hopefully inspire you to write. So enjoy my flash fiction piece and post your own in the comments!

#288 - Use this cliché anywhere in your story: off like a shot


I took of like a shot. Running with all my might. I could see my goal ahead. Before long, my side started to hurt. I pressed my hand into the cramp. I had to keep going. One more step. One more step. I could see the archway up ahead. I could make it. One more step. I passed through the archway and the world around me dissolved. I was safe.


  1. A) This is an awesome idea for the post (the whole writing prompt thing).
    B) When you respond, do you try to just go through and have only short responses, or longer ones? Do you set a goal?

  2. I free write. I have never been good at setting a word count goals. So I just write until the picture I have on my head is on the page.

  3. That's an intriguing bit of worldbuilding you've got there :-)
