Each Friday we post one new writing prompt created by a Sarabande author. Prompts like this one are included in our online Reader's Guides along with discussion questions and suggested reading to accompany each title. So if you can't wait a week for the next prompt, visit our Reader's Guide page to find them all in one place!

This week's prompt comes from Amy Gustine, author of You Should Pity Us Instead.


Strangers on a Train

Create two characters who don’t know each other and are both in compelling—but totally unrelated--situations. Make them meet and see what happens.
