Daily Prompt #18:
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.
Now, grab a post-it and stick it in your notebook. Underneath, write a short story inspired by it.
