Writing Prompt: ANswering Machine Part 2

You Have 5 Messages, Part 2 of 2

You've played back your messages. You know - or don't know - why these people called you.

Now, it's time to find out.

Of the five messages on your answering machine, 'play back' the third message. Listen to it carefully.

Now - write that message from the POV of the person who left it for you.

You have the 'what' - a message left for you. Now, write the 'who', 'where', 'when' and 'how come' - without using those specific words.

This second part can be as short or as long as you want. It can be whimsical, fantastic, erotic, realistic, comedic, horrific or any variation thereof. Also, if you'd like to build off of one of the submitted messages, go ahead and write it!

Send it to us! We'll post it on the blog and on the website!
