STORY STARTER CHALLENGE #3 – 3/5/19


STORY STARTER CHALLENGE #3

Today’s prompt is: “Heavens to betsy, why’d you do that?

 

Rules from:

THE HAUNTED WORDSMITH

Welcome to the new Story Starter Challenge!

Every day I will post a new sentence prompt. Use the provided sentence somewhere in your post. It can be a starting sentence, closing sentence, anything you choose. Read it and see where the sentence takes you.

Have Fun!

The Dinner

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

“Heavens to Betsy, why’d you do that?”

I turned to look at my husband John and grinned.

“What’s your problem, John?”

“You tossed the dinner out the door into the backyard and our company is about to arrive through the back door.”

“Just a subtle hint that there will be no dinner here tonight, my dear.”

Twittering Tales #126 by Kat – 3/5/19


 

Inspired by Kat at Twittering Tales

Donna searched for a sign for the scavenger hunt. She was in an industrial park.

She found a sign that said, “THIS IS IT!” and pointed down to a box.

She heard a yip!

Opening the box, she found a puppy. What can you expect from a scavenger hunt put on by the SPCA?

**********263 characters************

Rules from Kat:

Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.

A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at charactercountonline.com.

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing a new prompt. And if for some reason I missed your entry in the Roundup, as I have occasionally done, please let me know. I want to be sure to include your tale.

Finally, have fun!

And REMEMBER…you have 280 characters (spaces and punctuation included), to tell your tale…and a week to do it. I can’t wait to see what you create this week.
