Coffee Prompt Mondays


Every Monday I’ll give you a wacky prompt or three to get you over the Monday blues and back to writing after (or during! gasp) your long day back at work.  Take the prompt and a cup of coffee and let your imagination run wild.

Make it a flash piece, a short story or even get inspiration for an entire novel.  Write it up and share it on your blog and link it to the post or just share it in the post’s comments.  As a little incentive to encourage bravery in getting you to post, I’ll critique up to 1,000 words of your piece.
