Writing Prompts

The Norman Galaxy of Writers will offer monthly writing prompts. If you are inspired and want to see your answer published here, send your response to: Cuethelight@cox.net. Please remember, however, that if you want to use what you have written for a writing contest, many contests do not allow entries which have been previously published.

The  new prompt: When life is too much, I always . . .

The February prompt: I can't write because . . .

By the 2019 Galaxy President Dan Snell: I can’t write because of all my great ideas . I mean yesterday, there was that wonderful concept for a play about marionettes that come alive but never eat. You see the implications! Or maybe an epic poem about constipation. No. My wife would never approve. Not exactly approve, just refuse to listen. Or how about a novel based on a graphic novel? But except for Maus, I haven’t really read a graphic novel. Better write that down as To Do; otherwise, I’ll forget it. Just like that dream about another comic novel about forest service personnel in California. Better go to California. Or a short poem about coffee. No appeal like coffee. I should get some ready for tomorrow. Or am I out of coffee? A rondolet, that’s it, about going to the grocery store: the repeated line: I could probably get it cheaper elsewhere, but this is where I am. Also: study rondolets.
That’s why I can’t write. Wait: That could be a rondolet!
