Monday’s Muse Writing Prompt: August 3rd


OPENING LINE (S): “That’ll be 86 bucks, kid. And I don’t take checks. Cash only.” Mr. Lancaster wiped his greasy hands with an even greasier towel. The expression on his face told tale that he didn’t think Harlan was really serious in purchasing the old junker. Boy was he wrong.”

RULES: Using the above line and the picture provided, (Or one of your own choosing) create a story (or even a poem) within 15 to 20 minutes. Once you have finished your super awesome masterpiece, add a link in the comments section of this  post to your story for others to read, as well as a link on your page back to this original post for others to follow along and write with as well. In your “tags” section, add the tag “Monday’s Muse.”

If you do not have a blog of your own send me an email and I will post your lovely words here on my blog.


My results will be posted on Thursday August 6th under the FICTION tab, then the WRITING PROMPTS AND EXERCISES, then MY WRITING PROMPT RESULTS.

    Tis the first Monday of September, and true to my word, I am back at it again with the “Monday’s Muse” Writing Prompts. This prompt earned a round 2 since I failed to accept my own challenge when it was originally posted! I hope you will join with me and give this one a go. My results will be posted on Thursday September 10th. Cheers!
