How’s your week been? I hope it’s been really awesome for you–we’ve got a little bit left, though.
Let’s get to it.
Today’s Friday, which means Triple F, and a fiction prompt. If you’ve been here before, great. If not, get strapped in.
Here in the Midwest, it’s cold today–or at least 50ish feels cold, because it was close to 90 yesterday. And Wednesday’s dust storm really kicked up the weirdness, for sure.
So this week’s prompt for Fabulous Fiction Friday is:
There’s a storm outside, but it’s something your character is expecting–and it ain’t rain.
I just had to put “it ain’t rain” to block out possibility of a weather report, hail, or what-have-ya. We’ve got no details on character, backstory, gender, or pretty much anything else, so you’ll have to hatch those on your own (or yerself).
What if Katie is expecting a shipment, but it’s being covered by an artificial saline storm? Where is she so that this is happening, and why the secrecy? Maybe she’s expecting alien tech, or she needs to fix an ailing space station–what went wrong?
Or Matt is thinking about how it sucks to be trapped in a hazmat suit all day, because of disease and depopulation, when the wave of radiation comes to kill off the evil alien race that’s enslaved humans. Only this time, the radiation only maims them…
That’s enough to get the mental snowball a-rollin’. Each decision you or a character makes leads to a different story (and lots of different stories from these prompts).
May 2017 is about 2/3 slipped into the folded cloak of history.
Make it an awesome weekend, with good memories, all right?
Until next time (and week),
