To brush away the brain-cobwebs, every Wednesday I write a story based on a writing prompt from the awesome subreddit /r/WritingPrompts.
Last week’s story was a Halloween-themed emotional rollercoaster that had both a happy and sad ending, and this week I chose this prompt submitted by visijared:
“A physically inferior alien race has been slowly injecting Earth with leisure-focused technology over centuries to soften up humans pre-invasion.”
Inspiration hit me pretty quickly with this one. I won’t spoil anything, but I will say it was very fun to write.
I’m really happy with how this one came out, but you can be the judge yourself! You can read the story here.
