Saturday Story Prompts

eBook prompts are just a click away!

1. Four yards of fabric costs her a month’s spending money, but she can feel the dress itching to be free.

2. Magic is a skill that anyone can learn, but that golden ticket is bought with years of tedious study and endless repetition and few are willing to pay the price.

3. The dragon is barn sour and refuses to leave the nests unless the rest of the wing is also in the air. She’s fixed the behavior in horses dozens of times, but she’s not quite sure how to fix a lizard.

4. Everyone has stories from The Day The Elevators Broke.

5. “I think I might have made a mistake…”
“You think?
“I was trying to be polite!”

The last place Simon expected to wake up was on an alien spaceship, but there are worse ways to start a NaNo novel…

This is the daily posting of my 2016 NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) attempt at a novel. It’s a brand new world and new fictives and although I gave a shot at planning things (see: Chasing Falling Stars), it’s another pantsing effort. So MuseFics away! 🙂

Read at your own risk/amusement: There will most likely be spelling and grammatical errors afoot as well as flat out bad writing, info dumps, plot holes, contradictions/retcons, uneven characterization and pacing.

eBook collections galore!

1. In the caves you learn that death always follows light.

2. She sung the pack awake when the sun rose behind a layer of clouds and her sister led the call when the day broke on blue skies.

3. “Have you ever stopped to think about why we have these rules before you break them?” The elder wizard asked tiredly as they finished quenching the last of the fire demons.

4. Downtown was half office buildings and half industrial yards and for the first time in her life the phrase ‘wrong side of the train tracks’ actually made sense.

5. I have spent my life collecting other people’s memories. Photographs, keepsakes, stories plucked from the rubble and displayed in art galleries in the vain hope that I can keep the world from another war.

1. They might not understand the words, but every child old enough to sing has memorized the ballads of the Long Summer.

2. The car is held together by duct tape, coat hangers, and more curses than prayers.

3. Fear is the last thing a predator wants to sense; a scared meal is a moving meal. If you want to live long enough to have cubs of your own, learn to soothe and not terrify.

4. Metal armor only amplifies the heat of the dragon’s lair and they shed layers as they creep inwards until only thin layers of cloth and leather protect them from the flames.

5. “Your sister hates me already, I think.” He rubbed his jaw where the bruise was blooming. “And I haven’t even started.”
