Write a story about a character with a debilitating obsession but don’t tell the reader what it the obsession is. The character is hiding it from herself and yet controlled by it. This obsession should be one that is not your own. Use your imagination. Write in short, choppy sentences.
These prompts are free. In return, I hope that writers and teachers who use these prompts in (and out of) the classroom will purchase one of my flash fiction or poetry collections. That will make me very happy! Links to my books are on the main menu here on my website.
