I hope that everyone’s having a productive week so far! I know mine has been pretty fantastic. I would like to say something pithy and interesting here, but right now allergies have me sneezing my head off, so that isn’t really an option. Thinking is a little difficult at the moment. I have been working on a new fiction piece lately… sort of. It’s interesting. I haven’t decided what exactly I’m going to try to do with it yet, so I don’t want to give too many details. Anyway, it’s time for another scene challenge so if you can’t remember the rules, here you go: I provide you with specific rules for how to write a particular scene. 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 rules: You task this week is to write a scene of at least 300 words that is all one sentence. If you’ve been following the blog then you’ve seen this challenge before. Remember to make sure that the scene is grammatically correct, and that it flows well. Again, you might want to give it to a grammar nazi after you finish to make sure that your grammar is solid. Your cue: “They say that the first day is always the hardest…”
