I’m taking an online writing course which includes bi-weekly assignments, which, since this is only the second week, I believe, includes regular prompts for free writing. Here was the assignment for last week:
“Write a story using that phrase as your first line and include a twist at the end. Keep your story to 300 words or less. Write as tight as possible, that is, really select words with care. Trim out the extras. Add dialogue.”
Admittedly, I didn’t add much dialogue, but I like how my little story turned out. I love to read character driven apocalyptic/dystopian sci-fi but rarely get a decent idea in that genre, so I was pleased that this idea showed up. Who knows, maybe there is more here!
I’ll be sharing my assignments here as we go along. Continue reading “…but I called it.”
