Office Supplies (Prompt)

Her laugh rustled like shuffled papers

Andy bent his paperclip into a heart and passed it to 80 year old Teressa.

My grandmother was more a stapler than a matriarch; she forced individuals to stay together with a metal will and a fair amount of pressure.

Today I want you to write using office supplies (like the examples above but better) to make comparisons, write a poem, or punch up a story.


  1. OMG I LOVE this prompt since office supplies are my hobby, haha. The stapler one is genius! I'm actually going to try to write some to put in my novel. Thank you so much, Jennifer!
