This round's prompt is, No one wanted to be here.
Here's a reminder about how writing prompts work, since it feels like forever since we last did one:
Your job is to write the next 100 words as if this was the opening of a novel. This means your total entry will be 106 words or less (prompt sentence+your words).Your 100 words are due by 11:59pm Kansas City time (also known as central time) on June 27th. You can email them to me at Stephanie(at)GoTeenWriters(dot)com, or by clicking here.One entry per person per round. This contest is for writers ages 25 and under.
