This challenge has ended!
I’ve read through a lot of stories on Ficly, and most of them seem to have an underlying “dark” theme. Wouldn’t it be nice to write something happier for a change?
For this challenge -
1) Come up with an idea that feels happy.
2) Write a story which is exactly three sentences long using this idea.
@Jim; Yep, no stories, one challenge, one comment, then POOF! Sad, it was a successful challenge too.
I think maybe Abhay forgot about us… sadface
I encourage those, who are worried about sentence structure, to read Bronte. I’ve read her (only) novel with one purpose in mind, I was fascinated by her “long sentences"".
They are not “long sentences”, but thoughts strung together in a frenetic, angst ridden way. It can give you a headache, but it’s worth practicing.
Now’s your chance.
“The ‘walk in’ was uttered with closed teeth, and expressed the sentiment,
‘Go to the Deuce:’ even the gate over which he leant manifested no
sympathising movement to the words; and I think that circumstance
determined me to accept the invitation: I felt interested in a man who seemed more exaggeratedly reserved than myself.”
It’s odd, but somehow writing a dark ficly is a lot easier. I’ve been meaning to put something in this challenge for days, but nothing is coming up.
I’d contest the idea that most of the stories on Ficly have dark undertones. A lot do, but I’m not sure that ‘most’ do. That said, I like the challenge, and three sentences is enough to create some fun ambiguities.
Looking forward to your entry, THX. I love the work you’ve put up on Ficly!
Great challenge. I shall have to give it some thought.
Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
