Writing prompt #3: Dirty Hands

April 18, 2017

By Shawn Thomas Anderson


You wake from a trance.


You’re standing in a strange place, with hands covered in something.


It can be a familiar substance or something you cannot identify: mud, dried blood, chalk dust, wet cement, weird blue goo that smells horrible…


Unravel the mystery.
