The latest writing prompt created a lot of post-apocalyptic story starts, including mine. Maybe the next challenge is to take it in the completely opposite direction.
This prompt is from a great book titled “The Pocket Muse 2: Endless Inspiration for Writers” by Monica Wood. I own the first one, too, and they are absolutely fantastic. Besides words, she includes interesting photographs to work from. In addition, the books are small, so you can take them anywhere and they are gorgeous. A book to inspire creativity must be pretty, right? Also, they make wonderful gifts for writing friends.
“Write about a library that runs out of books, a school that runs out of children, a circus that runs out of animals. What on earth happened?”
