It’s a fact: most of my breakups happen in the Summer.
And I imagine it must be a common theme for other people, too: high school couples break up when they move to respective universities; Uni couples split up cause everyone’s burdened by fear of the future; holiday romances going awry. There’s numerous different possible reasons.
But whatever it is, the Summer seems to be a time where a lot of relationships just… die.
And so, to celebrate this inalienable fact, I am instigating the first ever Breakup Season flash fic drive!
Here are the rules:
- Each day will have a writing prompt for you to start from
- The prompts will feature a setting and two objects/concepts that are integral to the breakup itself.
- Maximum 300 Words
- Tag each piece with the hashtag #BreakupSeason and put it in the title.
Get it? Good!
Now, here are your prompts!
Setting: Shopping Mall Coffee House
Factors: Texting/Beauty Pageants
Setting: Inner City Park Bench
Setting: Olde Tyme Ice Cream Parlour (After Hours)
Factors: Stealing/Porn Addiction
Setting: Atop a Broken Down Ferris Wheel
Factors: Emotional Smothering/Clowns
Setting: The End Of The World
Factors: Wearing Socks To Bed/Political Allegiance
So what are you waiting for? Get started on some tales of woe and rejection so that I can feel better about always getting dumped in the sunshine!
