Prompt Tuesday #43

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!


Finding prompts is hard. I try to find a verity from different sources and it takes time for me to locate good ones. Today I stumbled on a prompt generator which was really fun. Here are a few of the prompts I found there:

Whenever I study for a test I try to envision the end goal. What is the purpose of the test. What I am I to learn, what are my teachers to gauge about my knowledge and skill. Then I prepare.

The tests are designed to push you to the very limit, beyond what you would find in the average scan. As Professor Denar would say - "If you are prepared for the most dangerous, the safe is that much safer."

    Also, if you're up for it, I'm hosting an open mic blog hop, you video yourself reading your work out loud. It's my birthday, too, so I'm trying to add this as pressure for participation :)
