This week’s prompt by Jude.


Try a different genre. Write a story for younger children set on an island. Make it cheery and include a dog. Or write an opening to a  contemporary  YA novel  about life on an island where everything is changing, domestically and politically.  Less cheery, but a dog can still be included.
