Did you ever, as a child, say a word so often that it lost its meaning? (“Basin”, anyone?)
Today I want you to stare at a news headline until it loses its original meaning and lets you play with it.
Take A News Headline And Change A Word Or Two, Sparking A Fictional Story.
For some reason, to me, this headline suggested some kind of epic fantasy with heroic quests, tasks the hero have been assigned.
Maybe Narcan’s a dragon. Or a three-headed monster?
Now this one definitely lends itself to an epic battle/Game of Thrones feel, don’t you think?
Maybe it’s not coffee, and maybe it’s not Earth, but this could be a really interesting spark for a story…
Are you getting the idea yet? Imagine what you could do with that one!

Hi – here’s my offering. Wonderful prompt again. https://thethingsiyell.wordpress.com/2016/03/25/woman-arrested-for-failing-to-return-vhs/
I loved this story. I especially liked the last line. I had a sneaking suspicion there was more in her past than a simple un-returned VHS tape. I love stories that leave me thinking after I’m finished reading them!
