Your Daily Writing Prompt for October 16, 2019

We’ll try to put up a writing prompt every day. Use it however you see fit; my personal method is to set a timer for 15 or 20 minutes and write in response to the prompt. The prompt might be or become the first line of a story, or a premise, or a line of dialogue, or a question. There’s no need to quote / restate it, take it literally, or even use it. Maybe it’ll make you think of something else. Share what you wrote in the comments, on your own blog, write a bestselling novel with it, or just keep it for yourself. It’s all up to you!

(Imagine a drumroll) Today’s writing prompt is…

You can’t believe it, she’s getting married! Your level of excitement in meeting her fiancé is palpable as you pull into her driveway. You honk and she comes out. As soon as you see her fiancé, your jaw drops…

(Remember, the “you” can also be a character you’re writing about: This could be a good opportunity to get inside their head)
