Hey, everyone! Since many of us are writers here, I thought it would be good to do a writing prompt series. My idea is that I’ll post different prompts, and then you can write out yours in the comment section. That way, the other commenters can leave feedback (if you want it). If you request feedback on your prompt, I’ll gladly do a review for you.
Today’s prompt is:
You’re home alone. Describe what you do when you are home alone or come up with your own story.
Here is my prompt:
With a sigh, I slide the window open. Sweat drips from my brow, but the fresh air will do me some good. All I see is darkness and the faint outlines of tree limbs blowing next to the shed. No sound enters my ears, and even the house is still. For a moment, a cool breeze caresses my skin, and I close my eyes, embracing the air from the outside.
Behind me, the sound of glass crashing to the floor snaps me from my thoughts. I jump, whip around, and sprint towards the noise. My mouth opens agape, and my sight lowers to the shattered vase under the table. The shards are all grouped together, in a circle, round and perfect.
My only thought is, How did the vase fall, and who scooped up the glass? No one is here, but me.

I can’t wait to read what you write! If you want feedback, just post it in your comment. Also, these will be random, so don’t expect them every day =)
