This prompt will place your character in a maze or a labyrinth. Only you, the Mighty and Invincible Author holds the key to your character’s freedom! *Mwahahaha*
Savor your awesome powers for a moment.
Now, let’s get writing!
Your character is lost in a maze with the instructions to find a very important document or treasure hidden in its center. Or perhaps the character has lost this important thing, and must find it before the wrong person does. Added bonus points if they must battle a minotaur, dragon or fearsome magical villain. 😉
(Never fear. If your story isn’t fantasy, this prompt can still work!)
Alright, Awesome and All-Powerful Author. Its time to get writing.

Fallen pretty far behind already! Anyway, here’s Story Number 3:
Posted late (fell asleep early!) but here’s #3: http://jahangiri.us/2013/thief-of-dreams-storyaday/
I’m just a bit late, but I have finished what has become Part One of several, an ongoing story. I had not expected it to become such a complex tale. But I’m feeling good about it.
That’s an interesting tale, I’d love to know where it goes from there. Very mysterious.
I won’t lie, this one was rough. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to push my creative juices
This is a great prompt, Leslie! Here’s my needs-lots-of-work story: http://notwhereilive.ca/2015/09/03/story-a-day-september-day-3/
The answer to this prompt, which is the sequel to the first prompt: https://storiesin5minutes.wordpress.com/2015/09/03/trapped-in-the-labyrinth-storyaday-post/
Day three down! https://fynralyl.wordpress.com/2015/09/03/story-a-day-challenge-day-3-right-maze/ Company coming in today ahead of a girls long holiday weekend, so short on time, but it seemed to fit the story for today. RAFO if I get bonus points or not! Mom and sister have already been forewarned I’m bringing my notebook and laptop for the weekend, so not letting social events be my excuse to not write!
Oooh that was a cool plot twist!
But…poor dragon. :’-(
I started really slowly with this story, and I felt myself rushing because I wasn’t sure I was liking what I was writing, but I decided to forget about time constraints and focus on trying to write a good story. It went all sorts of places I didn’t imagine, but I did add in one of my signatures (which is using a letter in my stories), and I tried to have a lot of fun with what I was writing. Which I did. I don’t expect to be this ambitious every day, but it felt amazing to push through the frustration and continue to write. You can read my story here: https://storiesbystolle.wordpress.com/2015/09/03/day-3-ordained-by-ghosts. The password is 3.
A short one today:
And all of a sudden, I seem to have developed a bit of a backstory to yesterday’s prompt.
Always a good thing! For me the prompts so far are fitting together so well that I’m just continuing the story I began Tuesday. We’ll see how long it lasts… 🙂
I’m actually going to go back to Tuesday’s prompt and rewriting it to fit in the story that’s going on in my head!
I had an easier time with this prompt. It’s probably not what Leslie had in mind but I’m happy with the results.
I love your take on it! And I really want to know what happens to the minotaur now. 🙂
