Writing Prompts

Writing prompts are awesome. They charge my brain when I've fizzled out on my Work In Progress (WiP). I have several sources that I use for writing prompts. There's Writing Excuses (referred to as WE#.# for season and episode), and Chuck Wendig's Friday challenges.

A warning. While my novels and short stories tend to be science fiction, fantasy, or classical retellings that are fun adventures, my flash fiction tends to be very dark. Not all, but most. If you don't like dark or twisted or unhappy endings, (I have specific friends I'm eyeballing right here), this isn't for you.
