Master Class 19: Lopsided Inspiration

Master Class 19: Lopsided Inspiration
February 8, 2016 7 Comments Master Class, Writing Prompts Stephanie Ayers

The Master Class has returned! Every week, I will introduce you to three prompts. Choose one, write about it, link up, and move to the head of the class. It’s that simple.

The rules:

  1. Read the prompts.
  2. Write a story answering the prompt. This can mean you use the prompt as your title, somewhere in your story, or as the idea.
  3. Please share the prompt you chose.
  4. Share the url to your story in the comments OR, if you don’t have your own blog, share your story in the comments. Either way, it will be seen.
  5. Please keep your stories pg-13 or under since this is a public page. Add trigger warnings where necessary. Keep vulgarity to a minimum.
  6. Think outside the box. These prompts are meant to challenge you.
  7. Have FUN!

Your prompts for this week:

    I chose “triggered penance,” and combined it with a prompt from Be Kind Rewrite for my story, “Never Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth.”
