This challenge has ended!
Lately, doctors have been on my mind. Firstly, visiting them is always a pain, but necessary. Secondly, there are many types of doctors.
Your job is to write a story with a doctor in it. It can be somebody visiting one, or the doctor could be a small role, or even merely discussed. The doctor could be the protagonist, antagonist, or just a memory.
You could go so far as to invent an imaginary disease, an apocalypse, or new drug.
Any form of submission accepted, poetry, prose, and in any genre.
I entered, slightly off topic as usual. Thanks for the inspiration. I quite like what wound up doing.
…Ok, I’m about to post one. I know it doesn’t really work but I couldn’t help myself. I’m going to say here and in the piece that I didn’t create the character or the idea……you’ll see what I mean.
Seems a lot of stories to read, I can’t be bothered; Did anyone else use a pathologist as the doctor?
Oh man, and I just posted a poem about being a doctor before reading this challenge. Doh! Ah well, perhaps I can come up with something else.
I’m actually feeling a bit under the weather myself right now. This is the perfect challenge. Now just to think of a more serious story…
only Lore :)
You really love new drugs, don’t you Elsha.
Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
