A portal’s a bad thing, right? Right?!


If You’re New

Welcome to the weekly Wacky Writing Prompt! Each Saturday, I’ll post a new weird and quirky prompt to get your creative juices flowing. To participate, all you have to do is write flash fiction, a short story, or a poem based on the prompt. If you’ve posted your writing somewhere online, please post a link in the comments below so I can add your stories to next week’s prompt. Who knows, your unique take may break through someone else’s writer’s block!


A portal opens before you. Someone emerges from the portal, hands you a device, and says they don’t have time to explain but it’s imperative that you keep the device safe at all costs. Before you can ask any questions, the person disappears back through the portal. What is the device? Who was the mysterious person? And what happens next?
