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
Write a short story about miscommunication between two people (coworkers, significant others, friends, strangers) that lead to hilarious and unexpected results (no angst).
