Twitter can be an amazing source of writing fodder. Today I read this tweet (edited to maintain anonymity:
fire put out but homeowner is missing
Wow, so did the homeowner start the fire, then flee? Is he still inside? Intriguing story questions arise. If he started the fire, why would he do that? Insurance money? So why flee? Can’t get the insurance if you aren’t there to claim it. Did someone murder him, then hope to cover it up with arson? Then where is the body? It’s missing, remember. Wow.
So for today’s prompt, either use the above tweet for a story, or find something else on twitter (or the internet, in a newspaper, magazine etc.) that sparks your interest and write something using that as your starting point.
