Writing Prompt: Day 288

Pelky Sisters

288.jpgDay 288 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Write one character from seven perspectives…today is his/her pet. 

Shannon: I love Jake. He let’s me sleep in the bed with him, he takes me on walks, and feeds me food under the table. He never calls me a bad dog, and he gives the best belly rubs. I can’t wait until he comes home.

YES – these are real.group.band.names. REAL.

Anyhow, there are 10 selections. Pick a few, one or two – and create something, anything – maybe 3?

Let yourself just have a ball with these. Create whatever – short story, flash fiction, poem. Just play.

Maybe you want to write some micro flash bursts? 3 lines for each band name? or maybe you just pick one and use it as a topic?

Knock yourself out and enjoy – and no, I’m not suggesting you google and YouTube some of the groups, unless you’re really that curious –…
