This Week’s Writing Prompt:
Imagine that it is a lovely sunny day. You are taking a walk through a lovely field and woods with your dog, like you always do, on a lovely path. Suddenly, your dog darts off through the underbrush barking. You are calling and your dog isn’t coming back. You go chasing after them and the undergrowth is scratching your legs and the dog frantically barks. Then suddenly the barking stops. When you catch up, you find your dog staring at an old door just standing in the middle of the woods.
