Monday Sparks — Writing Prompts: YA Speculative Fiction

fantasyw1-2704453_1280I used this photo last year during my month on speculative fiction. I like it so much I’m using it again. Something about the girl’s pose intrigues me. And the sun setting on what looks like a steamy summer day in the city. Perfect for a techno noir, like Blade Runner.

Here’s what I wrote last year:

“A whisper of a breeze signaled the coming of night. As the police jets patrolled the city, the broiling sun slid to the horizon. In fifteen minutes, I’d be free. At least for a few hours, sneaking into the cracks and crevices in this city where the patrols either didn’t know about or didn’t go and no cameras watched. I checked my phone. Time to go. I got up and walked over to the street lamp. I wrenched aside a loose metal panel and set my phone inside. Now I was invisible in the city. I went to the door and ran down the steps.”

Now it’s your turn. What’s the story with the teen girl, the futuristic city, and the patrolling jets?

  1. Wow, you have a pretty awesome imagination !! It sounds pretty good to me! This reminds me of when I was in grade school and our teacher would put up a big picture of different things on the chalkboard and then she would ask us to write a story about it, I used to love those days, I think she would put a picture up once or twice a week and that was my favorite day, I would just let my imagination soar a write a story.
