Monday Writing Prompt: Vending Machine


Happy Monday everyone. Is your weekday start as rough as mine?  I’m a roller-coaster of emotions today: been angry over ignorant comments about the Miss America pageant, cried over a flash-mob proposal, and am excited about new and upcoming projects.

What has your Monday morning like?

Well, let’s get on with it, shall we? Today I’ve got quite the imaginative prompt for you:

You run across a vending machine that hands out wishes. What happens next?

Don’t forget to include the quirky details! How much does each cost? Is there a personal genie that comes out? Are there different kinds of wishes that you can buy — like different cans of soda? Are there repercussions?

I’m excited to work on this one and read what you come up with! If you would like to share your stories, feel free to post it on your site and link us to your post in the comments section below or (if it’s really short) post your story right in the comment. If you’d like a personal critique of it, feel free to send it to our e-mail: Include the words “Critique Me Please: [INSERT STORY TITLE HERE]” in the subject.

Love, Joy
