I for Impulse


Prompt – On a foreign holiday, your character meets an extremely attractive man or woman.  They don’t speak the same language, but they somehow find a way to understand each other, and your character feels a powerful connection that s/he has never felt with anyone before.  Impulsively, your character marries this person after they’ve only known each other a very short time.  Your character’s new husband/wife moves to your character’s country and begins to take language classes there.  The better the spouse is able to communicate, the more your character realizes that s/he isn’t the person your character had believed…

Are John and Anya really too incompatible to live together? Is love really such a fickle friend? When you love someone truly, is it really easy to let go? Or it is difficult to be together?

Prompt – This year, your character resolves to save money.  So, he is intrigued when he sees an online ad offering a free bedroom in a shared apartment.  The apartment’s owner explains that s/he is lonely and just wants company.  It sounds quite strange, but it could save your character a fortune in rent…

G for Gift


Prompt – This year, your character resolves to get organized.  While she is sorting through papers in her house, she discovers an expensive insurance policy that her husband has taken out on her life.  Why has he done that?  And why didn’t he tell her about it?  And why does he have a second cell phone hidden in the back of his desk drawer?

When your spouse hides something from you, it is a major cause of panic. But when the hidden thing is as huge as an insurance in your name, then it is grounds for downright fear for your life. What is it that Rebecca’s husband is hiding from her? What will she find out when she confronts John about it?

F for Fate


Prompt – Every evening, when she goes to the parking garage of her office building, your character finds a new love note tucked under the windshield wipers of her car.  These love notes are very beautiful and fill your character with powerful emotions.  But they are all addressed to “Caroline”.  Your character’s name is Melissa…

Everyone likes when someone appreciates them. That is human quality and we cannot hide from it. But what if someone appreciates you but names someone else? You know your qualities are being appreciated but why is someone else’s name being taken to address you? Are those appreciations really for you? Or is it a case of mistaken identity? What would you do? What did Melissa do?

Rebecca and Melissa are best of friends since childhood. Melissa has a secret which only Rebecca knows. But her temptation to make her protagonist in her book like Melissa overcame the bond of friendship and the secret keeping of her friend. How will Rebecca resolve this crisis? Will they break their friendship of so many years?
