Welcome to a brand new week, everyone! This week I’m going to ,make an appointment to see a sleep specialist about insomnia, which is something that I’ve had for most of my life. It’s amazing how significantly lack of sleep can affect you. Anyway, I figured that this could make an interesting story challenge as well. So, today, I want you to write me a story about intoxication (either from substances or from sleep deprivation… did you know that after 4 days without sleep you start hallucinating?… I do). You know the rules. Take your subject and run with it. Write me a story of 1000 words or less and stay on topic. As before, if it’s in any way applicable, you should use this to try to develop your world a little more :).
Your Challenge: Write me a story about intoxication. This could be a story that focuses on the nature of intoxication, various kinds of intoxication, or the consequences of forgetfulness. Perhaps you want to write about an insomniac (like me), or perhaps you want to write about a consistent drunk or the possible results of drunkenness. You could focus on a story about a specific situation, or you could tell a broader story that gets into the depths of what intoxication is. In some way though, your story needs to have a strong focus on this concept.
