On Writing, Writing Prompts

Writing Prompt 27

KA-CHUNK! Records in Annapolis, MD, has a closed sign that reads “Sorry we’re dead.” I loved this so much that I decided it was the closed sign on the door of a main character’s tattoo shop; it fit perfectly for the dark humor vibe I was going for. It’s been one of several interesting or odd signs I’ve come across. Your challenge for this week’s writing prompt is to find a way to use one of the signs in this post (or another that you find in the wild) in a piece of writing. Maybe it has only a brief cameo in a scene or maybe the sign ends up playing a pivotal role in the plot. Up to you!
