Muse on Monday – January 10, 2022

It’s time for Muse on Monday again. This week’s prompt is a first line of a story.

The world ended on a Friday, which was a surprise.

Try this exercise:

  1. Think of a sentence to go with this first line. It doesn’t have to the one after it, just one that might be connected somehow to a story. If it’s a good sentence, write it down.
  2. Think of another sentence. Write that down too.
  3. Now we have a triangle of sentences. Think of the area these three sentences cover. Try to picture the story that might live in that space.
  4. If you have 1-2 sentences, share them in the comments. If you write a whole story, share it with me in the submission form here or email it to me at I’d love to read it.

If you have an idea for a prompt, either a picture, first line, or anything else, leave me a comment or send me an email at

Have a great week! Come back next Monday for another story prompt.
