Gotham Writers Write-In — 10/1/21

Lucy and Ethel always causing trouble

Note: I was having a lot of fun writing several different stories with Lucy and Ethel and other famous female characters as action heroes, and this write-in prompt was a well-timed addition to that group of stories. The story below is unfinished.

“We’ve been out here for 4 days. The nights are getting colder by about 1 degree per night,” June said.




Every Friday, Gotham Writers hosts virtual sessions for writers to join. People from around the world are given a prompt and 15 minutes to write. We share our stories and listen to others while we provide a supportive environment. This is a collection of some of those stories.
