Today’s Writing Prompt: Use your phone.
I am constantly commenting on how much we are tied to our phones both literally and figuratively. I work in higher education, and I remember when I was a student sitting outside on campus on a nice day with a book and seeing other students doing the same. Now everyone is on their phones. I must admit that I spend a great deal of time on my phone as well. So for this writing prompt, we will put our phones to use.
For this writing prompt, take a picture or text from your phone and write a story about it. Make up an entirely different situation or expand on it.
