Do You Need A Little Prompting?

Do you want to be creative but you’re unsure where to start?

Do you want to be creative but are yet to learn how to sift through the daily activities of life to find new ideas?

Let me provide a solution for you.

On each Friday you will find A Little Prompting(*), a weekly set of stimuli to help get you thinking and ultimately creating.

Each week there will be a given:

  • Theme
  • Random Line Prompt
  • An Image (all images will quote the original source and copyright remains with the original owner of the work. If you’d like to provide a visual prompt let me know and we’ll talk it over).
  • A Song/Music Video
  • A Sensory Suggestion
  • A Quote

The aim is to to use one, some, any or all of the prompts to get you thinking or creating. The prompts are applicable to flash fiction or short stories, poetry, photography, painting, drawing, scripts, short films.

Whatever form you are interested in there will be something here to prompt a few ideas. If there is not, try again next week.

So, here is the first week of A Little Prompting.

Theme – Fear of the inside

Random Line Prompt – Everyday she passed the STOP sign; its hexagonal shape and warning colour blithely ignored.

Image – 

Song/Music Video – 

Kate Miller-Heidke The Tiger Inside Will Eat the Child

Sensory Suggestion – the softness of a newborn’s skin

Quote – 

One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;

The brain has corridors surpassing

Material place – Emily Dickinson

  1. Can I suggest this version of the song

    It was created by the brother of a friend from high school and in and of itself is an awesome visual prompt!
