No. 12: Prompt

Hello, hello and welcome to week 12.

Yesterday, scrolling through my Vimeo feed (yes, that’s a thing) I came across this short film.

At the end of it, I thought, now that is a perfect piece of very short fiction. It revealed the characters without explanation. It had a rather traditional structure with a slightly surreal narrative. And the conclusion brings the entire piece together.

Considering the film led me to this week’s story prompt. What I would like you to do is to watch the film and write a story adaptation (the reverse of a film adaptation). Yes, this means less creative freedom it terms of story creation but such restrictions will give you a chance to really focus on the writing.

Like always, stories are due on Thursday by 8 pm EST to mercurialstories@gmail.com.
This week’s playlist will be up tomorrow so please check in for your aural pleasure.
