Write Over the Hump

It’s been a while since I’ve posted Write Over the Hump (10 minute writing sessions), and with the quarantine keeping everyone at home, Wednesday isn’t really the same Hump Day it was in the past. However, Wednesday is still the middle of the week, which makes it still the Hump Day. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

These prompts are here to jump-start your writing, which might be a bit difficult at this time. Hope these little nudges will help! This time, we will twist reality to see what’s hiding deep in our subconscious mind. Just start writing and see what happens; don’t try to force things, just let them flow. Ready? Here we go…

For your birthday, a friend has purchased tickets to a play you’ve been dying to see. He/she is running late, so you pick up your ticket at the box office and find your seat, front row center. Your friend still has not arrived when the lights dim and the curtain rises. But it’s not the advertised play. What is it and what happens? Tell us all about that birthday play. Your ten minutes starts now!
