The Prompt

Two Hundred And Fifteen


  • Um…
  • You could really go anywhere with this.
  • Use the number as a countdown; a hotel room number; the number of tasks someone has set themselves to complete before they die…anything.
  • Remember to give us a character through whose emotions we can feel the whole impact of the story.
