A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Writing Prompt #112 “Personification Car”


For this week’s prompt I want you to imagine that you are a car. What’s it like listening to your owner scream/sing power ballads when they don’t think anyone is listening? What’s it like during family vacation when the kids are nagging, hungry, bored, and tired and the owners have reached the end of their frayed nerves? What’s it like during those long peaceful midnight drives with haunting music simmering in the background? What’s it like during a collision? A hot summer’s day? A frosty winter morning? In rain with stupid drivers and an owner full of rage? Contemplate any scenario you like but remember it is the car telling the story.
