I’d like to take a quick moment to thank everyone who has helped to make this place such a vibrant writing community! It’s wonderful to see you guys reading each other’s submissions and offering such great feedback. Keep it up – and keep spreading the word.

Prompts for Mutant 750 #29

Before we get to this week’s prompts, here’s a quick review of how our Mutant 750 Writing Challenge works. We give you two prompts: A word and something visual. You have to use both prompts in your submission. You write a flash fiction/micro story or a poem (max. 750 words) and post it on your blog. You include our badge, which you should see in the right sidebar (just copy all of the text beneath the badge and paste it into the HTML or Text view of your post). Then you add your link to the Inlinkz grid at the bottom of this page, and go read all the other submissions.

April 15th marks Leonardo da Vinci‘s 563rd birthday. I don’t know about you, but my favourite pieces of da Vinci’s work are his sketches. So this week, your visual prompt is the sketch of da Vinci’s glider, which was designed with inspiration from his bat wing sketch at the top of the page. You will find both of your prompts below.

Word Prompt:

Dream (verb)

A cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal.

(Definition 2)

Visual Prompt:
