For those of us here in New York, the last seven days have been one long, claustrophobic weekend as we’ve been trapped in our neighborhoods and homes waiting for power and subway service to be restored. In fact, just thinking about it is giving me ideas for a horror story (plus an itchy desire to rip off my skin and run screaming through the streets).
For the rest of you, though, maybe you’d like a little writing prompt to help with a weekend project. Look no further!
- Plot element: an outbreak occurs
- Setting: orbiting an unknown planet
- Character: a one-armed lion tamer
- Wild card: a robot sidekick
- Mood: gritty
Oh, yeah. That’s a keeper. Have at it!
