It is finally here! The very first Prompt Pot writing challenge.
It is week one of Newshound to Novelist’s new weekly micro fiction feature, and today I pulled from the pot a sky blue strip of paper with the word ‘curry‘ written across it.
I’m not even going to apologise that I had this tin in my cupboard in order to take this photo – mainly because it’s my husband’s.
So go ahead and pen your own micro story of 100 words or less, using the prompt ‘curry’. You can interpret it or use it in whatever way you want.
Remember to pingback to this page and include the tag ‘The Prompt Pot’ so we can find your efforts in the WordPress reader.
The best of luck to you all.
Now, without further ado, here is my curry inspired micro…

Before he left, she used to sleep better. She ate better too. She decided she would prepare porridge this morning.
