Last week I set you the task of writing a story in ten words and you found it easy! So this week, I’m going to make it a little harder for you. I’d like another ten word story but this week, you need to find some way of using the words ‘potato’ and ‘Friday’ in your story! I wonder if they’ll be many challengers this week!
In the meantime, be inspired by last week’s ten worders:
Keith Channing was on the ball with a super story in so few words:
The meteorite fell without warning. Not a single soul survived.
Jason Moody showed us that not even ten words are needed:
In the beginning, there was light.
Turn it off!
Sacha Black demonstrated that you can tell a story with a beginning, middle and end in only ten words:
“What have you done to my cookie?”
“So that’s crumbling!”
“Look out. Asteroid!”
“It’s not the end of the world.”
He came. He sawed. He’d ruined the wife’s new kitchen.
Dark eyes stared at me.
“I must clean this mirror.”
Woman created beautiful things.
The world was right.
Geoff Le Pard always gets it spot on:
Begin slow, raise the stakes and end with a twist.
Maria Wilhelmsson says she found it hard but she made it look effortless with such a good story:
She gasped with relief. Her son had survived the massacre.
Jasdeep Kaur sent in two brilliant stories:
Lorene collapsed. Leaving her worries behind, she flew to freedom.
Monica alienated her first date. She shouldn’t have taken neat.
