A Fiction Writing Prompt to stretch the literary muscles. No rules. No word counts. Simply write and explore.
It should be right where I left it on the cabinet, but it’s gone
Writing Prompt Expanded
This fiction writing prompt is all about exploring… well, exploring. Or more accurately, exploring a situation that begins with nothing and expands. You start with something missing, an empty space that, you believe should have something. From this start, the direction of what you write is completely up to you.
- What should be there?
- Where has it gone?
This could be a case of forgetfulness or something more sinister. Did you really put it there? Is your mind playing tricks, or not working as it should be? Has someone, or something moved it for whatever reason, or taken it? Could it be that you are remembering something that had been placed there many years ago, which is now long gone?
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, please share it or a link, in the comments or tag me. I’d love to read what you create. Write and enjoy the learning process.
