Apartment complexes are rarely completely full. Landlords try to fill the empty apartments as quickly as possible to avoid losing money, but other tenants move out and that creates another vacancy. But what if you owned an apartment complex and couldn’t fill a single room? This week’s prompt focuses on that idea. Think you’re up for the challenge?
Challenge: The Apartment Home
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: Imagine your main character is a billionaire who became bored of their inherited wealth and decided to try and work. Have them buy an apartment complex and live onsite. Then don’t give them any renters (you make up the reason as to why). Have your main character begin to live in some of the vacant apartments (again the reason is up to you).
