It’s Time To Vote- We’re Feeling a lil’ Random This Week… #kdsuspense #amwriting #writerslife

 It’s week #3  Of Didi and I telling tales, that also means it’s time for you to vote for our next writing prompt for a short story. We’d love you all to join in when the winning prompt is announced on Sunday. Why not write your own story  then link in with us on Tuesday next week?  Use the hashtag #kdsuspense so we can find it :). I think it’s fair to say for both of us, after stepping back in time to an era when neither of us were born, to portray a  notorious feisty Italian – American, lesbian serial killer, from Brooklyn New York (crime fiction). Then moving back to the present day, to portray a white male in his forties, with an extreme case of OCD , schizophrenia and a broken heart vs obsession with another woman (suspense), this week I feel personally  whatever the weather I’ll go with it, this is fun whatever prompt you vote for!

It’s  my turn to research some prompts I have no clue what theme to zone in on.  I looked up the most random prompts I could find, then  showed them to Didi so we could get a list together for you to vote from. She was like “hmm, ohh… yeah I like that, and that, but ya know what  Kim I’ll write them all any character any age,race,gender whatever.” So it looks like we’re both  feeling a lil’ random and whatever the weather this week. So here we go it’s over to you. We have  no theme, no focus just random madness plucked out from generators. The generator threw up all these prompts randomly below, I took the first ones and never looked back. What shall we write?  You decide… more details on the challenge below, and last week’s stories if you’re new to this weekly challenge.
