It's May, finally, and lovely Diana at "Myths of the Mirror" has launched a new Speculative Fiction Prompt - #writingprompt - and this is my take! The Mechanical Man 1 - Being another you! Over the years he had lived here, he had always struggled with love and intimacy. No wonder. Every woman he met [...]
Look! How cute! 😀
Finally May, and a new Challenge. 😀
For visually challenged writers, this is an image of a man who is part human and part machine. Behind him are gears and wires as well as a hint of fire or electricity.
Yay! It’s that time again, finally. Thank you to everyone who responded to March’s prompt (we skipped April due to my travels). Now, we’re heading in a new direction once again! Steampunk!
Above is May’s image. If interested, you have until May 23rd to submit a response. Happy Writing!
Here’s how it works:
On the first of every month, I’ll post a speculative fiction prompt from Pixabay. These images are attribution free so you can use them on your blog without worrying about copyright restrictions.
Throughout the month, in order of receipt, I’ll reblog as many of your prompt-inspired creations as I can. And on the last day of each month…

Can't stop listening to Jacqueline Winspear's book about Maisie Dobbs. Sometime, months ago, I listened to the first two ones: "Maisie Doobs" and "Birds of a feather", liked them a lot but then I did other things, listened to other books - and then I forgot about Maisie! Until yesterday evening. I was looking for [...]
Or is it technically four? A added the last day's achievement of writing for the Camp WriMo early in the morning that last day, so in a way, it is four. I realize though, I have to start writing again as soon as possible, since I know, the longer I wait, it has a tendency [...]
And I feel sooooo good!!! Wrote 400+ words late yesterday evening, finished only a few minutes before midnight, but decided to wait until today until adding the word account on the Camp WriMo site. This morning I read the text through, changed a couple of word choices and added a couple of sentences. Then I [...]
Not that late though. Only 6.30PM... and it will probably be at least 7.30 before I've finished writing this post. Or 8.30... or... Oooops! As if I haven't done enough writing lately! I'm really good at my Camp-story. Earlier today I wrote like circa 1000 words or so of really lousy writing. A lot of [...]
Not that long ago, I wrote a short story. (Haven't we all...) Well! This particular one has come to my mind several times lately. It would probably do very well as a kind of Post Scriptum, or epilogue, to my "Eclipse"-story. It's not particularly long, only 719 words - But written in Swedish.. So I'll [...]
Today, I didn't reach 1000 words, but close enough! 967 of them. It's okay! Though I didn't think it was a particular good scene. And not until circa 500 words along the path, it started to feel like a flow again. Though everything doesn't have to be tip-top at the first draft. It seldom is [...]
