Something a Little Bit Different for Sunday: Emily “Winner” in One-Sentence Story Challenge

This is one that can’t really be classified — is the story horror, romance, fantasy?  It doesn’t even have a title, though its protagonist’s name is Emily so probably that will have to do.  After all it was only allowed to be one sentence long.

So Emily (we’ll say) was published today as the “Winner of April 6th Story Prompt Challenge” on Carrie Ann Golden’s blog, A WRITER & HER SENTIMENTAL MUSE.  Full disclosure:  Emily may have had an advantage since she seems to have been the only entrant.  But technicalities, technicalities, what’s important was the story had to be based on the picture to the right, and be only a sentence long.  Or, from the official rules (in fact, the only official rule):  “Since this is a one-line story, there is no limit on the word count; however, be creative and use your words and punctuation wisely.”

To read it for yourself, press here.  And as for the competition, since she was an early entrant perhaps Emily (or her circumstances) frightened potential rival contestants away.

    for some odd reason, “press here” only took me to the Word Press sign in page –which I did but I knew not where to go. plus thought I had to respond to a survey about Word Press. So I guess I’ll never know Emily’s wonderful one sentence story. Frankly that was such a hoot — only one submission and so that one won. Takes the cake for crazy!
