standout1Well, Alayna had our first serious date day in awhile. I took the day off completely and we went out to eat, caught a couple of movies (Big Hero 6 and Insurgent–both were pretty good), and we spent some time just wandering around enjoying ourselves… …I also got lost trying to find one of the theaters, and Alayna fell asleep in the car, so overall it makes for a good story :P. 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: “Jack, I’ve got a proposition for you…”

        1. Saskia, I agree that for your writing in English the primary thing you need to work on right now is your grammar. English grammar is weird though, it’s hard for native speakers as well.

          1. I’m not sure what you mean by ‘depression’ here. Do you mean that grammar makes you sad? Or that grammar is something that stands below writing?

          2. I’m not happy with this it’s no fiction but wath i manny years ago maybee 15 years and i told it nobody only my husband nobody knows that this is happend too me. My husband wash shocked when he heard from this. Greatings Saskia Borst
