You finally have a moment to write, but what to do with your limited time? Here’s a practical prompt to kickstart the story you’re working on right now. The clock is ticking, people. Start writing.

Once you have a firm beginning and end, it’s easier to see the path you’ll need to take your characters down to prepare them for the end.
