Write a scene where a character quits, or is fired from, their job.
This could be based off real experience, or entirely made up. Think about why they have to leave, and the ramifications of doing so.
The memories flooded back as I sat in my office, the dim light casting long shadows across the room. The case that led to my downfall replayed in my mind like a haunting movie. A teenage girl, terrified and broken, her trust shattered by the one man who should have protected her.
I leaned back in my chair, my fingers tapping a restless rhythm against the wooden desk. The acrid taste of regret l...
“BE GONE YOU GOOD FOR NOTHING!” He screamed. I winced at the level of noise he was making with his shouts. I was sure the whole office could hear our conversation and my cheeks burned red with humiliation.
“Look, I’m sorry about the inconvenience this has caused but I’m sure you would agree that by loosing me, many significant assets I provide are much needed in terms of success would just be-“ ...
The raindrops had declared war on the tin roof. As if I needed any help stayin awake. I reached into the darkness till I felt the chain on my bedside lamp and pulled. “Christ thats fuckin bright” I thought to myself as I squinted and gave my eyes a minute to adjust to the light. My pupils finally focused enough for me to read the crooked clock on the wall. 4:37 AM, “guess I’m the early bird toda...
Not the prompt, but I wanted to share. ❤️🩹
The world out there
They don’t seem to notice
That time has stopped
A quick word, “I’m sorry.”
And then they go back
To their typical chat
Dental visits, the weather,
Work, school, whatever.

You stood beside me
Through the pain
Your arm around me
You stayed until
I was whole again
(End of my series for now)

Lenny took his seat across from Brooklyn’s desk.
“So,” Lenny began, “what’s this about?”
Brooklyn sighed before starting, “Well… I’ve been noticing you haven’t been doing what I’ve ...
‘We don’t need useless people’
Useless, useless, useless, useless, useless,
All my life, that was all I heard. I wasn’t the genius like my younger brother nor was crazy athlete like my sister.
I was just normal, average and as basic as they come.
If qualities were stats, all of mine would be 50%.
But there was nothing wrong with being normal, it just means people have low expecta...
A man in a suit scowls at a computer screen. With every hour, he bites his lip and grabs another cup of coffee. Eventually, he bites too hard and his lip bleeds.
A call comes for him from the higher management. He’s let go. The office is still as a clear midnight sky. He gathers his things and goes home. He packs up his clothes in a backpack and sets out on the highway.
He stops when he sees a h...
I said screaming into the air as I dashed my pen to the floor.
How fucking dare they. No matter. It has no matter to me now. The audacity!
“We’d appreciate if you packed your belongings for us…”
“Keep them asshole! Or throw them into the trash!” I roared mightily.
I had no belongings worth taking anyway. Overworked and underpaid. They can stick it where the sun don’t shine!
Dean paced around his office. He knew John was going to arrive any moment.
He told himself that even though he really didn’t want to do what he had to do, he had no option not to do what he had to do – if that made any sense.

He then heard the knock on the door.
Dean quickly sat down at his desk. He then rubbed his face like a raccoon a ...
