While perusing a book of writing prompts in hopes of smacking a story out of my head, I was drawn to a certain page. The opposing suggestion was to write about the mortification of another. This sparked the beginnings of a story, but at this moment, it needs to fester. But while I was staring at the words and smirking at their timeliness, something familiar caught my eye. It wasn’t an object in the room where I write. It wasn’t out the window in the yard. It was on the original page where I had arrived. A black and white photo of street signs waited for me to notice. The numbers rang a tiny bell. I looked closer. And I laughed. The street signs below the numbers have seen me pass many many times on my way to a favorite grocer. I flipped the page to see what was on the back of it, and what do I find? It suggests changing a “no” to a “yes” in a story to see what happens. Well? I’ve got my prompts….I’m off to scribble.
