Grid - One Word Prompt


Grid - One Word Prompt

The word that you have to include in this prompt is "GRID"


  • Make the piece shorter than 1000 words.

  • It could be fiction or non-fiction.

Here are some suggestions for you to get going - (or that you can completely ignore)

  1. Write about how you are going off the grid.

  2. Write about how you are staying on the grid.

  3. Tell a story about how you like to draw grids. (People do that right?)

  4. Talk about that average movie or video game called Grid. Cause let's face it; average is the best anything called Grid can be.

What I would write with this prompt - (that would probably be wrong)

I'd mention the word briefly for a line and then go on a rant about something completely different. Like how I can't stand the 1988 Dodgers or that ice cream is overrated. If you asked me how the piece has to do with a grid, I'd point back to the one line I wrote. That is how much I would pay attention to the word grid. I'd mock the creator of the prompt because writing about a grid is pretty dumb. There are scandals, and controversies, and questions out there in the world and I am writing about a grid. No thanks. And no, I am not doing that here. Mocking the creator, as I am the creator, is too damn meta for me right now.

Anyway on the post.

Listen to the decent suggestions, ignore them and come up with something better, or go on a rant about how you think ice cream is overrated too, whatever you do, try to pretend that you are writing about a grid.

GRID is your one word for today's prompt.

Good luck with your (average) writing.
