Each week, we issue a writing prompt to our own staff, guest contributors, and readers like you. We welcome guest submissions, so if you’re interested in being featured or regularly contributing to the site, email your responses to kelaine.conochan [at]

This week, we’re trying to keep it clean. Spotless, even. We want the place so sparkling we can even see our reflection in it.

We know writing can sometimes feel like a chore, but honestly, you always feel better when it’s done. When you’ve had a chance to bend at the knees and wring out your thoughts, ideas, and feelings.

This week, we’re inviting you to do just that with our latest prompt.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: MOPPING THE FLOOR

This week, we’re looking for new original pieces, using MOPPING THE FLOOR as our prompt.

If you’ve got an inspired ideas about how to respond to this week’s prompt, send us your submission of 400-700 words. Write us anything that comes to mind when you think of MOPPING THE FLOOR. It can be a personal essay, a poem, short story, script, or anything else original and fresh. Ironic or sincere, real or imagined—just make it worth our while and we’ll publish it, include it in our newsletter, and give you the chance to join the creative, talented staff writers here at The Prompt.

Email your responses to by Sunday June 26th at midnight EST
