Saturday Scribes Writing Prompt: August 1st

It’s back to basics for the month of August. This week’s prompts are courtesy of Magpie. Next week’s writing prompts will be hosted by The Amazing Mr. Darcy (same bat time, same bat channel, different guy inside the suit).

Theme: Catalyst


As usual, remember comments are semi-moderated, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away. Between me and Mr. Darcy we’ll make sure everything gets posted. Newbies can learn more about Saturday Scribes here (including how to do a permalink to your post) and read the prompt guidelines here.

    So what did these prompts do to my mind? – why they made me think of submarines, terrorists, cold sweats and wedding dresses . . .

    . . . what? Those things didn’t just pop into your mind too?

    Here’s a short tale. Fewer words, but the words were still challenging.

    No idea where this came from. Kind of a futuristic origin story.
