Day 3: Keys

Day 3: Keys

Keys are funny things.

I love giant old-fashioned keys, the kind that look like they could unlock a castle, or a treasure chest. In computer games, I love picking up a key. What could it unlock?

Today’s prompt is this: when you think of keys, what springs to mind?

The keys to people’s hearts and minds?

Physical keys to secret rooms?

Or an encryption key like the Rosetta Stone, which was how we finally deciphered ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic writing?

Set a timer and see what pops out of your brain.

Happy writing!
