1. Use the prompt in the way it’s intended (starting a sentence, the title of the piece, theme, etc)
2. You may write in any format you see fit (fiction, non-fiction, poem, song, script, etc.)
3. Post your piece of writing in the comments section of the website to be considered for the ‘Best Of’ section.
I don’t know who “they” are, but they say you can learn a lot about a person by going through his or her garbage. That’s your prompt: write a scene, poem, script, essay, collection of words either describing a character (or two or more) going through someone else’s garbage, or going through their own garbage (why?), and what can be gleaned about this character based on the refuse… or describe what’s in your garbage can and what it tells us about you…
ex: judging by the amount of vacuumed up white cat hair currently in my rubbish bin, you might think I own a snow leopard. I don’t.
