Like most writers, I’m struggling with this evil known as writer’s block. To me, it’s this creature that attaches itself to my head and sucks out all my creative juices. I need to get rid of it as soon as possible.
That’s when I found this little site called oneword.com. Basically, the object of the site is to write a micro-mini story using 100 words on a particular word. Plus, you only have 60 seconds to write. So for today’s word, SLIP, I wrote the following (which will be reposted on Stories in 5 Minutes):
I had to give them the slip.
I had ran away from them, knowing that they were going to come after me. So what if they don’t like it if I’m a tattletale? They had no right to do what they did. I hope that my mom would go easy on my brother; it’s not easy being a disabled boy in high school.
Well, this story makes you wonder if the narrator is going to get away from the people who are pursuing him/her and if the narrator is going to inform an adult as to what the other people were doing. It might become a short story in the future.
And yes, you’re welcome to buy my book Harry Moffer & the Dumbest Story Ever on Amazon.com.
