It’s always tempting to get excited on Day 1 and launch in to a really long, involved story. Or maybe your story-telling muscles are out of shape and you end up writing a long, rambling story because you don’t have a framework and the story runs away from you.
Either way, biting off more than you can chew on May 1 can be a bit discouraging. Especially when you wake on May 2, work the cramp out of your fingers and your brain…and realise you have to do it all again!
So today’s prompt is a simple one:
Write a story of not more than 1,200 words.
That gives you 100 words for intro, 100 words for summing-up (or for the twist) and 1000 words to play with in the middle. (Hint: something should have happened by the time you’re 400 words in, to make me want to keep reading.)
That’s it. Happy writing, and see you tomorrow!Why not copy and share this prompt with your friends? Today's StoryADay May prompt is here: http://storyaday.org If you would like to be the Guest Prompter, click here.
