As always these writing prompts are optional and entirely open to your own interpretation. Use them as a starting point for a short story or something a little more grandiose. If you do write something, either share it or a link, in the comments or tag me. I’d love to read what you create.
Writing Prompt Expanded

- What are their reasons for reacting the way they do?
- What are the immediate priorities?
No rules. No word counts limits. Simply explore and write.
