Flash Fiction: Day Two

Daily Prompt #18:

Won the World. Lost the Girl.

Write for seven minutes on this six-word story. See where it takes you.

Today, we’re going to study and write two-sentence stories.   Similar to six-word stories, the focus is on brevity and diction, but you have a little more leeway.

Here’s a couple of spooky samples taken from a website:

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 stories now.  It doesn’t have to be scary.


 

From the ones you wrote, pick your favorite two-sentence story and write in on a post-it note. Post it on our board.


 

Now, grab a post-it and stick it in your notebook. Underneath, write a short story inspired by it.
