As you will know if you’ve read my writing challenges, I’m a fan of the Writing Challenge app for some daily inspiration. So just to offer you a taster to inspire you today…your mission is to create a story from the following words or phrases. You have one minute per word or phrase…Go!
Start writing a story that starts with this dialogue: Everyone has a double somewhere
Include this sentence: They didn’t come to the rescue
Add a character who: Is angry
Add a character who: Has many secrets
Here are my four minutes of writing. Don’t forget that you don’t edit it…it’s just about writing.
Everyone has a double somewhere. I’ve met mine. She wasn’t impressed. I thought my father had something to hide. I could have been looking in a mirror. Why couldn’t she see it? Everyone else could. We were talking in a bar and babble away about how much we looked alike while she looked more and more uncomfortable. My friends – hah. Some friends they were. They didn’t come to the rescue. I wanted to form an immediate bond and be best friends forever. Nobody stopped me to tell me that I was starting to sound like a stalker. I started to feel angry at her. She could be my long lost relative and she was clearly not interested.
I was taken away to a dark corner of the bar to where we’d left our drinks. I felt drawn to her. She must be a cousin or sister or something. She obviously had things to hide. I never saw her again after that night in the bar. I can’t even remember her name.
