More Mud

A violent piercing crack wakes us!

I can see that my minions are taking life for granted. A dangerous mudslide with a bit of isolation and hunger should spark more gratitude.

They have groceries galore and light at the flick of a switch. And their distraction devices, I’ll make sure that they have to talk to each other.

  1. Decide on one POV. It can be the original, or it can be the experimental one.
  2. Reduce the story to 59-words.
  3. For a technical challenge, incorporate a nugget from your opposite 99-word POV (and bold that nugget to illustrate it).

NB Think I have found a solution to my wifi depravation … I may be reading and commenting once again!  Phew this one way communication is just not me.

  1. I think it’s difficult to write short stories or stories with a small word limit. You did a great job reducing your story! It still has vivid images and good emotion and a nice ending twist…yay they have to talk to each other. 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…yay on finding the solution!
