This idea is gratefully borrowed, with permission, from Brynn Stein. Brynn’s Week 1 prompt post can be found here! The idea of doing prompt posts was something I’d been kind of thinking about beforehand, but it hadn’t quite crystallized ’til I read Brynn’s post via the Dreamspinner mailing list. (Do go check it out! I wrote a fill here.)
Basically, I’ll post weekly prompts for a freewrite. You can answer with a descriptive paragraph or a short scene or even a complete story if you’re so inspired. Post your response in the comments, or post it at your own journal and comment with a link. You can do art too, or fannish stuff — whatever you like! I’m just hoping to inspire a few people. (And I’ll be filling my own prompts, can’t help myself.)
This week’s prompt is: Drawing on skin.
Tattoos? Body paint? Kink? Magic involving painting words or runes on people? Necessary notations for surgery? Kids with magic markers? Go wild!
