A boy and his father awaken early to watch the sunrise from their mountain campsite, but they begin to panic when the sky remains dark long into the afternoon.

    This weeks prompt was both good and bad. Good because I had loads of ideas to explore, all of which were fun and exciting for me. Bad because I couldn’t pick one without wanting to meld in other ideas. In the end I opted to walk away from everything I came up with and discovery write the story from beginning to end.

    I thought this prompt had a Sci-Fi or fantasy feel to it, so I was worried when I first started as I don’t read or write any. But as I got going, I got an idea that would fit in with my style. Hope you like it.

    I took a looser interpretation of the prompt and had the day grow dark as opposed to already being dark as the prompt suggested. I’m thinking this week’s story may be the beginning of a new bi-weekly serial for young adults. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks for reading and enjoy.

    Had a go this week, but will say that it is far from my best effort. I did come up with an idea that I want to explore in another piece of writing, so something good has come out of this little effort. Read and enjoy.

    This was so much fun. I had to do a little research with this but remember, it is fiction based on some truth. Or is it?

    just something done for the sake of doing!:o

    I took a looser approach to the timing… and again a bit of sci-fi from me. All comments appreciated.

    Okay, so I know it’s Monday, but can’t help sharing my attempt:
