tf2-firestarterHave you ever made one of those decisions that you just couldn’t quite regret, even though you really wanted to? Yesterday I spent my entire day grading papers and reading articles on Natural Law Theory. I finally finish for the day, and sit down to dinner, and decide that I’ve got the time and energy to get through one more article, it couldn’t be too bad right? So, at about 6:30, I started into my last ‘extra’ reading for the day… what did I get? …Thirty pages of Aquinian metaphysics. Ontology, Epistemology, Reason/Will, Mind/Body, etc… this article touched on a lot of different subjects in its extended critique of modern Natural Law theory and comparisons to Aquinas’ own metaphysical arguments. Ultimately, I’m glad I read the article, but seriously… Anyway, it’s Wednesday, which means that you get a scene challenge. If you can’t remember the rules, I’ll provide them: 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 150 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: “I didn’t start the fire, but…”
