Your prompt, in hopes that going to a monthly prompt schedule might entice more of you to take the leap in these overwhelming times, is:

An out-of-the-way spot such as a retreat of some sort where a character is seeking solitude, and someone/something else has different ideas entirely.

Note some rule changes: you have 24 hours from when you view the prompt to write, revise, and post your piece. There is no word limit except as may be dictated by time, and your piece does not need to directly include the prompt; it is here for your inspiration. Please start a new thread entitled "FFC Jan 2021" and do not put the prompt in your title, as that makes it visible on the What's New tab to the vast hordes of people who may not yet be ready to start the challenge.

New people are always welcome to participate -- invite your friends! Whether you post a piece or not, you are welcome to comment on posted work, but please remember this is not a critique space. The prompt is "live" until the next one (February) is posted. Old prompts and responses are moved to the FFC Archive. Good luck and good writing!
