Daily Inspiration

:iconthe-poetry-cafe: has a 100 theme challenge on their front page.

Dirty Haiku Silly Generator Worth a :giggle: and maybe a little inspiration. Site seems to not be actively running.

:iconsixwordstories: <-This group is always running with prompts and ideas for something short to write.

:iconthe-haiku-club: & :iconhaiku-writers: <- Two great groups to watch if you're getting serious about Haiku writing. A great place to submit any haiku you write for this project that you are particularly proud of (but don't share them all! We want some new poetry to read come 2014 when we all swap!)

:icon100themewriters: <- Not a super active group, BUT, several members have put up their "100 theme" lists so there are plenty of little ideas to sort through.

Per The Wiki Master - Fragments
Literary fragments may comprise[1]:
works inadvertently left unfinished or never completed by their authors
surviving extracts of larger works subsequently lost as wholes
works deliberately constructed as fragmentary pieces
The deliberately undeveloped literary fragment played an especially important role in literary Romanticism. German literature of the Romantic period has left many such fragments. In English literature, note Coleridge's unfinished (but published as a fragment in 1816) "Kubla Khan; or, A Vision in a Dream: A Fragment" .

Join a Word War! Word WarsWord Wars Chat Tour |  Word Wars | Chat Tour Schedule
What is a Word War?
It's a friendly competition to see who can write the most in a set period of time. This can be over the course of a month with daily interval updates, or over the course of a few minutes with instant results.
In a chatroom setting the game is fast paced fun with the timer set to a few minutes and participants compete in several rounds. Speed writing is key!
Instructions
This is the standard way the Chat Tour hosts a Word War. If you are hosting your own Word War game you can modify these rules and timers for your own purpose, but be sure to inform all participants of the variations before you start!
Step by Step Instructions:
1. The host will tell everyone to prepare for the round, and allow a minute or two for participants to open their word proc


Creative Writing Now A great external link (which was featured on Oprah, no joke) of prompts.

:iconprojectdfc: and :iconformfindsfunction: both have great resources on forms (and new structures you can try out!)
DFC 2012 Form Chart by kiwi-damnation

One Word a great website which prompts you with a word and gives you 60 seconds to write about it. Suggested by :icondawn181:

"If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." ― Ray Bradbury

Hey hey hey!  TwilightPoetess here, first to apologize for falling a TAD BIT behind on writing prompts, and second to say, I'm here now, so let's get this party rolling! (just don't roll an ankle, please.)

Feel free to use any of the following as prompts to kick start, refocus, or rediscover your muse this week!  Submit as usual up to two pieces to the correct gallery folder; please include in your artists' comments that this is a PROMPT RESPONSE for Glory-Be-Project, and state which prompt you're using (or link to the image/song, if it's a visual or musical prompt).  

Visual Prompts:

Our Ends Are Beginnings by ParadisiacPicture  Smoke Signals by Myndzeye  snow by eXXeQt
Ipocondrie by MarcelaBolivar  City of Dreams by Helga-Hertz  Le Cabinet de Curiosites - Clockwork Fairy by AlexandraVBach

Word Prompts (use as many or as few as you'd like!):

:bulletblack: courtship, mail, double-jointed, ritual, oncoming
:bulletblack: redundant, nightlife, sledgehammer, hoarsely, parrot
:bulletblack: prototype, menu, fabric, plagiarize, inkling

Other Prompts:

:bulletblue: Write a Cadae!  Be as abstract or as realistic as you'd like.
Created by deinktvis, the cadae  is based on the digits of pi.
Syllable count is as follows: 3|1|4|1|5|9|2|6|5|3|5|8|9|7|9|3|2|3

:bulletblue: Using this tutorial, write a Jueju!  The Jueju form dates back to fifth century China and was a very popular form in the Tang Dynasty. It is most commonly known in its five syllable (wujue) and seven syllable (qijue) variations. It consists of quatrains (minimum= 1, maximum= as many as you like) that are rhyming couplets. You can choose either wujue or qijue, not both.

Until next week, guys--can't wait to see what you think up for these prompts! :squee: Happy writing, and please, feel free to sound off in the comments about prompts you'd like to see in the future--or shoot the group a note, if you'd rather stay anonymous!  Help US...to help YOU this year!
