Foot traffic

This time, I swear. Aside from a few trips into the countryside in a few months, I am actually at a place with solid internet now.

Today, write about someone who has an immense, yet inane phobia. This can be a botanist who fears the color green, someone who walks the fifteen kilometers to work every day because they fear wheels, or some other humorous juxtaposition.

Is there a support group for such sufferers of various extreme phobias? Is it obvious there is a problem? How does one cope daily?

If I've posted a prompt like this (or any further prompt) before, just let me know and I'll come up with a new one. Either way, enjoy!

All too human

Today's prompt has been inspired in part by one William Gibson, author of the creatively complex Neuromancer, and generally well-written but at times headscratchingly obtuse technology-influenced novels. Or something like that.

Anyway, today, write about someone who, as a form of a mid-life crisis, has to come to the grips that they really are human. Perhaps someone stuck in the idea that they are an invincible businessman, coming across as a adolescent manchild, or someone experiencing death for the first time in their life. For someone who seeks avoidance to life's problems, forcing someone to stare them down every now and then might be good for them.

Still traveling across the country right now, but I should resume regularly posting prompts again soon!

Community

Delightfully enough, I think I'm the target of a downvote bot, for seemingly nearly every time I put a post up, about 10 minutes later it's been downvoted. Dunno how I can prove it though.

Anyway, here's today's prompt. For many people around the world, apartment housing is their only option as they attempt to make a living in a rather curious job market. It seems that while in the Western world, privacy is valued between tenants, elsewhere, neighbors will become friends, sharing food, gossip, and anything else that they can.

Today, write about a series of apartments that, by one reason or another, is forced to enter into a community with each other. Whether due to unsafe streets, city mandate, or just trying to discover more about each other, write about the dynamics that might arise from such a situation, or just the thoughts of someone who utterly hates all of her neighbors. Have fun!
