No need to delay any further, so let’s get this party started!

Prompts for Mutant 750 #58

Here’s a quick review of how the regular Mutant 750 Writing Challenge works. You get two prompts: A word prompt and a visual prompt. 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. You have until Thursday at 8PM ET to submit. Email us if you have any questions.

Here are your prompts:

    Hooray! I’m so excited to see the Mutant 750 challenge back! I’ll try to submit something but it’s going to be rough; getting ready to head to a writers conference this weekend and have other writing priorities, ack!
