Second Set of Prompts!  
These prompts were all submitted by psychosazevamp. Feel free to email your suggestions to either Lou (museymuse) (museymuse[at]hotmail[dot]co[dot]uk) or myself (keladryie[at]gmail[dot]com and make the subject line something with the word 'prompt' in it ;D



1. Read this letter:

To my dearest parents, grandparents and brother
I am going to ask the hardest and very last thing from you all. I do not want you to forgive me, what I have done is not excusable and above all else I knew better than to do what I did... I have not been wise and I am asking you all to please forget that you ever had a daughter, granddaughter or sister. I know that this will come as a shock. I am so very sorry for the shame I have brought on you all.
I needed to come home with my pride and this seemed the easiest and quickest way to do it. I have not been well for months now and have been so terribly homesick. I love you all and god do I miss you, but please never mention my name again, try to do as I say and act as though you never knew me and throw any photographs of me away. I cannot do five, ten or twenty years like this. You produced a wonderful human being who wanted to change the world, but has instead messed it up.
I am so very, very sorry.
Sandra


Use the letter as you wish – you can include it in you final piece, or not – the choice is yours. You can edit the first line – to whom the letter is addressed – and who it is from if it suits the needs of your work. Your final piece should be a minimum of 500 words (unless it is a script, or similar).
N.B: the book the letter is taken from is 'Forget You Had A Daughter: Doing Time In The Bangkok Hilton' (Sandra Gregory with Michael Tierney).



2. Write a play where there are only six lines of dialogue. This does not mean your characters have only six sentences in which to work with; bear in mind that the stage directions can be as long as you like.



3. Take any event – from the day to day, such as a birthday; to the historical, for example the fall of the Roman Empire – and give us at least three different perspectives of the event.



4. Write something based on this song:
How to Save a Life by the Fray - Minimum word limit: 500

Lyrics can be Found [here]
