Today’s writing prompt comes with a maximum word count of 500. There is no word list, but the protagonist of your story must have a strong phobia. You can’t pick something obvious like fear of spiders or heights. Pick something unusual like fear of the number 13 or fear of bald men. One of the unusual ones that isn’t what most people would expect for a powerful fear. To increase the difficulty, you must involve no less than three active and speaking characters.
If you want to really make me happy, you will post your stories in the comment section of the prompt. To date, I haven’t seen the product of any writing prompt from a reader. I would sincerely like to see what interesting stories come of the prompts.
