Friday Prompt – With Help From Bridget Jones!

~ Prompt Provided By A.M. Willard

To kick off the weekend, we’ve got a writing prompt direct from the last scene in the 2001 Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Bridget Jones

Imagine you’ve been courting that special someone, but in the mix of it all – he drives you insane¦ Like any respectable lady, you keep a well thought out diary. It includes your fears, accomplishments, hopes, dreams, and even the people you despise. It just so happens that the one your heart yearns for is the one that it loves to hate at the same time.

On a cold night, during a blizzard, he shows up at your doorstep to confess his undying love for you. You, on the other hand, have been lounging in your cupcake pajamas and fuzzy socks, eating your favorite snack. Excusing yourself to your room to change and freshen up, you forget that your diary is out on the end table for the world to read your deepest darkest secrets. Upon reentering, not only has the man you love vanished, but the last entry that you wrote about him is open.


  • Did he get cold feet and run off?
  • Did he read your private thoughts, and decided to run away?
  • Do you take the time to change and search for him?
  • Do you run around mad in the cold with nothing but your undies and tank covering your body?
  • Do you plop down and sulk in your nonexistent love life?

Now you tell us how you’d write this scene? Leave your scene in the comments below.

Need inspiration? This should help.

Good luck! 🙂
