Idea You Can Steal 16 -- A Place Outside of Time

My neighborhood has gotten close to a foot of snow this month. And more snow is in the forecast. So I’ll have good reason to stay indoors and work on my stories. Here’s an idea you can use the next time the weather keeps you inside.


A student at a magical academy realizes that a big class project is due tomorrow morning – a project they haven’t even begun working on. The student casts a time manipulation spell so they can complete the assignment before the deadline. The problem is that they don’t know how to undo it. And there’s something else in this place-out-of-time. Whatever it is, it isn’t friendly. How does the student magician avoid this malevolent entity and get back to their own reality?
