Two phrase stories

As often happens with Himanshu Bhatnagar’s prompt, the phrase produced a cluster of responses.

The prompt phrase is: He looked at the blank screen…

The challenge is to finish it. Follow the link above to join in.

My phrases:

He looked at the blank screen…while he waited for the dilithium crystals to warm up.

He looked at the blank screen…and doodled a pair of specs and a moustache in felt pen over it.

He looked at the blank screen…that suddenly wasn’t blank, and the hand that he saw was reaching for his throat.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
