Last-chance Writing Prompt #2

Although we’re still far from the dog days of summer and the afternoons feel endless, the Solstice has just passed, meaning that the days are once again getting shorter.


Set your story within a world where day is night and night is day. Is not being able to sleep still as frustrating? How have social activities, like dining and sports, been impacted by taking place in the darkness? Does this switch even matter at all? Use careful detail, focus on both the cultural and the personal, and be sure to keep it under 300 words.
