This prompt could evolve into a classic odd couple comedy, or the beginning of a supernatural thriller.
Desperate for work, a young man takes a job as an elderly woman’s personal assistant. It ends up being the most difficult job he’s ever done.
Take this writing prompt for a spin:
- What was he expecting the job to be like? How does reality contrast with these expectations?
- What kind of absurd or even disturbing situations can you create for these characters?
- In what ways is the elderly woman a typical grandmotherly character. In what ways is she different?
- How did the young man come across this job? Is there any indication that he was manipulated into doing so?
