What are Monthly Prompts? They are the Prompts for The Monthly Script Writing Contest.

The opposite of Death is Life. Like Death, there are a lot of aspects to consider when thinking about Life. Life can be the birth of someone. It can also be of how someone lives their life or even their whole Life. True, scripting about someone’s whole Life in under ten pages might be hard to do, but it’s not impossible.

However, you interpret this Prompt that is your challenge this month.
