FINISH THAT THOUGHT #44
WOOHOO! Let's go for another round!!! I'm excited to read what you come up with this week. I'm tearing through my own edits (and by 'tearing though' I mean glacially - I am slowly and inexorably moving toward my goal one millimeter at a time...in case anyone was wondering on my progress which I haven't updated in way too long...), so if you've noticed I haven't written much recently, now you know why. You've satisfied your curiosity, and now you can go write. So do it! Off you go! Write like the wind! (Why are you still reading this?) (I said go...) (really?) (still?) Hee Hee Hee. I'll stop talking now. :)
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 Julie Gold. Read her winning tale from last week here!
Your first sentence for FINISH THAT THOUGHT #44 is:
The notion was irrational, but when I became conscious of the fact it was already too late.
Your SPECIAL CHALLENGE from the judge is:
Stars, space ships, planets, aliens, robots, fantasy. (I'm going to clarify that you need to use at least three of these things. You can certainly use all if you would like, but you can use three and qualify for the special challenge. Thanks!)
AAAAAAAND WE'RE OFF!!!
