Hello, my friends of Fire!! I hope you are well on this final day of July! I have been poking around at games and writing prompts again (I’m going to have to figure out other things to do when I am back from vacation), and I found a Lottery Generator – it generates random numbers for a writer’s lottery ticket “back-up plan”. I was poking at it and I thought – suppose these numbers were in code? I know a common practice is to use a cypher, where each number stands for a letter of the alphabet. I challenge you to the following:
Go to the website, scroll down to the Lottery Generator, and generate a series of lottery numbers. Develop a code that fits them, then write a piece of short fiction about any or all of the following: the process, the code, what it means, the people to whom it refers, being a code breaker, anything else that is relevant.
Have fun, please share in the comments.
