Writing Prompt for the Week

by Ashely Herbert

 

Image text:

You don’t believe in ancient gods. You wanted to spend the last day of your vacation on this beautiful island on the beach, not visiting old temples, but your friend convinces you.

The guide tells you not to touch the statue of the ancient god and not to touch the offerings. You accidentally knock over the offerings and touch the statue.

Now you learn that the ancient god is not only real but has cursed you to be his medium, giving messages to the living. And the god wants the living to know that a catastrophe is coming.
