Have you ever experienced something so unexpected that you went along with what was happening because you were so shocked? These “life shocks” are what inspired this writing prompt (the idea came from my genius husband). Are you ready for the challenge?

Challenge: The Toothless Dentist

Word count: 4,000 words or less
Genre: flash fiction, poem, short story, song, scene from film script or play, etc.
Due date: next Friday.
Prompt: Write from the perspective of a character that needs to see a dentist. This needs to be the first appointment with this particular dentist, for whatever reason. The dentist must have no teeth. Write about the character’s reaction to this. Link your writing to A Vase of Wildflowers on your blog and make sure to place the link to your story in the comments of this post.
