Special Delivery: A Quick Writing Prompt

A bouquet of flowers is delivered to your MC, but they are not a pleasant surprise. Who are they from and why is she so bothered? Create the scene.

If flowers are too cliche, send your main character something else. A fruit basket. A pizza. A subscription box. A box of Omaha steaks. Pictures of the shrine he's constructed in her honor. Creepy.


When I was a teenager, an elderly customer at the grocery store I worked at left me and another girl lingerie. Yikes... that was a very unpleasant surprise.


Give your main character an unpleasant delivery and see what happens. Share your creepiest, weirdest, wonkiest ideas below!
