Do you enjoy quick and easy challenges that take your mind off what you’re doing for a bit?
I’m starting to enjoy these exercises more and more. They get your imagination working and sometimes that can even help with what you were doing prior to the challenge.
Here’s a brief practice for today. Finish the last sentence in the following paragraph. You can even add more, if you wish. Make it a mystery, a romance, a sci-fi or any genre you’d like.
Stella reached for the wooden box and saw that her right hand was shaking. Taking a deep breath to steady her nerves, she touched the tiny jewels embedded on top. Holding her breath, she slowly raised the lid. It was good that the box still rested on the table otherwise Stella would have surely dropped it when she saw …………….....
Okay, what did Stella see? Was it good/bad, shocking/delightful, scary/funny, or something totally out of this world?
One reason I enjoy these type challenges is that we all see such diverse elements from the same sentences.
Sorry for the short and crazy post today but I put this together quickly last night as we once again had severe thunderstorms headed our way. I wasn’t sure we’d have power or not. Last week we lost power twice during the storms. I just wanted to get something scheduled before hand. Hope you enjoy it and find it fun.
So give a go at the sentence and see what your imagination comes up with. As for my take. It was good that the box still rested on the table otherwise Stella would have surely dropped it when she saw a note had replaced the last piece of German Chocolate Cake. In bold letters, the note warned .. NO CHEATING ON YOUR DIET!!
Do you enjoy exercises like this? Do you like seeing what others come up with that didn’t even cross your mind?
