Fandango’s Story Starter #1

It’s high time to get you guys inspired with yet another writing prompt from yours truly, Fandango.

I’m not sure how much interest there will be in a new writing prompt, as writing prompts these days abound. But let’s give it a few weeks and see if it gains any traction, okay?

Here’s how it’s going to work. Every Tuesday morning (my time), I’m going to give you an incomplete “teaser” sentence and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a story (poetry or prose) around that partial sentence. It doesn’t have to be the first sentence in your story, and you don’t even have to use it in your post at all if you don’t want to. The purpose of the teaser is simply to spark your imagination and to get your storytelling juices flowing

This week’s teaser is:

Don’t you dare come any closer…

If you care to write and post a story built on this teaser, be sure to link back to this post and to tag your post with #FSS. I would also encourage you to read and enjoy what other bloggers do with this teaser, assuming (hoping?) that some bloggers will give it a shot.

And most of all, have fun.

    That’s for the new source of inspiration, Fandango. Will this be once a week?

      No worries, Di. Responding to this new prompt is not mandatory. If the teaser sentence motivates you, great. If not, no problem.

    This resonated with me because of what I was thinking at the end of my writing, today, for your latest “Provocative Question.”

    Let’s see about putting this in fictional terms.

    Don’t tread on me, thought Renae. Why am I even thinking those words? I feel them resolutely, though, she ruminated. She sensed an impulse to say Stay away. Her face first conveyed the devoid state of interest; conveyed is debatable when the other is impervious. Jimmy grinned like he had been the model of saying what really counted. Then he had to insist, leaning in her direction, “Hey! Hey, you. I was talking to you.” G-R-I-N…
