Writers block, defined as “a usually temporary condition in which a writer finds it impossible to proceed with the writing of a novel, play, or other work,” is a plague that we’ve all dealt with at one point or another in our writing careers. Ideas are hard to come by sometimes. Ideas are like fireflies; they flit in and out of mental vision, but they are hard to catch.
Keeping this in mind, a writing prompt will be offered here every Sunday (in different formats, of course). The length of what you write is your decision entirely. It is my hope that these prompts will spark creativity and kickstart the writing process.
This week’s prompt: A teenage boy wants to be part of the “in” crowd, so he has a computer chip implanted in his brain that makes him popular. He soon finds out that popularity comes with its own set of problems, and he tries to get the chip removed. He finds out that removing the chip is impossible because he signed a non-revocable contract for a lifetime of wearing the chip.
