These prompts are grounded very thoroughly in reality. No magic, no science fiction, no fantasy creatures or worlds should be in submissions for these prompts. Stories can be modern or historical, maybe even slightly futuristic, but they must be based on reality and on earth as we know (or knew) it to be.
This Week’s Prompt
It’s 3 am. You receive a text message that makes you get up and leave immediately. Write about what it said and where you are going and what you’re going to do.
