Imagine that you are an animal at a zoo or aquarium. What type of animal are you? What is your habitat like? How do you feel about being held captive? How do you feel about people that visit and watch you? Feel free to include conversations with other animals that share the zoo or aquarium with you. No human POV, please!
Write a story about a holiday market that isn’t full of your usual selection of commercial items, but instead is offering bargain prices on intangible abstracts like “true love,” “unbreakable courage,” “the ability to control minds,” “x-ray vision,” and other stuff like that (let your imagination run wild on the possibilities of things found at the market – but remember to keep them intangible). Your main character is a customer. What does he/she buy? What does it cost? How is it packaged? Are there any special instructions? How do they use it? Or, if it’s a gift, who do they give it to, why, and how does that person use it?
