This round's writing prompt is:
When he heard the voice on the other end of the line, he knew he shouldn't have answered the phone.
Think of this as the opening line of a novel. Your job is to write the next 100 words as if they're the opening paragraph. It's not a short story, it's the next 100 words. And the prompt sentence never counts toward your word count.
After you've written your 100 words, please e-mail them to me either by clicking here or e-mailing me directly at: Stephanie(at)StephanieMorrillBooks.com. (No attachments, please!) Make sure to include your full name and e-mail address. Send me your prompt by Monday, March 21st at 11:59 pm Kansas City time.
And I always send confirmations when I receive your entry.If you don't receive one within 24 hours or so, please check back with me.
This contest is for those ages 25 and under. One entry per person, please. For a longer explanation, prize information, and a list of answered questions, click here.
