Figment’s Daily Theme of the day:
Your Daily Theme for 5/22/20
Despair, Nevada
 
There are so many cities in the world, and a nearly infinite number of fictional towns in addition. Pick an intangible noun (think “hope,” “friendship,” “fear,” “loathing,”) and write a short scene set in a town with that name.
Creativity, Georgia

Ethan walked past Contraption Row on his way home from school, dragging his feet. He’d just managed to skip Creative Theory 101. What was so great about uniqueness anyway? Or even creativity? Why not just do whatever you want to, without bothering about the result? Why care about differentiating it from everything else? He kicked a rock in frustration. His eyes followed it as it rebounded off the signpost for Originality Lane and rolled to a stop near a broken mirror fragment, diffusing the reflecting sunlight. Thinking back to Haiku 101, he scribbled,

“Stolidly settled rock-

Softening sunbeam.”

He smiled.
