As I write this I’m trying to eat a grilled cheese sandwich. As hard as you think it might be to eat and type at the same time, hot, dripping cheese makes it harder. Anyway, it’s time for your story challenge. You’ve all done this one before: I’m going to give you a theme prompt, but I want you to write this story in a genre that you don’t normally write in. If you usually write fantasy, then make this story a modern day romance. If you usually write romance, make this story a thriller. The key here is to get out of your comfort zone as a writer. Do something new.
