June writing prompt: Ticket to misery

Advertisement

 

Write a short story from the perspective of someone going on a trip he or she does not want to take. What misadventures does this person experience along the way? What is the backstory? Can it get better? Start the story at what seems like a random moment in the trip, filling in the details as the journey plays out.
