Writing Challenge/Prompt

You’ve spent the last six years trying to convince your twin girls that the monster under the bed is imaginary. No matter how hard you try, the girls insist the monster is real…and he’s lonely.

You come home from work late one night and the monster is at the kitchen table, having cookies and milk with your daughters.

Write a story about what happens next.

Remember: Challenges are supposed to be fun, but don’t forget to stretch yourself and take risks. If you normally write fantasy, try science fiction. If you’ve never tried writing in first or second person, here’s your chance. The story doesn’t have to be a masterpiece, this is all about trying new things and gaining new skills, and most of all, having fun. Challenge stories can go up on the workshop at anytime. Put “Challenge” in the title so people can find it.

Challenges can be suggested by anyone and suggestions should be sent to Jaime (news (at) onlinewritingworkshop.com).
