Hi, all! I’m Monique and I’m going to be posting prompts each Friday this month.
The theme is “Friday Favourites” and means that each prompt will be a generic premise for a story that is also the description of a classic (or favourite!) novel.
A person wakes up, not quite remembering what happened the night before, and is surprised and upset by what they see outside the window.
(The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams)
Change the genre. Instead of science fiction, turn it into a mystery. Or a romance. Or a children’s story.
Where (or when) do they wake up? ‘Window’ can be interpreted broadly.
Monique Cuillerier has always loved to write. She also enjoys procrastination. These two interests are frequently in conflict. Her stories have appeared in Round Up Writer’s Zine, Black Heart Magazine, (parenthetical), and elsewhere. She blogs sporadically (although more frequently during Story A Day!) at notwhereilive.ca
