O Might F-List...  
So, a miracle happened, and I'm heading into the LJ Idol finale. It's a three-way write-off, with a story due late Monday.

And it is the dreaded Open Topic prompt. Ulp!

Since you are all smart and interesting people, I thought I'd see what kind of ideas or prompts you might have for something to write?

I can't promise to use them, obviously, but they would sure help get some ideas brewing!

Thoughts? Inspiration?

Thank you!

This could make for an interesting story! I'm saving the idea for later. :)

Thank you!

I'm glad you liked the story!

My goal was for most people not to figure it out until the end (if at all), but that those who realized what was happening it earlier also wouldn't feel as if it was incredibly obvious. The clues are key!

Hahahaha!

I didn't use this, but I'm definitely saving this one for later. :D

Thanks, Ryl!

Congrats and good luck!!

I always like a time travel prompt! Changing the future, changing the past, either accidentally or purposefully...

Thank you!

Oh, I love time travel. I've written about traveling in space before, but not time, I don't think.

This idea is firmly in the wheelhouse of one of the other finalists, so I won't use it now, but thank you!

Thoughts on a tedious journey to a boring destination.

That didn't seem like something that would 'Wow' voters for a finale, but it's right up my alley as an opportunity for sarcasm and/or dry humor,

Definitely saving it for later. Thanks!

Congratulations! I'm not surprised because you wrote some great stories this season. The office drone demon will forever be one of my all time favorites :D

Sadly I don't really have any prompts but I'm looking forward to reading your entry :)

Thank you so much!

I'm happy to hear that the office drone demon was that memorable! He was fun to write. :D

Damn, wish I'd seen this earlier, I have some prompts kicking around that I would have been happy to share. Oops! GOOD LUCK! :D Congrats on making it into the Final 3 — didn't realize Idol was that close to done!

I did end up coming up with something (like, my THIRD something), so it's all good.

Thank you for the good wishes!
