A random writing prompt.
Most of the signs are normal enough. “No trespassing.” “Trespassers will be prosecuted.” “Private property.”
There’s even some of the weirder ones. “If you can read this, you’re in range.” Or “I can make it to the fence is 1.7 seconds.”
And so on.
But one sign in particular catches your eye. “Guard ____ on duty.”
Here, then, is the prompt: guard what on duty? What is guarding this place? Is it a dog, or something else entirely? What is so unusual about it?
And what, exactly, is it guarding?
I’ve got a specific story in mind for this one, so I’ll link to that and/or upload it here once it’s written.
Meanwhile, anyone else want to give it a try? 😉
And since WordPress/Zemanta’s “related posts” focus on the trespassing and have nought to do with writing prompts (naturally, given the post’s content), I’ll leave this little gem for anyone who’s interested:
