My week has been (mostly) spent editing a book for a client of a client—I’ll have my second consultation with the author today, to iron out some things.
Yesterday, I discovered (another!) charge on my bank statement I didn’t recognize…can’t remember if I let you guys know about the first one, two or so months ago.
Anyway, I may go into detail later—for now, I’ll be getting a new card, and that’s that.
For this prompt for Fab Fiction Friday, I was inspired by my cousin, a little bit. He’s moving his family to a different house while he sells the previous one—and I helped move some of the previous owner’s things.
All right, here’s the prompt for today:
After the family move, you discover something is missing. And not only that, it was of great importance to you, not only because of its value, but because it reveals something about you no one—not even your mother, spouse, or children—knows about you.
What is it?
A bit of a take-off on the old granny letter from before, but oh well.
We’ve got intrigue here, a problem, and limitless possibilities (and that’s just with blackmail, aliens, robots, blackmailing robots). Although “blackmailing robots” can go BOTH ways.
And sure, we can also have plots and ideas that have regular elements, lived out by regular people. There’s room for that.
July is almost over—next Friday (and the next installment of Triple-F) will be August 1st.
Make good plans for the future.
And make it an awesome weekend too, all right?
Until next time,
