Promptly Creative: Bore Me

This month’s writing prompt is a quick exploration into a skill most of us try to avoid, but when the right words won’t come, sometimes the wrong ones need their moment in the sun. Let it be silly, rambling, or disconnected. Just how blandly can you write?

Imagine you’re responsible for getting someone else to fall asleep. Nothing but your words will transport this person into dreamland. What do you say? Keep it going for a solid 5-10 minutes.

Consider whether your charge is:
A. excited,
B. nervous,
C. frightened, or
D. belligerent.

Can you soothe them? No? Attempt to bore them into slumber.

And just for funsies, try writing the absolutely worst thing you could say to try to help.
