Today's writing prompt comes from Writers Digest, one of our favorite resources for writers. In addition to advice on writing better and getting published, they also post weekly creative writing prompts on their website. They invite you to add your 500 word responses to each prompt in the comments section, which makes for fun reading. This is another friendly (ahem, bossy) reminder that there is a wealth of inspiration out there and no exuse to not just write already.
"Someone Else is Living Here:
Your kids love watching CSI, so you buy them a forensic starter’s kit for Christmas. They begin running simple, fake experiments, collecting DNA, and dusting for fingerprints around the house. When you look at all of the powder and prints they pull, you find there are more fingerprints there then just you and your family’s. Whose are they?"
