(Plain text)

TOPIC: "The Coffee Shop Scene"

Choose a scenario (ex. 1, 2, or 3) and a perspective (ex. Person A or Person B) and write a short story about the situation from one of the person's perspectives.

Scenario 1: It's Person A's first time in a coffee shop and nothing on the menu looks familiar to them so they don't know what to order. They turn to Person B standing next to them in line and ask them what they should order. Person B believes that Person A is hitting on them.

Scenario 2: Person A is in a coffee shop in a foreign country and does not speak the language. They know what they want to order and have practiced meticulously exactly what to say to make the order. They get to the counter and say what they practiced. Person B is on the other side of the counter and does not understand what Person A is saying. Person A repeats the phrase twice more but Person B still does not understand.

Scenario 3: Person A is on a 2nd date with Person B and they like this person. Person B chooses the location of the date and brings Person A to a cat Cafe. Person A is allergic to cats.

WOW!

I found out about the news last night when the kind @wendyth16 was the first to comment to congratulate me, but I was too sleepy to answer her and read the content of the challenges for this week.

I am very happy, this kind of initiative has helped me to improve my writing and of course, the suggestions and teachings of the beautiful @millycf1976 and the good friend @leaky20 have been a fundamental part of that improvement. Thank you very much for allowing me to be in this beautiful community.

My congratulations to all those who participated, they were magnificent stories in which I was excited and had fun. It has been a satisfying week.

I have my eye on one of this week's choices, now I'm going to recreate the scene in my mind and then put it into letters. Let's go all out!

We'll keep reading.

A kiss for the ladies and a hug for the gentlemen.

I'm pleased with the improvements and confidence you have gained and it shows in your writing:)))

I do get that about being too sleepy to read, I noticed that Wendy responded so I thought that she must be a night owl.

You're making me homesick with those lovely green bananas in the background. Everything is so lush and beautiful😍

We are looking forward to what this week's entries will bring:)

PS.
Just a reminder, you'll receive 20% beneficiary rewards of this post!

Some really awesome choices last week; massive shout out to germanandradeg!

And, to our wonderful moderators, thanks for another chance to do something to push the fiction boundaries in different directions. Golly, I wouldn't call myself a romance writer, but I enjoyed flirting with the genre this week!

Haha! I'm not a romance reader either, but I certainly enjoyed reading about Roxanne's little quirks and the scenarios were so vivid, just like watching a movie.
Thanks for entering:)))

Until next week then! I'm already looking forward to these prompt posts dropping on a Monday. I feel like I structure my life around hive prompts these days - but, I do love routine, so it's working for me!

It amazes me every time I read your entries. You have EXCELLENT writing skills. They are pleasurable to read.
My concentration is not the best, so it's rare that a writer holds me to the end with every sentence in one go.🙌
