Because we want to honor you - the writers and members who make this prompt program a success:  we will steal borrow YOUR words and use them as a prompt. That’s right, we will steal borrow from you! Among your posts and stories - there are some beautiful gems... Each week we will pick a snippet, a line, something that tickles our fancy, get your approval to steal borrow and run with it as the weekly prompt. You get final approval on if it's used or not!

The Rules

  1. Go write [something] using either both, or one of our prompts;
  2. Use the quote as an opening line, use it as a closer, or use it in the middle. Just use it in verbatim within your story;
  3. Come back here to link up in the comment section below;
  4. Deadline to enter Saturday, noon CST (5 p.m. GMT);
  5. Only one entry per person. 
  6. We will then blab about it to the world via our Facebook page and our Twitter account;
  7. Be seen by thousands of potential readers!

The Prompts

We're trying something a little different this week. It's sort of free play... no quote, no word, you get to decide what you write about. The inspiration for your story is a photo. Use the image to illustrate a poem, a piece of fiction or non-fiction, a mystery or a humorous piece. You choose.

Don't forget to spread the love, and visit the other participants. Everyone enjoys comments. Please keep any constructive critiques positive.

If you haven't already, leave us a comment with your post link, telling us if you give us permission to “borrow” a line from your entry. If you'd like to have one of your original photos or artwork used as a prompt, include that in your comments too. 

Have fun writing!

Tara and Kirsten

Great pic, Tara -- almost looks like you made a visit to the Ozarks!

Comment by Kenneth Lawson on Thursday

I started a story based on the picture, However it has become way too much of a story to tell in a short format. I think I'll put it aside, and try another idea I had last night,  Even that may prove too much for this short story format, We'll have to see...

Comment by nonamedufus on Thursday

Last week's prompt completely stumped me. I just couldn't get inspired. I thought I was going to go the same route this week until an idea finally popped into my head and prompted me to come up with The Final Act. Hope you guys enjoy it.
