Writing Prompt: The Story Starter: It’s a Dream Come True

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

This week’s prompt is a story starter, so take the element provided and turn it into a story of any length you choose. If you’re stuck on size, I suggest aiming for 1000-2000 words.

We focus on the bad so much (conflict, Dark Moments, disasters), so this week, let’s write a scene or short story that focuses on the good. Not only is it a nice change of pace, but it’s good practice for the after-climax wrap ups and happy endings.

Show the moment when the protagonist achieves their dream.

Write whatever this triggers, and use these details however you wish. Put them together, use them separately, make one a detail in a scene, whatever inspires you—run with it.
