Since I now have a load of time on my hands, due to losing my job, I thought I would try to put my mania thoughts into some writing. Now I am not a writer, I don’t pretend to be so expect there to be errors in my writing. I don’t really care.
I am a big fan of science fiction and fantasy so the writing prompts I create will usually be geared towards these genres. Feel free to use one of my prompts and write a short story. I would love to publish any and all pieces of writing to my blog.
The sun, low in the sky, was the first glimpse of life John had seen. This sun, not like the one back home on Earth had a fiery red glow radiating from its centre.

Have fun using the prompt. I am going to craft my own short story based off it and link it back here.
My Entry – Named: In The beginning
The sun, low in the sky, was the first glimpse of life John had seen. This sun, not like the one back home on Earth had a fiery red glow radiating from its center. His eyes sore from staring, he turned away only to be confronted by another person. How could this be he thought. I was the only person to go through the door.
“Hello there” prompted the stranger.
John was still in some shock, it didn’t help that the person looking back at him was familiar to him.
“How are you here?” John shouted.
The stranger looked John in the eyes and replied “I think you already know the answer to that question John”.
He knew my name, how the hell does he know my name thought John as he looked puzzled by the others response.
“The door, back on Earth. It was a test, only one person could travel though it”.
The stranger nodded in agreement.
“That’s correct John, only one person can travel through the door”.
“Then how are you here? And why do you look like me?” John replied.
The stranger smiled.
“John, I am you. This is your place. Only you can travel here”.
“I don’t understand?”
John jumped with a fright. “What was that sound?”
The sun, no longer bright in the sky had set.
The darkness moved in quickly.
“John it is time” the stranger stated.
“What do you mean?”
“John you were involved in an accident, you didn’t make it”
John shocked by the statement asked “You saying I am dead?”
The stranger smiled and put his hand out.
“It is time for you to move on”
John took the hand, he felt a sudden warmth running through his body, everything went dark around him.
Then a light appeared.
John looked through the light, he saw a doctor. He was being delivered.
He tried screaming but he couldn’t.
He tried talking but he couldn’t.
He tried to remember who he was, but he couldn’t.
He was now lying on a table, wrapped in a blanket.
He opened his eyes and was fascinated by the world around him.
He was no longer John.
