For the last week of January the prompt is to write a character that you absolutely hate. It's easy for a writer to write the same character over and over. This is a little challenge to take you out of your element. Think about people you hate being around, what irks you the most about them? This character can make decisions that you totally disagree with and feel free to kill them off. Good luck creating someone you despise!

Admit it, you already know your game plan for the end of the world. You've already thought about it. For this week's prompt let's imagine the beginning of the end: the apocalypse.
How do you picture it? Write about what you would do those first few days.
Do you find shelter? Do you try to find your friends and family? Do you get
eaten by a zombie? Are there zombies? It's up to you.
Can't wait to read your apocalypse plan!
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was an inspiring movie to watch. Walter
Mitty, played by Ben Stiller, is a man who works at Life Magazine but
dreams of a life full of adventure. When he loses a picture that the
photographer specifically said should be the cover image for the last issue of
Life, he decides that he needs to find the photographer but has almost no idea
where to start looking. Finally he takes a leap of faith and with only the
clothes on his back and his brief case he flies to Greenland and everything
after that is an adventure.
For our third prompt take someone who is completely
ordinary and have them experience something extraordinary. Just
like in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, your character must travel to a far off
place on a whim. Choose somewhere maybe you have always wanted to go, or maybe
some place that you never want to go to. Give them something they need to
accomplish by going to this place.
Please post a link to your story in the comment section

Welcome back! For our second prompt this year write an alternate ending to
your favorite book or movie. Kill off a major character or change something that tremendously affects the plot. How do the characters react? Try mimicking the authors original writing style.

book or movie that you wrote it for. If it's an unpopular story, tell us about
