So, today’s prompt was to write a story about a character who’s done something they feel shame for OR a story with 140 characters (the ones we type, not the walking/talking kind).
Seeing as I could neither come up with a good idea for the first prompt, nor reduce a story I wrote to under 30 words (which is what 140 characters would mean) for the second one, I decided to be a non-conformist (once more) and went with a prompt of my own: Write a story of up to 100 words.
So, here you have it (this probably sucks balls, but shhhh, we’ll keep it between us)
P.S. I’ll continue trying to come up with a 140-character story and will post if I am successful.
She says dreams are for the hopeless.
I say they’re for the hopeful.
She moves out. Marries. Leaves her job.
I travel. Adopt a cat named Einstein.
We meet for coffee.
She drinks her latte in hurried gulps.
She has to be home soon.
She says life is a struggle.
I say it’s a discovery.
She says, you don’t understand.
I say, I do. Life is what you make of it.
