“Prompts for the Promptless” was created to expand minds, share ideas, and — equally importantly — find something about which to blog.
Every episode will run for a week and feature a “concept”, complete with a super-simplified definition and suggested prompts.
Then it’s your turn– use a prompt, create your own, write a poem, post a picture, tell a story, or do whatever you feel inspired to do.
- Everyone is welcome to be Prompted.
- Tag your posts with “ForThePromptless” so others can find you.
- Link back to this post so I can find you. If you do that, and give me a day, you’ll find your link in this post and my sidebar. And anywhere else I can put it to promote your involvement!
- You may participate as many times as you’d like.

The 11th Possibility is the idea that, regardless of data to the contrary, something unexpected and outside the realm of ordinary thought is always potentially around the corner.
“A coin is flipped 10 times, and in each instance lands on either heads or tails. But even after the normalcy displayed by the first 10 flips, the result of the next flip is still unknown. The coin could turn into a bird and fly away. The coin could land perfectly on its ridged edge. The coin could dissolve upon landing. It could defy gravity and remain stuck in the air. This is the 11th Possibility.”
- Share a picture of something that represents The 11th Possibility to you
- You walk into a dark room and flip the light switch on. Normalcy says that the light turns on. What are some possible 11th Possibilities?
- Consider, develop, or discuss the 11th Possibility in literature or film
- Write a poem about an ordinary scenario turning into something outside the realm of ordinary thought
- Share a story about the reaction that would occur if the 11th Possibility presented itself
- … or make up your own prompt related to the theme!
Tune in every Tuesday night (11:30 pm PST) for another episode.
