Rumbled

Logo for the Fandango Story Starter Prompt

For Fandango’s Story Starter #24, where we build something around the following phrase:

She overheard the couple whispering in the adjoining room and realized…

Jesus, it was hard enough, cheating on your husband, and keeping it secret.

But then add to that, her show on Channel Nine regularly received over ten million viewers, each and every one of the bastards out to erode whatever slivers of privacy she had left.

And add to that, that her partner just happened to present on the Shopping Channel.

An anonymous motel… an assumed name… but she overheard the couple whispering in the adjoining room and realized that the game was up.

        1. I kinda think with these franchises that they all go downhill. The artists get pushed out and the money men take over, realising they can make a quick buck.

          When I used to read voraciously, my preference was for one-time authors, simply because of that. I wanted to read then before they hit the formula.

          1. Yes that’s a great point and what kills me about Bridget Jones is that in the 3 rd series she wasn’t relatable anymore all her self effacing qualities which were adorable in the first two series were thrown out the window and the plot in 3 was horrible and terribly cliched
