Writing Challenge: Whom Do You Choose?
* * *
A while back, during one of the tags I did, I sent a special question to all the bloggers I tagged. Since then, I have decided to use it as a writng prompt to anyone who is interested. The goal will be to write a short story anywhere from 500 words to 2000 (or more, if you feel like it!) to answer the question within the following prompt:
* * *
You are walking along, minding your own business, when suddenly you are magically transported into a fantastical world. There, you are lost in a forest and pursued by mysterious dark creatures. Just as you are about to be caught, a white-haired elf comes to your rescue, fighting the beasts off. When he has disposed of them, he tells you that he has been searching for you and urges you to come with him to safety. Before you can answer, another man appears, this one in black ominous robes. His face is horribly scarred, and his eyes glint red. He tells you that the elf is not what he seems, and is trying to kill you. The scarred man says that he has been sent to find you, and demands that you come with him before it is too late. The elf and the scarred man look as though they are going to fight over you. Who do you trust? The elf, or the scarred man? Or do you take a third option?
* * *
This prompt is open to anyone who would like to try it. It doesn't matter if you are an experience writer, or just a curious reader wanting to explore the question.
If you decide to do the prompt, post it on your blog and link back to me. I will be posting my own version of the story soon, and I look forward to hearing your versions!
