FINISH THAT THOUGHT #36
I was so blessed to have my Momma, all my sisters (missing a couple brothers :( ), and all the kiddos (Nine cousins!!!) over at the house this weekend! So I'm feeling in a family-love kind of mood. If you feel so inclined to be inspired by this (or you thrive on extra focus and opportunity), I would enjoy reading some familial tales this week... But it's not really my opinion that matters here - the judge this week has a couple great prompts for you too. Go check them out and get writing!
If you need to read the full version of the rules, go here. Otherwise, here's the short version:
1. Up to 500 words
2. Keep it clean (nothing rated R or above)
3. Start with the given first sentence.
4. Optional Special Challenge
5. Include Twitter/email, word count, Special Challenge accepted
6. The challenge is open for 24 hours on Tuesday EST
Oh, and feel free to change pronouns, punctuation, tense, and anything in brackets to fit the story/pov/tone. I'm not going to be TOO picky... Our judge however...
Our Judge today is S. Patrick Cunningham also known as @spcunningham. Check out his blog here. Read his winning tale from last week here!
Your first sentence for FINISH THAT THOUGHT #36 is:
[Her] stop was still several blocks away, but [she] stepped off the train anyway, just beating the closing doors.
Your SPECIAL CHALLENGE from the judge is:
Include at least one fantasy creature (chimera, leprechaun, talking animal, etc.).
AAAAAAAND WE'RE OFF!!!
