I follow Ginny Wienhardt's Fiction Writing site (http://fictionwriting.about.com/) and one of her challenges this week was to write a 100 word story composed of only one-syllable words. I took my friday flash poem and used it as the basis. It was really difficult to write a story using only one-syllable words - try it if you want. Here is what I ended up with:
She’d grasped hold of it last night. It had been spot on. But in a flash it was gone to who knows where. It should have been dealt with when she thought of it then. But now it will have to wait, ‘cause it’s just not there. Where did it go, that flash in the night? To a dark space in her brain, to a blank slate in her mind, or to the void in her soul? She does not know where they go or how to call them back, these thoughts that fly in and out of her head.
