Welcome back, everyone! Can you believe it’s already Microcosms 7? I sure can’t…
I thought we’d divert from time this week and talk about love. February is the month of romance, after all, is it not? My sister is getting married on Saturday; Sunday is Valentines Day; and this is National Weddings Month.
February also happens to be National Heart Month – which can be taken a few different ways. So while most of our prompts will be wedding-related, there are a few wildcards in there, as well. 😉
As usual, our contest will begin with three things: character, setting, and genre.
We spun, and our three elements are character: serial killer, setting: wedding, and genre: comedy. Okay… Let’s see what you do with that. lol
Feel free to write a story using those or spin a new set of your own. Be sure to include which three elements you’re using.
- limo driver
- maid of honor
- best man
- flower girl
- organ donor
- serial killer
- blind date
- house of worship
- Niagara Falls
- coffee shop
- flower shop
- the moon
- crime scene
- deserted highway
- haunted house
- steam punk
