This writing prompt is courtesy of Carol J Forrester’s new September Speculative Fiction Prompt. This is not a new prompt, I understand we have D Wallace Peach to thank for its creation and that Carol has picked up the baton. If this month’s image is anything to go by it looks like it’s in safe hands.
Yet another writing prompt. I’m always looking for new ones, god forbid I have to rely on my own gumption for impetus. This one is courtesy of Sonya’s Three Line Tales, you get the idea. This week’s prompt is the photo below. Why not pop over and check out some of the other great stories, or maybe even have a go yourself.
This is a short story (<1000 words) for a competition organised by Michele Sagan and Robert D. McAdams. I’ve gone with sci-fi, which seems to be my flavour of the week. This is my first attempt at injecting some humour into a story. I wouldn’t call it a knee-slapper but hopefully it at least entertains.
