Take the 10-Word Story Challenge: Dreams


The subject this week is “dreams”.

I am rabid about writing challenges.  They pull me out of my comfort zone and make me explore different facets of my muse.  There are a lot of writers out there reading this right now and I challenge you to write a 10-word story.  Here are the rules:

  • It will be exactly 10 words.
  • It will be a complete story with a beginning, a middle and an ending.
  • It will be in context to the subject each week.
  • A new challenge will be posted every Wednesday and the deadline will be the following Tuesday at midnight wherever you’re living.
  • Post your 10-word story in the comments of each week’s challenge and feel free to comment on each other’s.

If you are a blogger, post your entry on your blog and reference The 10-Word Challenge.  Also, be sure to include a link to your blog when you post your story in the comments.  Let’s have some fun!  Spread the “word”.

My 10-Word Story entry this week is:

He awoke into a dream of waking and fell asleep.

Irony Had a Gun


Here is my entry for this week’s 100-Word Challenge for Adults.  The prompt is:

….The flame flickered before….

A rock fell.  Was that a footstep?  My heart hammered like fists against my ribs.  The cave seemed my escape.  No way he saw me duck in here.  Right?

The fire was the mistake.  A dead giveaway.  Don’t bother excusing the pun.  I’m afraid of the dark.

No one messed with Dirty O’Neill and lived to tell about it.  I wouldn’t be breaking that trend either.  All for 50 grand.  Stupid.

The flame flickered before the shadow appeared.  It had a gun.  No time.  I threw myself on the flames.  Pitch black.  Fear’s the only hope and the irony burns.
