The Purpose

This prompt has one purpose and one purpose only: it’s going to inspire you to write something that’s a little creepy and full of tension. It’s great to have scenes such as the one this prompt will inspire in your locker. Tension is never to be frowned upon. It exists in every book. The genre dictates how, when, and why.

In this prompt, think horror.


The Prompt

Two streets. One lit by streetlights; the other in complete black. You can only choose one.
