Finish the Story: A Collaboration with Tanmay Jain

Dear readers, I guess I have something interesting up for you guys.

When Tanmay from Bookinton asked me if I would like to participate in his ‘Finish the Story’ collaboration, I was not only excited but anxious too. Excited because, well, who doesn’t like to devote time toward something they love to do and anxious if I would be able to make the time since I was traveling for most part of the month.

But I agreed and jumped into the pool with 6 others writers. They are:

The rules are simple. With prompts less than 50 words, all of us are expected to write 300-word stories with prompts from every writer. You can visit their blogs to catch up with their tales.

Here goes my prompt:
As soon as Alicia stepped on to the second landing, the lights went out and a hand grabbed her into the all-consuming darkness.

I can’t begin to sketch my own stories by connecting the dots from the prompts. Feel free to participate should you find your fingers tingling from a writing rush. The first story will be up soon. Excited? Stay tuned!
