Outlining A Weeks Worth of Prompts

Okay, so I've been working on some ideas as for putting up some new prompts and I think I have in ready to put out to the world.  I've come up with ideas for each day of the week (Monday-Friday + weekends).  I don't know how well this will work, but I do know that since I started posting on this blog, I've found more inspiration to write than I have in the past 2 years.  I'm kinda loving it.

So here's the rundown:

MYTHIC MONDAYS--As an ancient history fanatic and lover of all things paranormal, I want to devote this section to just that.  Not sure what I'll come up with yet, but I'll have something on this posted before the day is over.

TUESDAY TITLES--Simply put, I'll come up with some titles and it's up to everyone else to write the story.  I love coming up with titles.  It's usually how I go about starting a new story.  Now they won't all be great, but hopefully they'll give someone out there some inspiration.

WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHY WHEN-SDAYS--Just the basics, Ma'am/Sir.  I'll post the basics, but it's up to everyone else to take it from there.

THRILLER THURSDAYS--This one's going to be all about the scare. I've got a couple ideas in mind, but we'll see where this one takes us.

FRIDAY FREE FOR ALL--My goal is to find sites and/or products for writers that are free to use, download, or whatever.  All I know is that whatever I post on these days will be FREE!!!

WAYWARD WEEKENDS--I was trying to come up with something Saturdays and Sundays and decided to put them into the same squish.  That way we can all take our time.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this one, so I grabbed my handy-dandy Thesaurus and found the word "wayward" and saw the terms "unpredictable" and "impulsive".  Yep, that's the way to spend a weekend.  Anything goes.

So this is my plan.  I'm going to head to my word processor and see what I can come up with.  Wish me luck and play along.  It's just no fun when I'm the only one in the sandbox.  LOL


  1. I think Mystical Monday is going to be my favorite. Don't get me wrong, all of those are fantastic ideas, but I'm a fantasy writer myself, so I can't wait to see what you come up with. Wednesday too. This will be a lot of fun! Can't wait!

  2. Thanks honey. Knowing someone out there is checking them out makes me want to do even more. :)

  3. Lots of fun ideas. I wonder what you'll come up with for Thriller Thursdays.

    1. Thanks Vanessa,

      I've got a couple ideas in mind. Gotta work them out but I hope they work. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Hello Christine,
    This sounds like a lot of fun! :) I like the sounds of Mythic Mondays and Friday Free For Alls!

    1. Thanks honey--glad you stopped by.

      I'm a little intimidated by the Friday thing but I think it'll come out okay.

      So happy to have you stop by the site.
