the single line story challenge

Hello! Welcome BACK to my blog ๐Ÿคฉ I’M SO EXCITEEEEEEEDDDD

I came up with a super fun challenge today!

So there are so many genres I never write in. Or have never written in at all. It inspired me to write a post with some short stories that are out of my usual writing style!

When I realized I could turn it into a fun writing challenge for all of us… the idea got even MORE exciting ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‚

So what’s the challenge exactly? To write 5 single line stories within five different genres! Then challenge your writing friends to do the same heeh

Let’s go!

Also I’ll be participating to kick off this awesome thing because it’s too fun to pass up

my stories:

Thriller: “Clutching the gun with whitened fingers, she edged around the corner.”

Romance: “”I didn’t know you were falling in love with me that hard,” he chuckled, helping her stand back up.”

Sci-fi: “Using one of its seven – no, was it eight? – fingers, the alien selected me out of the vast crowd, causing me to tremble.”

Mystery: “Stooping and collecting the drinking glass, the inspector said behind him, “Did you really just touch our only evidence?””

Western: “Flicking the gun out of his holster, Chad grinned and said, “Not today, kid.””
