These last eleven days have been kind of a disaster.
Well, that’s not true. I got a story for the fourth, though it was a shambles – it was a kind of back story for one of my characters, but I didn’t like it. Then I started one for the fifth using the picture prompt idea on the website, but it wasn’t really going anywhere and I will admit, I gave up.
After that, I just fell into a hole of revision and assignments – but with my final exam taking place this Wednesday, I’m preparing to get back in this challenge again. Sure, I won’t end the month with 31 finished pieces (probably), but if I can even get 10, that’s likely more than I would have written.
So, I’m off to see what I can do with this ‘fish out of water‘ prompt today. How’s everyone else getting on with this challenge?
I wrote this yesterday, but didn’t get around to posting it because my day was ridiculously busy. I cannot wait until exams are over; wayyyy too much work right now. (Hence why I still have to write my story for today… and then post it later, hopefully!)
Still, this story is 90% dialogue. I was thinking it might be confusing, but it shouldn’t be; there’s only two characters!

Yay, I’ve managed two days running now! I didn’t use the prompt again today (I’m never good at writing stories out of memories), since I definitely have never seen this happen before in my life. Also, it’s not fantasy, so that’s new! (I am worried it’s more a scene than a story, however. Sigh…)

I tried, I tried so hard to make the prompt length of 1,200 words today… and I ended up exceeding it by 99 -_-. Still, if you don’t read the last section, it comes out as under so you could… do that, maybe? Anyway, here goes, more or less my first short story:
