Dialogue Prompt – Bowling

Writing Prompt

This new dialogue prompt is an interesting one by Shauna Philp. I think what is most interesting is that the speaker thinks they have a choice in a situation that is clearly being run at someone else’s whim.

I think it most likely that these two or more characters involved in this prompt have known each other at least a little bit of time in order for the one of them to feel comfortable joking to the other or others about their situation.

Pampers Name Generator?

As with the Huggies one I did a while back in November, this one was a bit of a surprise. I guess I shouldn’t be surprise that a site dedicated to diapering the bottoms of babies would want to get your attention even before the baby is born with suggestions for names.

It’s not quite the same kind of random name generator as some of the ones before, but it’s definitely worth putting in here. It also needs to be said before I move on that you have to have an account with the site to access most of the names that it generates. From what I can see of the list without signing in, I do believe it is worth the effort of creating an account and I probably will do so at a later date.

Dialogue Prompt – Purple Hands

Writing Prompt

As you can tell I like The Fake Redhead‘s prompts. This one is funny. There really isn’t a lot to it and not much to say about what is there, but I will try and see what I can say.

I guess I will start with the color. Although it’s probably not relevant, purple is a color often associated with royalty. This has to do with the rarity of the material used to make a dye to make cloth and other things purple.

Dialogue Prompt – Sarcasm

Writing Prompt

This prompt from The Fake Redhead is a definitely one that fits under the betrayal or trust category I mentioned previously. As the first person says, it’s hard to know if this is sarcasm or not. It’s only one word, but depending on how it’s said it can convey many things.

Since the first character says they don’t know if it’s sarcasm or not, I would assume there is no eye rolling and that the word was probably said pretty straight. I also get the idea that there probably is a long history between these two. They aren’t necessarily close, but I do think they’ve known each other for quite some time.

Writing Prompt – Retired Special Ops

Writing Prompt

I don’t even know what to think of this one. It definitely seems like the character in this prompt is an anti-hero. As I have never been in the military, I don’t know what it’s like to return to civilian life. I am pretty sure that being bored with life is not an excuse to try and see who is a better killer between you and a hired hitman.

Personally, I haven’t the slightest clue how to access the dark web. I know it exists and that at least some of the stuff on there is stuff that probably is bad, but that’s really all I know.

Writing Prompt – Villain’s Love

Writing Prompt

One of the first questions that comes to mind is wondering what exactly is the villains goal. Obviously using the love interest against the hero is not uncommon, but what is the villain trying to accomplish. It’s left open to the writer, but I am curious as to what it is in the mind of the person who created the prompt.

Something thing that caught my attention about this one is that the main character is neither the hero nor the villain. They are the love interest. Can you imagine if the superhero stories we know and love were told exclusively from the point of view of the love interest. How would that change them?

Writing Prompt – Younger Sister

Writing Prompt

Imagine living in a world where superheroes and supervillains are real. Have you got that image in your head? Okay, good. Now, think about your siblings, especially if they are younger. If you don’t have any think about your friends and the relationship they have with their siblings, especially younger ones.

Now imagine that something happened to that younger sibling you or your friend cares so much about, that they disappeared without a trace and you don’t know what happened to them or how to find them.

Writing Prompt – Mom’s Favorite

Writing Prompt

There are a lot of things you can potentially accomplish in life. Some of these are far more of interest to the general public than others. I think, however, that just because the general public is more interest in them does not make them more important to you.

What makes this writing prompt fun is that there are five siblings involved, four of whom are known to be accomplishing things that the general public would find amazing while the fifth siblings, the main character, is implied to not be doing anything so generally considered amazing and yet, it is entirely possible that the other four envy their middle sibling.

Dialogue Prompt – Kissing You

Writing Prompt

This one makes me laugh. It’s an altogether very serious subject depending on what actually happened, but it still makes me laugh.

Considering how little is here, there really isn’t a lot that we know about this situation. We don’t know the gender of either person talking nor do we know their age or how long they have known each other or what their relationship is outside of this exchange beyond the fact that it almost definitely does not include kissing as a normal event.

Writing Prompt – Relief

Writing Prompt

Angst prompts are scary. That is what I have decided after looking for one to share with you. The first one I am sharing is from Tomi Adeyemi. Unlike the last one by her from a couple days ago, which wasn’t exactly sweet, but it didn’t show evidence that the PoV character had given up, this one does show someone who has given up. I cannot imagine what would lead to this level of being ready for it all to end, which is exactly what makes it so interesting.
