To get everyone in a fiction frame of mind, we’ll be offering periodic writing prompts. Jot your drabbles in your favorite spiral notebook, leave your stories in the comments, or even email mail them to one of the editors if you’d like us to consider publishing them under your byline.
Who Lives Here?
Below, you’ll find several pictures of rooms. (Thank you, Sims 2!) Pick one or more picture(s) and create the person or people you think live in those rooms. Where do they live? How do they spend their days? What’s important to them? What holds them back? What motivates them? What do they love more than anything in the world? Don’t shy away from details, give the character or characters you create a realistic (or fantastic), interesting back story.
