Durn Pests

A friend of mine is dealing with ants. They're showing up in the strangest places--like in the shower. She cleans them up but a new trail shows up elsewhere. Treating for pests cant be a frustrating saga, and we'll use that as our springboard to get the creative juices flowing. Write a brief scene about human vs. foe. You can choose what pest you want to use. Here's a few ideas if you need one:
  • termites
  • flies
  • ants
  • rats
  • mice
  • mites
Now here's the real challenge. Take your brief scene and write it from the pest's POV. This will help you see a whole new world of details. You might even ask yourself, which is really the pest? Have fun.
