1. This technically isn’t a prompt, per se, but I’ve been “plagued” with things that need to be written down somewhere before I lose them. So, technically not a prompt. Sorry.
2. For the past three nights, I’ve had dreams regarding past and present fandoms. The first dream had something to do with the X-Men; the second had everything to do with the Avengers; and the third everything to do with Dragon Age. I understand that not everyone is interested in dreams – though I am wildly fascinated by them, so I won’t go into the exact details of the dreams.
3. The last dream prompted a story idea. It’s not fleshed out, as all stories from dreams go. And since I’ve never written a conman story, I have no idea what to do. I’ve put on hold several books from the library to help me get a feel for them. Among them: The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch (which my husband swears we have but can’t find – typical) and The Egyptologist by Arthur Philipps. I have American Gods, so I’ll reread that as well. I’ll do some discovery writing and see what sticks. Usually, I do an outline before I plunge myself into a story, but you know, different genres sometimes call for different strategies.
4. I am utterly obsessed with this video of this song. I don’t know why. It also prompted a story idea for me which involves reincarnation, love, and a trickster god. No, not Loki. This one already has seeds sown and are germinating in my head. We’ll see where it leads.
