Write Over the Hump

Here’s an imaginative situation for you to play with. Don’t overthink it; don’t worry if you don’t write this genre. Just set your timer for 10 minutes, begin writing, and see what happens.

Situation: You purchase a new cleaning product at the store, one you’ve never seen before. When you get home and spray it on your dirty countertop, the countertop vanishes. Why? What happens when it disappears? What do you do about it?
