This month’s prompt comes from a writing exercise Margaret Wilkinson created for Mslexia:
Think of a situation you really dislike (multi-story car park at night, A&E department, gridlock on a motorway in a heatwave). Next add something that would make it even worse. Now imagine a character who hates the situation as much as you do, but who actually wants to stay there for some reason. Why?
