I need help, and I'm hoping you wonderful poets and writers out there can help me. I just cannot write lately, a few poems have passed my pen, but I can't write a story for the life of me.

Give me a scene, a character, an idea or some bone to divine a future from...

My thanks in advance to all who try and help me break this mental block.

In a dark cavern at the end of the world, the people cower in fear waiting for the end or a new beginning. Sunlight gleams weakly down but it is sunlight without strength, from now on the strength will have to come from the people. They look to the sky crawling on their hands and knees, shield they eyes from the sun's glare and...

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

Sharon I've written out your challenge, changed a little, but I think it's alright. It's right here in the prose forum. Thank you for the idea Sharon! It got me flowing again!

Kethry, now I'll get to work on your piece soon. Thank you for the idea!
