Pat provided the following statement:
He has edged out his handsome rival and has won her heart. And on the very day he's prepared to ask for her hand in marriage, he is awarded his nationally prestigious dream assignment: A quest that will take him to the outer reaches of the known world for the next 5 years. Alone.
Your challenge this week is to expand upon that thought
OR use the three words below
to write a short story
Stories must meet the criteria below and be submitted before 3:00 pm PST on 6/28/2012
(If using the expanded statement option, she may be substituted for he)
Many of you will recognize Pat's name. He's the founder of Clever Fiction and this awesome website design is his brainchild. To say he's good at what he does is an understatement and I hope you'll visit his Arizona Video Company and see for yourself. If nothing else, watch a couple of his Book Trailers -- though he offers so much more.
Pat is also a published author with stories included in both Whispered Beginnings and Time Out On A Roller Coaster and, of course, his own Christian Fiction novel, Parting Ways - sporting a cover he designed himself!
Use all the elements of the writing prompt above.
Send your story to CleverFiction@gmail.com
or via the form on the Submit Stories page
To make uploading easier, please format your single-spaced, block style story like this:
By YourName ( Winner~Leaving~Alone) <--- this reminds readers of the prompt.
That's it! No page numbers, notes, etc.,
Due by 3:00 PM (PST) on Thursday, 06-28-12.
Soon after your story is submitted, your name and story title will appear below as links to your short story page. There is no guarantee that your story will be posted to this website. If it is posted, your story page will have a place for comments and feedback. Feel free to share a link to your page with your friends and family to read and comment. And don't forget to read and comment on other stories. We all like to hear what we've done well or where we might improve (offered with a little honey, of course).
