Two options today: write a story in the form of a list, OR use this list of words in your story: gallery, contemplated, identity, point, behind, tastes, followed, forty, like, generations.

Have been trying to catch up for the last 27 days! Posting my sketches because I basically made it! hehe! Woohoo!
Day 23! https://xenocandela.wordpress.com/2021/05/23/options-for-today/
This list story features a writer making a list of things TO DO IN CASE OF REJECTION. It was fun to write, and is made up of only 25 items.
I wrote an outline of a short story using the suggested words. I do enjoy using ‘lists’ as an inspiration for short stories . I was inspired by you Julie, the first time that I joined in Story a day May challenge.
I often fall back on this technique. Thank you 🙏
My story today was a series of to-do lists from a college student. Every day, she writes “Call Grandma,” but never checks it off. The last day, her list says: “Order plane ticket, Call professors, Pack, Call Grandpa.”
Love making lists so this was a great prompt for us!
The early writing bug bit me this morning. I do love a good list story…or one generated from a list of words. I used the list of words but will probably come back to a list story later today.
I do love Jennifer Egan’s To Do List story. I am always looking for good examples though.
Here are my reflections: https://tammysreadinglife.wordpress.com/2021/05/23/day-23-storyadaymay2021/
