A Stranger Calls

The best stories can come from the smallest seed. Sometimes all it takes is a situation to create that spark and get you excited. It may be something mundane, but when asked in the context of a story, a spider’s web of ideas and directions open up.

Your writing prompt: A character comes home after an average day, to find a stranger in the kitchen. Who or what are they? Why are they there? What do they want? Are they threatening, vulnerable or just plain surreal? Write a list of possibilities, pick the best ones and start writing.
