Sunday Writing Prompt - What Mask Do You Wear?

Happy Easter dear friends!

Here is today's writing prompt:

I have always been intrigued by the masks people wear.  Sometimes, you can tell if someone is wearing one. There are times that you're taken completely by surprise of what lies behind it. 

What kind of mask do you put on? Do you wear it everyday? What happens if a chink on its surface threatens to reveal the real you? Would you be able to peel it off? Do you want to?

These prompts are yours to draw inspiration from. If you use it, and decide to post the resulting piece on your blog, or other online forum that hosts your writing, let me know in the comments section.  I'll be sure to drop by and share my thoughts on how you used it.


  1. Hi, Mieke! This is late (I'm still abroad) but I wanted to stop by and wish you a happy Easter :)

    I'm not a fan of wearing masks, but my characters certainly wear them. I enjoy the process of peeling them off as the story develops. :)

  2. Hi Sam! Happy Easter to you too! Thank you for dropping by even while you're on vacation!


Thank you so much for your kind comments.
