What is this place?
Armin wiped the blood from his maw. The hunger was rising again and overtaking his sense of caution. He tried to recall how many he had bitten without finishing them. He drew a blank. Looking around, he found a spot and began to dig a trench for the corpses he created. He reached for the third one; it stirred.
Shit, it’s a pup.
He quickly covered the trench and snatched the pup and placed him on his shoulders. He bolted through the forest to his lair.

I would say it’s been quite the journey, but that would be understating it. These past eight weeks have tested my resilience, strength, and sense of humor, but as Elton John said in his song, “I’m still standing.”
Has happened since the last compilation? Read on, my friends.

On that page, there is a button you press that randomizes four aspects to create the prompt. It’s imaginative and different. Most of the prompts I run into are in graphical format.

So, let’s see how fun this adventure with a gangster is going to be.
On the Wrong Foot

I’m a Puppy Now?
“Fresh pup? That sounds like I need to be housebroken or something.”
Gloria held her hand to her mouth, but the chuckle couldn’t be suppressed, “Well, in a way, it’s kind of like that.”
Angie threw her hands in the air, “Great, so where do we put the newspaper, and where are my bowls?”

Love them or hate them, they are everywhere. From everyday travel to near-death experiences, tunnels will forever be a part of our lives. Gephyrophobia is the term for an irrational fear of tunnels. Yeah, I had to look that one up.
The burning question is, “How am I going to tackle this one?”
Prompt: The tunnel is the only way out.
This one is short, VERY short. 🙂

This prompt is interesting. Why you ask? It can provoke many different short snippets from the mundane to the suspenseful.
I will admit the first time I read it, I pictured a small child constantly asking for a toy in a store until the parent got exasperated and bought it just to get the child to be quiet. I also got a darker impression of a demon coming to claim his end of the bargain only to find itself in an argument with the person who struck the deal. I had to think about this one.

Prompt: ‘Give me what I want and I’ll leave you alone.’
So, this is an interesting one. I know what the term means, but I didn’t expect it. Still, it can be pretty fun to see what happens when I start writing.

Writing prompt: They called him “The Creeper”.

I am back with the writing prompts. I am trying to get back into the swing of things. The chemo and ADHD have teamed up and decided to make me either repeat words or skip more than usual in a sentence.
We will see how this goes. I will do my best to proofread.
Prompt: The photos reminded her of the strange life she’d lived.

Hangovers are Hell
Laura sat there still fuzzy about what happened the night before. She knew she had kept an eye on her drink and never walked away without taking it. She always put her hand over it when she looked away. She did everything right. So how did she wind up in a dark room with a flickering bulb that could go out at any second? Her eyes flew open wide as her mind injected the terror as to what might have happened.
Did he rape me?
