Except they're so colorful and cute, and they fit right on your finger.

For today's writing prompt, something scary becomes fun, sweet, cute, silly or kind. Something wild becomes tame.

Go Small Or Go Home: Writing Prompt

All over Ann Arbor, Michigan, are these very small fairy doors. Business - especially those that cater to children and tourists - use them to attract customers. But they're ridiculously enchanting. Sometimes people will leave a small token for the fairies, making the doors seem like tiny shrines to fairyhood.

For today's writing prompt, make something shrink. Your character can lose weight, or perhaps their bank account shrinks. Maybe they have to move to a smaller house. Whatever you choose, see if you can't make it better for your character - or even enchanting.
