Muse on Monday – January 24, 2022

It is a beautiful snowy here and looking out the window of the Green-Walled Treehouse, all you can see is white all around. It maybe be blinding, but all that white just makes the green walls of the treehouse stand out even more.

Writing, just like a green blob in the middle of a white field, is all about contrast. Sometimes the most memorable stories have the most striking differences. Surprise the reader, fascinate them. Make them curious.

This week’s challenge is to write an adventure story. Not in the jungle or on a pirate ship, but in a guinea pig farm. Doesn’t sound very adventurous? Well, that’s the challenge. You can work in a scarecrow too and anything else you want.

If you write a story and want to share it, you can submit it at this link or email it to info@greenwalledtreehouse.com. I might pick one to publish next Monday when the new prompt comes out.

(click the headings of each prompt for a description of it.)

  1. All pigs beware. I’ve always had a soft spot for them which led me to give up bacon, something I loved. I could see myself breaking them all out, like busting them out of jail. Can see them all running, oinking happily…what did that pig say? Free at last…Free at last. πŸ™‚
