    Just a prompt to give people a few to choose from. This will probably be the hardest one:

    You and your spouse/partner/best friend spend your holiday in a cabin and things start to get intense. Write a dramatic monologue that tells us a story of what happened.

    Note: A dramatic monologue is a poem spoken, usually, by a narrator directly involved, and which tells a story that unfolds somewhat dramatically. They are also very one-sided, meaning, the speaker is the only one with a voice. You can find examples online, but I think "Porphyria's Lover" is a good one. You can find it here: http://www.bartleby.com/101/720.html

    (hint: they do not all have to be bleak and disturbing, but have a general tendency to be somewhat eerie.)

    As with the other's I'll be working on mine soon! Good luck to those who are daring enough to try.
