Sounds fantastic! Would love to read your rabbit stories!
Love rewriting and finding new story angles — it’s like looking at cut gems or hidden corridors in buildings! Because I’m pressed for time, I chose one of the shortest stories I’ve ever written — I hope these are stories, haha — one of the most intriguing prompts this year!
I loved the challenge of approaching an existing story from another angle. I’ve accepted challenges like this previously and I find it accelerates my understanding of my characters and setting so it is a really useful exercise. Thank you again Julie.
Day 30! OH MY!
I didn’t feel like using the prompt today. I have a story that I have been wanting to tell since last September so that is what I wrote today.
I also reflected on some of the questions Julie posed yesterday in the podcast.
I wrote ROLEX based on one of the short 6-word stories I did on May 9th called “Rabbit”. This time I wrote it from the point of view of the rabbit, who has been given super powers in the lab. He fakes his own death to be transported and disposed of. He escapes the van in spectacular fashion and plans to take over the world with his fellow enhanced rabbits and other animals.
