WN 10: Two-sentence story. Similar to six-word stories, the focus is on brevity and diction, but you have little more leeway with these.
Here’s a couple of spooky samples taken from a website with lots more:
I woke up to hear knocking on glass. At first, I thought it was the window until I heard it come from the mirror again.
She asked why I was breathing so heavily. I wasn’t.
Okay, try making your own two-sentence story now. It doesn’t have to be scary.
Consider sharing it in the comments to this post!
Okay folks, it’s our first workshop day. I’m pumped! While I am conferencing with students individually, these are your options:
* write a 25-WORD story
* write in your writer’s notebook about anything in any form
* work on a post for your blog
* read a great book
* help a fellow writer with his/her writing
In case of writer’s block, I’ve found a really cool plot generator that you can use to get a story going, using provided basic plot elements. If you don’t have a phone, feel free to use the Smartboard to generate a plot for yourself.
Feel free to post any of your flash fiction today on Twitter with the hashtag #keskesflashfiction as well.
Okay, happy writing/reading!
