Do you like your job? I hope you do. I love my job (at least, most of the time I love my job). I get to make a significant impact on people’s lives, or so I tell myself. I have no doubt that some of my students would argue that it’s been a negative impact, but I think most of them come out of the class having benefited in some way. Anyway, I have a scene challenge for you. Anyway, if you don’t already know the rules: I give you a prompt and you write a scene off of 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 prompt: “I’d never seen anything like it…”
