PROMPTuesday #31: Faking It

November 17th, 2008

Let’s see if I can write this without getting my tongue tied:


This PROMPTuesday, write a story about someone faking a skill to gain the attention of someone else, which only forces him/her into a situation where s/he must use this skill in order to save him/herself from a bigger threat.

The Rock said you could instead write about a superhero with a completely random and ridiculous superpower, like William H. Macy in Mystery Men (otherwise known as “The Shoveler,” who had the special ability to use a shovel with dizzying skill).


Whosever one you pick, is good by me.


Except remember: I’m pretty insecure.


Meanwhile! Catch up on the PROMPTuesdays archive here.

I love this shit!!! Let me think about it. Superpowers? That intrigues me. I have some superpowers- I can tie 20 pairs of shoes in two minutes; I can quiet a room in three claps and a snap; I can run across the room with a garbage can in 7 seconds without knocking over and 6 year olds. How’s that?

This looks like a good one, but I wasn’t able to work on it for DaGoddess today. I’ll post it tomorrow hopefully.
