Well, we’re almost half way through the month of March! I suppose that’s a good thing, although this year has already thrown me on a roller-coaster a couple of times. Hopefully things are going well for you. I’ve got another scene challenge for you today, so here are the rules: I provide you with the beginning of a scene (from a phrase to two sentences) and you finish it. Try to keep your scene under five hundred words, and try to keep it in the same tone as the introduction. If I give a line that is very dark and depressing, then I don’t want to see a scene about a drunken monkey in a tutu…it just doesn’t fit. If I do give you a line about a drunken monkey in a tutu, then you should probably try for a funny scene.
Here is your scene: “Alex stared at the woman who had broken his heart, and then he said…”
You know what to do: finish the scene.
