Bonus Prompt: The Writer

Photo by Lucie Liz on

Don’t be afraid to use this prompt day after day. For as long as you wish.

Our writer today is: Brian Lumley.

Chose any story, or any novel.

Find a place where you have questions.

Perhaps you wonder what this character did before the story begins.

Perhaps you wonder what that character did during the story that was never revealed.

Or perhaps you wonder what the other character did years after the story ended, or perhaps sooner than that.

Now, write the tale as it comes to you.

Let me give you a few examples from a single tale:

Why did Richard join the British Military Police?

What would I have to do to find and get a dog like that?

If someone dreams a thing, must they do that thing? What if they did the opposite instead? What if Richard didn’t marry Terri?
