Writing Prompt – I Love You Villain

This is the first prompt I have brought here from Food for Thought writing prompts, which appear to be by Addison Brooks. I couldn’t find a website for Addison, so I am including a link to the pinterest board instead.

Writing Prompt

I’m not exactly good at romances and honestly I’m not sure if this is a romance or some sort of trick on the part of the hero. It could be either which is one of the things that makes it a good prompt, there are multiple paths you could take that would be very different.

Writing Prompt – Interrogation Photos

Writing Prompt

This prompt makes me think of an episode of Mission Impossible that I watched years ago. It was an interesting story, as they tend to be, where they were trying to convince a man that they had found the Fountain of Youth. This involved making photos that looked like they were from a long time ago and over many generations of the same person.

Writing Prompt – Magical Drinks

Can you imagine if your drink had magical properties? Magic is something that many people like to imagine and wonder about and it’s something we don’t know, not really, how we would react if it actually was real. With this prompt, there is a lot packed in and a lot to wonder about.

Writing Prompt

The first thing to wonder about is the idea that magic is returning to the world. That implies that magic was once in the world and something removed it somehow. With that concept, you must wonder as what that is and how it came to be such.

Writing Prompt – Sewer Portals

This writing prompt is an interesting what-if that would work wonderfully in fantasy or sci-fi, depending on how you decided to handle it.

Writing Prompt

Unlike most prompts, this one has a very specific location, thought of course you could change it if you want, too. With the various elements listed, it does give a general time frame as well. It has to be after the US and Australia both existed, presumably as nations, and also had some sort of sewer system.

Character Bank – Rival Half-Siblings

This is the first character bank entry I have made that I am including on here. I have others that will be making an appearance over the next year and I hope you like them.

This one is inspired by a story I saw, although the situation is generic enough that it probably appears dozens of times in stories.

Writing Prompt

A man with a child loses his wife and remarries. The man may or may not be concerned with the wellbeing of his child, but not long after he remarries his second wife has a child of her own and she wants her child to be the most important. It turns out that the younger half-sibling is a better at something that is important to the parents or maybe to the society they are in as a whole.

Dialogue Prompt – Bowling

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.

Writing Prompt

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

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.

Writing Prompt

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

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.

Writing Prompt

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

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.

Writing Prompt

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.
