July's prompt, The Less Appropriate Time
, had one entry:
Congratulations to deinktvis
for winning the 100 points for the prompt.
August was an awfully busy month for me, so I independently decided that prompts could take a break. But now we're back in full strength, so...
Let's move on to the new prompt!
A tiny little bit of inspiration...
We spend so much time of our lives around a dinner table, so many things happen to us when there's food involved, and so many situations or events are set off by the simple fact that we're sharing a meal... but what if your story was set off by food itself? If the thing that makes all happen is as trivial, or as important, as food?
The PromptWrite a piece of (flash to short) fiction about an incident involving food. But make it something interesting - the food is only a catalyst that sets off a bigger problem for the characters!
"catalyst noun \ˈka-tə-ləst\
: a substance that causes a chemical reaction to happen more quickly
: a person or event that quickly causes change or action"
So, simply put, write a story in which the plot is originated from an incident involving food.
Wordcount is 15 to 25 lines for poetry, 100 to 1500 words for prose!And if you want some harder challenges...
make it a comedy. A good one. The incident does not deal with a food allergy or need to use the heimlich manouever.
