Back in May I bought one of the best purchases I’ve ever made, my Write The Story notebook. Since then, I’ve been off and on with writing in it, but I do my best to write in it as many times as I get the chance to. Here are the next seven stories I got to write:
1. Friends on the town
This is one of the weirdest, funniest (to me anyway), and fun stories I have ever written. It’s ridiculous, but I had fun writing it and that’s all that matters.
2. Today at the Amusement Park
This is another ridiculous story that was crazy fun to write. A hangover-esque scenario at an amusement park kinda made me wish they made another movie set at an amusement park.
3. A Day in the Life (of your average assassin)
Another fun story to write in a different way. You can tell I was really enjoying it because I used every nuke and cranny of space to write it. It was fun to write a character that has a very normal life, but is also an assassin and I want to read a book like this someday. It would be so cool!
4. The Last Moment of Childhood
It’s not that I didn’t like writing this, but it is kinda based off of what my own last moment of childhood was and the lady that told me I looked too old to be trick or treating wasn’t mean about it at all. But, it left me feeling like a kid in a adults body or at least a body much older then my true age and I didn’t like the feeling. It made me feel like I wasn’t allowed to enjoy childish things anymore. So, it’s a sad spot for me.
5. Wrapping Up a Business Trip
This was a story that I wasn’t totally feeling as I was writing it, but the point of this is not just the fun, but a challenge to how creative I can get with a prompt I’m given. I struggled a bit with this and I was just glad to finish it, but I feel I got something decent out of it anyway.
6. A Couple on a Cruise
This one is straight up a romantic fantasy. I wish someone felt this deeply about me. A really cute and well thought out date/outing resulting in a proposal after several years of dating and experiencing falling in love. Being as into that person as I ever was and them feeling the same way. Maybe someday. A girl can dream.
7. Unsolved Mystery
This story made me feel kinda sad to write because it’s kinda how unsolvable murder cases feel like to me. I didn’t even give my fictional victim a name. Which was something I was mindful of while writing, because in a lot of cold cases I feel like the victims do become that way nameless or at least like the name doesn’t matter. Especially when someone’s story gets run a lot. They become known only for having been murdered and it’s like the life they lived no longer matters.
Well… that got a little deep at the end there. Anyway, I’m excited to continue writing in this and see what comes from it.
Thank you all for reading! Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below.
