Here’s a bit of a writing game inspired by a recent (to me) episode of Murder, She Wrote. I’m going to give you a scenario with some blanks. Fill in the blanks, and write your own story. This scenario I’m presenting to you is the sort of thing I’d love to create for friends…or strangers.
You are at a _________ and a man in a tuxedo comes to you with a large, lovely, and fancy envelope in cream stock. You are surprised and eagerly open the envelope. Inside, you find a nearly equally large cream colored stiffened paper, and in red are the words: Midnight
What are your immediate thoughts and feelings when you see this word? What do you think will happen at midnight?
Next to the word Midnight is a symbol. The symbol is a code that you understand signifying a particular place. What is the symbol? Draw it.
How do you know what it references? Where are you going, or, do you choose to ignore this invitation?
Time passes, and you arrive __________ a few minutes before midnight. Where are you? What is waiting for you when you arrive?
Was it worth it?
