Time for a Writing Prompt

I needed a little boost so I thought I would toss out a writing prompt for you as well.

Here it is: She looked through the telescope . . .

See what you come up with and share your hooky sentence or paragraph.

Here's a quick go at it....

She looked through the telescope. With the thick forest that surrounded the house, Lacy wasn’t really sure what she expected to see except trees and brush. She was surprised, though, to be able to make out the road through the powerful scope. So this is what Dan had spent so many hours monitoring. Looking for the black car she’d fought so hard to avoid for the past two weeks. Did he really think they’d find their way here, into the middle of nowhere?

Of course anything was possible. Too many impossible things were now reality and she was afraid that it would continue on.

What scared her more, though, was the very real chance that she’d lose her memory again and she’d forget just why Dan had her and Molly hidden in this old house in the woods.

Oo. Hiding out and losing her memory. Neat!

Was this off the cuff or something you're planning on using in a story?

Both LOL. I have a story started (and sitting in a folder waiting for me to come up with more) with these characters, but this was just off the cuff yesterday. I like doing prompts that way, making them a piece of something I'm already working on.

Looking forward to more prompts! I love prompts.

That is excellent!

I don't believe I have used anything from my prompts yet, but I keep them just so they can inspire me on a future story.

I especially like the idea of trying to figure out the guy in the pink girls underwear from last week. :-)

I'll keep posting prompts as long as they keep inspiring us.

Yes, the man in the pink undies bests my guy in a lobster outfit from one of my short stories. I hope we can find out more about him.
