Feel free to share the prompt all you want, but please be kind and link back to this post as the original source. If you do write something awesome, link to it in the comments!
Your friend signs you up for a mail order mystery game (think “Mysterious Package Company”). At first you think it’s just good fun, but as you start to research the clues, you realize the “for entertainment purposes only” mystery might be tied to something bigger–something real.
If you want even more of a prompt, try to keep your story in the spirit of magical realism with just enough magic to make the reader wonder, but not enough to be full fantasy (or horror).
What are you writing this weekend?
