terribleminds flash fiction challenge

Chuck Wendig’s blog has provided a lot of the motivation to start writing again. I found it originally by using StumbleUpon, killing time while I was supposed to be writing my dissertation. If you haven’t been to his site yet, check it out. He’s funny, profane, and full of interesting words- in both his fiction and writing advice.


The challenge this week is as follows:


“This week’s challenge is deceptively simple.

I want you to write one amazing sentence. A sentence that is part of a larger story but is not itself a story — a sentence that makes you want to read forward and backward, but is itself a capture of the tale. Just a slice.

(And then, next week, folks will choose a sentence to build an entire story around.)

Write one sentence — no more than 100 words, please.

Drop it in the comments below.

And that’s all you need to do.

But make that sentence as amazing as you can make it.



I will post my sentence back here, as well as in his comments. Let the musing begin.
