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
A bakery burns down. A rival bakery lets the owner of the burned bakery borrow their kitchen so they can stay in business. Shenanigans ensue.
