Welcome to my weekly writing prompt series. The rules of the challenge are simple. I’ve provided two options below, and there’s a handy link-up button at the end of the post, so you can upload your contribution and share it with others. If you prefer to use the pingback method, I’ll check out each link I receive. Here is the hashtag, should you wish to use it – #MelsWritingMenagerie.
Before I get to the prompts, I’d like to share with you an entry from last week by Louise Findlay. To read the full, original post, click on the title.
“Frank, what is so urgent and why do you have a bonsai plant?” I asked.
I was his next door neighbour but we saw each other about once a week. I did happen to take up quite a few contracts that my sister passed my way though so I wasn’t home a lot. How Frank managed the whole domestic living thing I don’t know. I couldn’t survive in my house with nothing to do all day. Luckily I still retained a membership to the Contract Killers Society. Contract Killers Weekly was such a great magazine. I could brush up on my technique and it relieved boredom.
“I need some gardening tips” he said.
“Gardening tips? Since when were you a gardener? How am I supposed to know anything about plants?” I said in disbelief.
All entries are shared over at Featured Fiction.
So, on to the next set of prompts. Grab the badge and write a post based on either of the following options:
