  1. Write about something you had but was stolen. 
  2. There’s a thunderous knock at the door. You open it to find an improbably tall, black-robed figure towering over you with a scythe in one bony hand. The figure peers at you for a long moment, then looks down at a clipboard in its other hand. Then back at you. Then back at the paper. It has no apparent face, but you sense that it is puzzled. 
  3. I open the last book on earth. 
  4. Write about an argument at Sunday dinner. 
  5. You discover that your partner is a robot. 
  6. Write a scene or story that includes a character wearing a disguise or costume. 
  7. Write a scene or story that includes a monster or another character from a horror movie. 
  8. Add an original scene to the last movie you watched. 
  9. Complete the following sentence and write a scene or story that begins with it: “It’s strange to think that I never would have known about ____________ if I hadn’t taken that left turn.”
