Five Words and a Screen: Monday Morning Writing Prompt, October 10

I've only recently begun to appreciate this kind of writing prompt. It forces me to move a little out of my writing "comfort zone," which is always a good thing. If you are especially proud of what you produce as a result of this writing prompt, then we will be too. So send it our way. Recently, one of our readers sent in her writing prompt and it is going to be published in the next issue of Mia. You never know... So here is your prompt for today: Write a 300-400 word short story in which you use the words: terminal, peso, anthropologist, polyester, exhaust, slipper. Happy Monday!


  1. The anthropologist dropped his slipper as he sat cross legged in the terminal away from the exhaust fumes fingering the peso in the pocket of his best polyester suit.

  2. Sounds like a great start to an interesting short story. Hope you carry forward with it!
