Just the relief, a quickie prompt

Standard

Last night I went through the writing prompt tag on tumblr just to see what I would find. There were a bunch of awesome prompts but one list stood out to me: Bookstore AU (apollofastingdionysusdrunk.tumblr.com)
I decided to work on the prompt that made me laugh the hardest (whether it’s because I pictured writing one of the cheesiest scenes, which is honestly so much fun, or not I have it written down at the top of my blank page.
“Holy shit this assistant is hot – yes, I’m looking for a science fiction, a Gothic horror, a spy mystery, a modern dystopian, historical fiction, and – and…”
Not sure where this will lead. I already have some ideas swirling in my mind.
This won’t be the first prompt I have decided to tackle in the last few weeks. Sometimes right now all it honestly feels like I only have enough energy to work on a short blurb.
But for me it’s a relief.
My brain doesn’t feel overwhelmed and for a short time I can focus on melding myself with paper. Even if I fall asleep while working.
If you want to take a crack at it, and don’t mind sharing, feel free to either comment or post it on your own blog (but please let me know, I would love to read it)!
