Daily Prompt #14:
I write because I can’t sleep. ~ Ben Mezrich
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. Include your name on it too (if someone decides to use your words as inspiration, you want to be sure they know who to give the credit to!)
Now, grab a post-it and stick it in your notebook. Underneath, write a short story inspired by it!
