Fiction Prompt

Welcome to the month of December, PW writers and readers! Things are going to be a bit different around here this month. Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sun will all be fiction! Tues, Thurs, and Sat will all be poetry! There will be a Weekly Special posted every Monday, but there will not be a Weekend Challenge this month. What is going to make December fun is that you may use fiction prompts to write poetry and poetry prompts to write fiction! Or, use the prompts as is. Let’s get on with the prompting, shall we?

Today’s Fiction prompt

You’ve just received an alert on your cellphone. There is a 2-hr sale on something you’ve desperately wanted. Write a story.

You may write a poem of any form and length based on the theme of a sale.

Word Length — Any (as short or long as necessary to tell your story)
Restriction — Will you get there on time?

‘Restrictions’ are to challenge you as a writer. However, with everything else here at PW, use these prompts in any way that allows the creative juices to flow.

Write promptly and enjoy! And don’t forget about the Monthly Theme!
