Synchronized Swimmers

Twins are said to have a deeper connection than ordinary siblings. This prompt explores that connection intensifying.

A pair of twins have been training as competitive synchronized swimmers. One day, after a particularly long practice, they find that they are beginning to communicate telepathically.

Take this writing prompt for a spin:

  • Are the twins excited or afraid at this new development?

  • Does this magic fade with distance, or does it work even when they are in different places?

  • What is the twins’ home life like? Do they confide in their parents or guardians about what has happened?

  • Are they using this to their competitive advantage while swimming? What other ways might they use their powers?
