Rainy Days and Mondays: Prompt sets



We are four for five so far, on our Rainy Days and Mondays prompts! They've drawn out scenes, chapters, ficlets, and even a brand-spanking-new long form fic already!

This week, I thought I'd try a trio of 'three things' prompts provided by an online prompt generator....



Here they are, the sets I liked best. I think they've got the potential to serve in a variety of genres - you could go angsty, romantic, fluffy, hurt/comfort.

Set 1:
muddy boots by a door
a damp towel
an old quilt/comforter

Set 2:
a flat tire
a bag of takeout food
an unwanted 8pm phone call

Set 3:
a red rose
a silver photo frame near a rain-splattered window
delayed receipt of a letter/call/text

To me there's also something moody about them, but perhaps that's just me.

Feel free to use them as-is or to mix them up. Or... maybe write them on paper, cut the paper up, throw it in the air - see what pattern you get from the pieces and what it suggests. Ha. :)

Hope you have a great, creative week - and sorry for being a bit late with this one! I'll aim to do better next weekend.
