Writing Prompt from Old Emails

Creative Writing Prompt | Flash Fiction | Short Story | Set the Scene | Writing | RachelPoli.com

I love writing prompts.  They help kickstart my muse (sometimes).   I sure would like to see my books in a library (sigh).  Maybe some day.


In The Library

I was perusing my favorite genre one day, poring over the titles, looking at the covers.  Maybe I would discover a new author.  Hmmm.  I had already read several books by John Grisham, James Scott Bell, Iris Johansen, and Mary Higgins Clark.

Oh, there’s an author I haven’t read before.  The cover had a lot of blue in it (my favorite color) and it had an intriguing title:  “Silent Night.”  Okay, I know this is summer; but maybe it will get me to thinking about what to get for gifts this Christmas ahead of time, not waiting until the last minute.  I love mystery/suspense/thriller but, as a Christian, I don’t want to read intimate love scenes, God’s name in vain, or vulgarity.  For me, those things detract from the story.  They are unnecessary.  I read the blurb on the back.  Yes, I am definitely going to read this book.

Maybe next year it will be my book on the library shelf.  It could happen.
