Try This Weird Writing Prompt

Okay, here’s something I wrote. Does it resonate with you? What does it make you think of? Well, stop thinking, and go write about it!

Bloody Ankles

I used to jog next to a river full of crocodiles that snapped at my legs as I passed by.

Now I run on a different path.

      Hey Dr. B! Thanks for adding your humorous contribution here. Your comment reminds me that I want to hop over to your blog and see what’s happening in your world these days — haven’t been over there in a while…

      All best to you, Sandy

    I’ve never seen crocs do anything except look vaguely menacing. They always seemed all potential energy for evil to me.

      Potential energy for evil…what a great topic to write about!

      By the way, would you believe I actually knew someone in elementary school who was later eaten by a crocodile? Or an alligator — I don’t know the difference. I’m not making this story up.
