“I think of difficult people as my teacher instead of my enemy.” ~ Unknown

Write about having to deal with the most difficult person in the universe.  Who was the person involved? What were they doing to be difficult and how was it handled? What lessons were learned, if any?

Write from personal experience or, create a fictional character. Is the “person”  living, human, or another species?  Were they being difficult as a result of a communication issue or for the sake of creating drama?

Get creative and have fun.

“Man is not what he thinks he is, he is what he hides.”  ~ André Malraux

Every town has its secrets. It’s moving day and you’ve just moved into your new home. While exploring each room, you find an old journal tucked away in the attic. This journal reveals your new town’s darkest and deepest secret.

What is the secret and what would happen if it were suddenly exposed? Would you expose it? Would it cause chaos and mayhem, or would it cause utter embarrassment to a few of the town’s elite? What would the consequences be? Would your life be in danger? 

Get creative and have fun!
