Short story Saturday #1

To encourage myself (and maybe others) to write more, I will post a prompt every saturday to write a short story. Maybe from time to time I will share what I have written, and if you have written something based on the prompt do leave a comment, I'm curious as to what you would have written.

This week's prompt:

His grandfather handed him a strange looking book and told him not to show it to anyone. He gave him the adress of a place by the name 'The Curtain'. He needed to go there right away to pass the book on to someone else. The person who was supposed to pick up the book would approach him and say 'They say tonight is as good as any'.

Some questions to get you started:
What does the book contain? Why must it remain a secret? Who is the person he is suposed to hand the book over to? What kind of place is 'The Curtain'?


  1. What a fun idea! I wish I had time to do more writing - I really need to!

    1. Thank you! I'm the same. With these short stories I hope I will take some more time to write.
