Writing Prompt – Writer Igniter

This week’s prompt is from a random shuffle of the Writer Igniter! Let’s get going!

Character: Class Clown

Situation: Goes on an exotic vacation

Prop: Paint chip sample

Setting: village street, narrow and lined with compact cars on one side

Mark was looking out the curtainless window at the road below when his mother came into the room. The asphalt road sloped down a gentle hill like a river between cliffs made of pastel colored, three-storey houses. He’d never seen houses like these before.

“Mark,” his mother said,”you haven’t finished unpacking.”

Mark’s shoulders slumped.

“I thought we were going on an exotic vacation.” He didn’t try to hide the sullenness in his voice.

“If I had told you we were moving, you’d have refused to come, and it would’ve been stressful all around,” she said. “This way, it’s done, and you just have to live with it. Cheer up, you get to choose the color of your room.”

He stared down at the paint chip sample she tossed onto the bed as she walked out of the room.

It’s not award winning, but I think I did ok. Let me see your work – leave it in the comments or just link to it! I’d be happy to read it.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

  1. You did great – not everyone can think of something to write when given this many prompts. (I end up finding them more constraining than prompting, lol…)


    1. This one ended up being a bit difficult. The paint chip sample threw me off lol. Do you think I should leave off one of the items in the prompt? I could change up everything except the character so you only get three items but you don’t know exactly which ones. 🙂

      1. Whatever you feel is challenging works, I’m sure. I’m not much of a writer anyway, so your thoughts are much more relevant here.
