This is a specific challenge. You must use this sentence as the beginning sentence of your story....AND as the ending sentence. You can do anything in between...


***

She woke up in an unfamiliar room and wondered how she got here.

good luck!

This sounds so familiar, that one would assume it would be an easy challenge for me. But yanno? I don't WANNA remember how she got there!

I've been accused of "selective memory loss" before.

But then, of course, it's ALL fiction, right?

I might. I just might, Shar. But oh my...and YOU know why I'm shaking my head and laughing.

Posted in MC?

(and I'm not promising anything)

Karen I'm sure whatever you write will be great.

Karen...I came back to say that I'd like to see something different. Writing what is safe (something you know about) is ok. Buy why not stretch the muscle a bit. Make this story different. Drunk or drugged out? Sure but that's too EASY...do something harder!

I realize you didn't mean to cause offense by that Sharon. So I'll just point out my last few posts WERE different from what you might consider "my norm".

Besides, it's half-written anyway.

So you're stuck with me.

You know I don't mean any offense Karen! And I know your last few were different. And they were amazing!

Sorry!! I'll stop now.

I posted my story. And I must tell you it changed a couple of times in the telling. At first I thought the woman should wake up with blood all over her. Then I changed my mind and thought maybe she should be an alien. But after I wrote a half a pay, she turned into something else (I had to go back and edit some of the beginning). Sigh.

I hope it's ok?

Shar? Hey....I just wanted to say I know you didn't mean anything by it. And I want to read yours so badly, but whew! That challenge is proving to be something else. I filled half a marble notebook and I'm not even near my conclusion yet! (and I know, it will type up much smaller, but still...)

You got me goin' lady! I'll try to work on it more today. (I was determined to write something that was actually "story" length. And now? I can't stop. )

I don't know what prose is? If I did, I might just give this a try.
