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] thepromptmag.com.
I’m sure you don’t need us to tell you—physical exercise is really important. You’ve heard that message loud and clear since your elementary school P.E. teacher had you playing dodgeball and doing the shuttle run. And during this long-ass quarantine, it’s hard to overstate the importance of getting active. It’s good for both your mind AND your body.
But you know what isn’t good for your mind or body? The sound of your neighbor going ape shit on that Peloton every damn day. Droning on and on about how “obsessed” they are with their new Peloton. The incessant noise of the pedaling and the electronic music and the pedal-by-pedal commands. NOT GREAT, I’LL TELL YA.
So, in empathy for some of our plight, I hope you’ll join us in writing for this week’s new 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 MY NEIGHBOR GOT A PELOTON. It can be a personal essay, a poem, short story, script, or anything else original and fresh. 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 email@example.com by Friday, June 12th at midnight EDT.
