Welcome back. I can't believe we have reached another Friday. While racing to finish your anthology story you might find time for one of these prompts. Prompt 758 – Creative Tag – The Garden The new house next door always seems empty but an incredible garden seems to be growing in the backyard. One day your curiosity gets the better of you, you open the side gate, pass through the mushroom circle, and begin to follow some stepping stones that lead to a path. As you walk through the path you see rolling hills, castles, and even swear that a unicorn was standing at the edge of the forest. The problem is you live at the edge of the city and there are no hills, never mind there being castles anywhere close. What happened when you entered the garden? Prompt 759 – Creative Tag – List of Words Use the following words in a story – a troll, a sleeping kitten, a pair of handcuffs, a notebook, and an ugly painting. If one of them appeals to you please feel free to share it on the prompt page. We did have someone write, although it was on an older prompt..

Is it me or are things off? There are major storms, both rain, and snow, across most of North America. There are a few weird animal happenings like a shark being saved in South Africa after going after a bird. There is even my order of postcards getting lost in the mail! Oh well. We shall press forward and focus on writing. How is your writing doing? Is everything going smoothly or are you uninspired? Might I offer some new prompts to you? I might have something to tempt you into writing a new novel or at the very least a new prompt story. Prompt 750 – Creative Tag – Genie During a dig in Turkey you uncover a lamp. The side is covered in an ancient Alembic writing. You decipher it but it seems to make little sense. It seems to be a list of odd directions. Carefully you copy them down and they tell you to name three people, make three wishes, but make none grand. The wishes will double, reverse, and the last words you cannot make out. You rub the lamp but nothing happens. Then you follow the directions, saying your wishes out loud then naming three friends when smoke billows out of the lamp filling the small area making it hard to see. A genie stands before you and begins granting your wishes. You get your first wish and the first person you named gets it twice as much. Your second wish is granted and the second person gets the reverse of it. What happens with your third wish? Prompt 751 – Creative Tag – The Garden You thought it was just an abandoned garden when climbed the fence and dropped down into the garden. The weeds were as high as the corn. It wasn’t until you plucked a tomato that you noticed the garden itself was tended but two inches beyond it had gone to seed hiding most of the tender crops. A moment later a hand gripped your arm like steel and your world changed forever. What happened? So those are the new prompts. Did you do something with last week's prompts?
