Write with Chris and Millie (Week 18)

Every week my writer friend Millie and I alternate providing each other with writing prompts. We then allow ourselves one week to come up with a short story based on that prompt. This has been a fun exercise in both practising writing and devising plot hooks. You can see many of my stories on this site if you search for the Short Story tag.

We share the weekly prompts here and on Twitter – search the hashtag  #writewithchrisandmillie – so that anyone else who is in the mood for a writing exercise can join in too.

This week’s prompt is:

Good luck!
