Writing Prompt #160

Usually, the spam I receive tries to sell me viagra, percocet or vicodin. Today, I received four emails that sent me writing prompts. I’m sure it wasn’t intentional, but how great are lines like these:

She must have been a clipper.

Like an actual ship? Wow. Okay.

Bink tore his attention from the flute.

To do/look at what? Is he a kid? An adult in the symphony? What’s the disruption?

Just stand and wait for them? They really were going to torture Luna!

Who will stand and wait? The protagonist? Is he waiting for the torturers? Why not JUST SAVE LUNA. Okay yeah, I screamed, but she’s right there, and you wait? Damn it, save the girl. Bink makes a random appearance in that email too. Hum, guess that’s what distracted him from the flute.

So use one of those lines for today’s writing prompt. Or all of them.



  1. The first one cracked me up, I think I’m going to go with that and see how it turns out… 🙂 Maybe later on, if I have the time, I will go ahead and save Luna!

    • I know, me too. We have a boat that runs between Victoria and Seattle called the Clipper. I had to laugh. That’s one of the reasons I couldn’t help but wonder if she was an actual ship.
