Writing Prompt #1

Welcome to the start of our writing prompt series! Some of you may know that Kess posts prompts every 2 weeks on her blog; she is now sharing them with the WordFamily and cross-posting them here!

Check back here regularly for updates and new prompts. You can also join our mailing list to have the prompts delivered to your email once a month! (Drop your email into the box below to sign up.)

In the meantime, here’s our first prompt to get you started:


You have always been able to open any door, no matter how large, or stiff, or locked it might be. At the touch of your hand, every door simply opens. You are a human key.

You’re just about to start your first real, paying job when a childhood friend gets in touch. They’re in trouble and they need your help to get through a very particular door.
