Prompt from Alex: Write some dialogue. Your character is about to get a parking ticket. Write the conversation with the parking warden. Are they going to get away with it? Or will there be an angry exchange? What’s their story?
This week’s prompt by Jude
Take some stressed characters. Seat them in a cafe. Let them order a couple of desserts. Death-by-chocolate or Eton Mess perhaps? Another person comes in and accuses the couple of a past wrong-doing. Will they just get their desserts – or will they get their just desserts?
Prompt from Alex: You are outside looking in. Why are you looking through the window? What do you see ? Who is inside and what is about to happen? Write a short story in the first person.
This week’s prompt by Jude
Definition of blue-sky thinking:
“creative ideas that are not limited by current thinking or beliefs.”
Set the timer and whoosh out a piece about a person who has a brilliant idea, when everything is up in the air. Does their idea get taken up? What happens? Put in a few clouds perhaps.
