Triple F: Anything but Rubber…

Hey, how’s the week been for you?

Today is Triple F, Fabulous Fiction Friday, and a writing prompt for you (likely based on something that happened in my life this week, that I’ll try to spin into something funny or scary…or something).

So for this week, your prompt is:

Your characters drive everything on tires not made from rubber.

I needed a break and a bit of a laugh, obviously. All right, now we fiction. Almost anything in a story feeds off of everything else, which is why any one point can be the start for a story.

Let’s say in Amber’s world, rubber is scarce, and she has to drive cars with doughnuts instead of tires. They get her to where she needs to go, and that’s all we need to know…or is it? Did the sun have to be modified scientifically, magically, or otherwise to make it so that doughnut tires would be viable? (And I love doughnuts, by the way.) If Amber’s tires break, what can she do about it? Have stores like Colossal Doughnuts r’ Us sprung up to fill this need in the market? There’s a whole universe here, just based on that tiny sentence at the beginning.

Or how about Justin, who drives his truck on pop bottles turned sideways? What are they filled with to hold all that weight? (It better not be pop, let me tell you.) Do the bottles still have the caps, and if so, how does Justin make sure everything is still air-tight? Or does he just not care?

All right, that’s enough to get the mental snowball a-rollin’.

June 2017 is about 1/3 of the way gone.

Make it a great weekend, with good memories, all right?

Until next time (and week),
