I started working with taking notes for the story and the approach flowed into being the story about a little girl at the library alone who had lost a necklace. I loved writing it, it just came naturally. I don’t know if the story is something to do more with, but the experience itself was enough even if nothing else comes of it. Thanks.
Brilliant prompt again. This got my creative juices going creating a story about a lost document that cleared a family of shame that had blighted many generations of a family.
Today’s story turned out really weird and wonderful! I had fun thinking of all the possibilities! You can read about my process here: https://tammysreadinglife.wordpress.com/2021/05/06/day-5-story-challenge/
This was a fun one! Simple, but effective. I wrote my story entirely in dialogue. Good exercise 🙂
That is always interesting to play with dialogue! Fun!
I asked myself what would I most miss if I lost it? As a collector of antiquities, I thought of Nefertiti’s ring! So I wrote a story on how I ‘found’ it… and then how I lost it. It was great fun.
I really enjoyed this prompt
I wrote a short one for this prompt called “sword”. It’s about losing a pen.
Sounds like a good one to me 😊
