Well, it is Wednesday again, which means it’s time for another scene challenge. So, without further adeu, the rules, and then your challenge: 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.
Your scene: ‘The frazzled man stared at the computer scene, absently pulling the hair on one side of his head. “What do you mean the page doesn’t exist?” He muttered to himself, “This is the address they gave me.”
Well, do what you please with this. I have to admit that its culled from a reasonably common work-related event I’ve run into lately, but I’m guessing some of you can be more creative!
