Let’s see if I can write this without getting my tongue tied:
This PROMPTuesday, write a story about someone faking a skill to gain the attention of someone else, which only forces him/her into a situation where s/he must use this skill in order to save him/herself from a bigger threat. Include: a cast-iron lamp and two nuns giggling in the corner.
The Rock said you could instead write about a superhero with a completely random and ridiculous superpower, like William H. Macy in Mystery Men (otherwise known as “The Shoveler,” who had the special ability to use a shovel with dizzying skill).
Whosever one you pick, is good by me.
Except remember: I’m pretty insecure.
Meanwhile! Catch up on the PROMPTuesdays archive here.
