Mystery Door Creative Writing Prompt

Write a story or fairy tale in which this door plays a key role.

Last night, a group of my students attended a presentation put on by two local authors. Following the presentation, we stood outside the library and chatted until we noticed the house across the street from the library. We then spent a fun ten minutes laughing and brainstorming story ideas about the door.

Here is a picture of the door into that house.

There are a few immediate questions this picture brings up based on the details. The door is overgrown with ivy. Small people with pointy hats could use this door. The mail is still delivered to it.

What other details do you notice? I’m sure there’s many more.

Here’s your prompt: Write a story or fairy tale in which this door plays a key role.
