Second Campaigner Challenge

Yikes, this one hurt my brain a little bit. I like things simple, so I didn't do anything too complicated. For mine, I picked:

Write a story/poem in five sentences, each sentence based on one of the prompts.

And I also wrote in third person, which I never do!  Here goes:

The blood gushed from the woman's leg; Keifer shook wet hair from his eyes and stared up at the moon where not two days ago a concrete bridge had blocked the view. The phantasmal explosion had come without warning, searing through the sky like an angry star with a death wish. He shuddered, watching the children dig through the resulting debris. Two days ago those same children had been playing soccer on this very street. The woman moaned and grappled at her leg, and Keifer wished he could reverse it somehow, that he could capture the explosion before it happened.

First sentence: Prompt 1

Two people are sitting together under the remains of a concrete bridge. Their backs are against a rusted bridge support. One person's leg is cut. The other person has wet hair.


Second sentence: Prompt 5



Third sentence: Prompt 4



Fourth sentence: Prompt 2



Fifth sentence: Prompt 3

It was a bigger challenge this time, especially the one prompt per sentence one, but you did great with it. I loved the "angry star with a death wish" part. Awesome job!

You used the prompts really well! Great job!

Jessica Salyer said...

Great job. It flowed nicely, which must of been hard to do with the prompts.

Jocelyn Rish said...

You worked those in really smoothly! I especially liked the way you used the "pear" prompt to have Keifer wish he could have contained the explosion.

Jennifer said...

Wow, that story packs a punch! You fit a lot in there and in such a short space, way better than mine. Good luck this round!

Also, I tagged you in the Write Campaign 7 Meme that's been going around on my blog. Fun writing times!
