#AtoZchallenge: L is for Labyrinth

I have a confession to make. I never enjoyed the movie Labyrinth with David Bowie, though I did meet the magician who played his hands. A lot of folks in my generation love that movie but I've never cared for it.

That said, mazes can be great for fiction. Look at the recent success with Maze Runner. I didn't read it or see it because while YA is great, it's not where my heart is. But I can interpret book sales and box office numbers just like anyone else.

Then there are the droves of people who say, "You simply must read Maze Runner." I appreciate book suggestions as much as the next person, but there's nothing anyone simply must read. Not every book is for everyone, but then, that can turn into a whole other post! (In fact, I've just added it to my editorial calendar...look for it on July 3.)

Today I have a prompt for you:

Write a 1,000-1,500-word story about a character stuck in a maze.

Have fun and happy writing!
