This week’s writing prompt is inspired by the book I’m reading at the moment, which is very easily becoming my favorite book this year. Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton is a humorous novel told from the point of view of a domesticated pet crow who is determined to save humanity from an apocalypse. This premise was so unusual that I had to pick the book up.
