Writing Prompt #71

Average Student

You are an average high school student that falls into an alternative universe.  Okay, fine.  You just wish the prince assigned to protect you on your journey home didn’t need more protection than you.

Happy Tuesday!  One of my favorite fantasy subgenres is portal fantasy.  You’ve probably read, or more likely watched, one of these.  An average person by some way, shape, or form ends up in a world that is completely different from the one that they know.  Think Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, Coraline, Chronicles of Narnia, Labyrinth.  The list is quite long once you think about it.  I personally love them and have dabbled in writing one or two.  Usually, the story has something to do with getting home or saving the alternative universe but what if your character got saddled with a guide character that was borderline useless and bumbling at best.  What would your character have to do keep themselves alive?  What skills would they have to learn?  Or better yet… what skills do they already have to keep themselves alive?

If this prompt doesn’t really fit your bill for the day, check out some of my previous writing prompts for a different one!  Remember, if you use one of my prompts all your writing belongs to you.  No credit necessary!  However, I’d love to read what you’ve written.  Post a link to in the comments below or send it to me via social media.
