So many stories based in the early 1900s seem to at least mention someone’s father’s study (or possibly the main character’s study). These rooms may seem like a piece of a long-gone time, but we’re seeing their resurgence. That resurgence is under a new name: the home office.
For a lot of kids growing up, myself included, the idea of watching your parents work and “helping” as much as you can seems both mystical and important. For some of us, that “help” that we provided inspired us to start our own businesses or take part in our parent’s trade later in life.
Your prompt for this week is to tell the tale of a kid who is thinking about their father’s study.
Maybe they’re forbidden from entering. Maybe they snuck in and broke something. Maybe they’re helping out. Maybe they’re trying to read some big old book that’s on the bookshelf. Maybe they are overhearing a heated conversation that leads to __________.
Regardless of what route you take, this prompt is free to use however you please.
