A neo-noir-ish story.

A hard boiled farmer with a side line as a private eye in a post-apocalyptic world wonders why this dame thinks that he can find someone missing since before the end of the world.

Woah. That's a good one. I've never written anything like that. Thanks!

Very welcome.  It is something I want to write, but don't think I'll ever get around too so I thought it would be a good idea to see what someone else would do.

I'm gonna have to do some serious brainstorming. I had an idea and thought it would be really easy to get started, but then I asked myself just how the world ended and tripped myself up. Been done so many times in so many ways. And apocalypse is something I've never really brainstormed for.

Do what you got to do, but is that needed?  If you establish it has ended that meets the bare minimum.

hmm, that's a good point. I don't have to spell everything out, do I? In fact, it'd probably be better that I don't. Should be more about the characters and the missing person the chick wants him to find.

Well then I'll have to scrape it up and toss it in the air won't I? Haha, I have some ideas.

Thought I'd revive this thread incase anyone wants some prompt inspiration. Or if people feel like just sharing great prompts to inspire others :)

Here's a strange one:

Ooo, fun!

My phone's photo gallery was erased and replaced with one picture... of me sleeping. I live alone.
