So, here's the deal. I'm challenging everyone to write a sentence in the comments section that feels as complete as a story. This is not a contest, but what I'd love to see is a sentence that really captures where you are in your writing right now, in terms of voice, genre, tone, subject matter, etc. Make this YOUR sentence, something that could be identified as yours in a lineup. You're not trying to beat anyone else, but rather you're displaying your "orange" amid all the other "apples," if that makes sense. We have a lot of new followers lately, and I'd love to see what y'all write.
I'll rotate some of the sentences to the front side of this post throughout the day as (and if) they come in.
And, I'll be posting mine...as soon as I think of it.
Here's one from Jabez:
Six strong men circled the last tree to guard it, but one by one they fell to the axes of the gathering mob and finally so did the tree, and it was cut and split and the pieces piled high to make a pyre for my little girl, who’d wanted nothing but to live, and when the embers died and the ashes scattered I looked out at the blasted land and cried for the world I destroyed for her sake.
As she sat there in her office chair the morning sun glowed as social media her led from website to website, her mind and thoughts traveled miles before she realized the sun was gone and now the moon was jeering her loss of a day.
Even the 'Crimson Mountain', looming above all his fellow dragons, stood anxiously in the shadow of Theikuv; only the sky dared look down upon the mountain, and for that indignity it had received a vicious thrust from a jagged peak.
