Writing Spark #56

The writing sparks are back! Here is a prompt to get your writing started today. Hope you have fun with it!

There has been a skull in your family home since you can remember, sitting on a shelf. You suspect it has been there generations. There were stories about it when you were a child, but that was some time ago now. 

One night, you hear a voice coming from the room where the skull’s shelf is. You go in, but there’s no-one in there. Just the skull, sitting on its shelf, watching as always.

Write the story of a character missing one of their senses.

“If I stare at you hard enough, will you spontaneously combust?”

Haven’t we all wished that at some point? What would happen if it was actually possible? So many options, go write them!

Here’s an idea to get you started:

The difference between an angel or a demon is mostly a matter of perspective.

Perspective is so much fun to play with. Explore all sides of it! Have fun. And work out just how different – or not – they are when it all comes down.
