Writing Prompt 9/22/18 – Obsession


No matter the time of day, his thoughts turned ever to the case, to that fragile, crumpled body lying at the base of the willow…


Her idee fixe compelled her to follow him, despite the racing of her heart, rattling in her chest like the war drums of some agued god…


“You’re obsessed with the damned things… sometimes… sometimes I think you like your trinkets more than us!”

Writing Prompts 9/8/18

Theme (by popular vote): Lost in a dream.

Prompt #1

Pulled up through through the clouds, as if by some invisible hand, he was filled with fear and wonderment in equal measure. He wanted to keep flying but he didn’t want to fall…


Prompt #2

Dreamer, lost in the misty corridors of Forgetfulness, paused to observe a stranger, advancing down from the wide, outer dark. Thoughts spooled round and out of the newcomer’s head like a pluming mask of yarn and once the distance had been closed, he reached into Dreamer’s head and plucked out a gleaming strand of mind.

“Fear here bares the texture of cotton. You’ll learn to appreciate it… in time.”


Prompt #3

She knew she was dreaming, there was no other explanation for walking woods and floating mice, yet no matter what she did she could not wake. She even tried sitting atop the jellyfish chairs but they refused to sting! She spied a man-faced jackal atop a log and promptly demanded to be eaten.

Writing Prompts 9/6/18

Writing prompts – a word or sentence meant to act as the catalyst to a piece of prose or poetry – is a very useful tool for generating ideas, producing more motivation and increasing one’s writing output generally. Most writing prompts, however, are just a single word, and usually, a word that can be used extremely broadly like “love” or “fight” or “sexy.” That is, of course, fine, but it doesn’t really give a struggling writer much in the way of a template. So, on the regular, Logos will be putting out some writing prompts which will be far more detailed and specific (and thus more challenging but, we hope, fruitful) than the standard fair. If you use our prompts tag our admin on twitter at @KaiterEnless and include the writing prompt as a hashtag and we’ll repost your story and if its really good we might just promote in on our site itself before our weekly prompts themselves.

The rules (to have your story re-posted): Use the premise (you don’t have to use all of the words given precisely) as the basis for a fiction story. Can be no shorter than 100 words. There is no maximum (if longer than the 280 twitter character limit, just thread it with sequential numbers). The story must have a beginning, middle and end (it doesn’t need to be conclusive, could be a cliffhanger, but it should wrap up at least some of the building action). Best of luck.

Theme: Speculative extraterrestrial endeavors (so look up your planets)

Prompt #1

Galilean moon expedition. Permanent Evropa colony, Minos One.


Prompt #2

Advanced aerial warfare above Jupiter gas-harvesting station.


Prompt #3

Mineral magnates of the Martian Mining Federation (MMF) convene over looming threat of rogue Cytek ore harvester.
