Monthly Writing Prompt | May 2022

A stirring inside of you draws you closer to the noise. Blood begins to pound in your ears as your excitement–and apprehension–grows. As the scene comes into focus, it’s not quite what you expected to find, and the faces you see–had hoped to see–aren’t either.


Muse Stimulators:

  • Are the feelings of the POV good or bad?
  • What is the source of the noise?
  • Who are the faces the POV expected to see and who are the ones they find?
  • What was your POV hoping/expecting to be happening?
  • What happens next?

Happy Writing!
