Stories are built on conflict and a lot of the conflict in life is built on either a lack of information or having the wrong information. Arguably, having the wrong information and thinking it is right is worse and so provides more conflict. Think about a love story where a misunderstanding drives the two love interests apart or a spy story where the hero mistakenly thinks his best friend is a traitor. Or a mystery where the hero has been framed and has to find the real killer.
Today’s prompt is the following:
Write a story about a character having the wrong information.
This can be any genre and any type of story. It can be funny or deadly serious.
If you do write a story and would be willing to share it with me, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to read it. You can also submit it at this link for a chance of getting it published with next week’s prompt. If you post it on your own site, send me the link.
Have a good week. Stay safe and healthy!
