Writing prompts and chocolate chips

Hey folks! You’ve got just over a month until submissions for our third issue, Under the Bed, are due in. That’s right, thirty three days and counting. Simon says you better start writing. But in case you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, we’ll be posting a series of writing prompts here over the next few weeks. Here’s number one.

Write a prose piece (as long or as short as you like) beginning or ending with the following words:

“On entering the room, all he saw was a trail of crumbs leading towards the bed.

‘Sarah?’ he called tentatively? ‘Sarah?’”

Don’t forget to send your creations to submissions@faroffplaces.org! We’re looking forward to reading them…
