    prompt:
    Take one of the given everyday items/places and write about how a person would view these things if the item was important in the relationship after the relationship ended. ie: a certain shirt would remind a girl about how much her ex liked it.
    Focus on the emotion they would feel as they saw it, and how they would react to using it/seeing it everyday afterwards.
    If you're feeling risque, flash back and forth to show how the couple were when they were together, and how they used the item.
    - A coffee pot.
    - A bench in the park.
    - A movie.
    - A subway car / a certain seat in the subway car.
    - A local coffee shop.

    If you try this, could you send me a link? I'd like to read it. Cute

    Scenery. Cemetary.
    The couple there are not dating.
    But they could be in love.
    They could be having an affair.
    Be creative.

    The last sentence should be.
    I should've known.
    Whether it be dialogue or narrative is your choice.
    I'm going to try this.
    But can instead of 'I should've known,' I'm going to use 'they should've known.'

    "Sometimes goodbye is a second chance."
    Write about the aftermath of a break-up.
    Focus mainly on the feelings of the person who has said "goodbye" in the relationship, and whether or not they should go back.
    Emotions should feature heavily in this piece.

    Lyric credit: "Second Chance" by Shinedown.
    I made one for this prompt: Second Chance.

    It turned out quite nicely.

    I've always wanted to write a Stockholm syndrome story based on these lyrics.
    Oh I might do something with this. I love Slipknot.

    Promt:

    A love triangle.
    It can be of any gender, but there must be a married couple in the triangle.
    Emotions need to be constant, and flowing in this story.
    The words "Why do you always do this to me?!" must be used somewhere in the story.
    Describe how each character feels in detail.
    I have a really great idea for this. Wow
