Last night’s writing prompt:


You have made a grave mistake. And this is your punishment. You will find up ahead nothing more than a small cabin. Enter it, and you will discover a rug. Move the rug and you will see a trap door. Open the trap door and enter. Because that is the only way you can find everything needed to discover your way home. There may be challenges. There may be danger. Don’t believe everything you hear or see. If you don’t make it, then justice will have been served. But if you can surmount all the obstacles and find twenty treasures, you will have redeemed yourself. You will be granted freedom to leave this wretched place. Good luck.

–the Zork tribunal
