You always derided my acting classes as a waste of time, and I’ll admit, my ‘happy bride’ role was unconvincing.

But my ‘surprise’ and ‘grief’ when the police told me about your accident?


Three Sentence Story – Flash Fiction.

A quick challenge issued by Chuck Wendig on his blog TerribleMinds. Chuck is giving quick challenges this month as many folks are deep in NaNoWriMo:

It means I want you to write a single story in three sentences. The shorter those sentences are, the better. Remember: a story has a beginning, a middle, and an end.

It is not merely a vignette — not simply a snapshot in time.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

My name is Kristian Thoroughgood, alternately known as KT to my friends, or @WildBilbo on twitter. As of August 2015, I am forty years old. Australian. My blog is intended to be both a place for me to polish my creative writing muscles (not a double entendre) and for others to read and comment on my musings. Expect short stories, articles, essays and other brain dumps. My opinions are my own, and whilst I take care to be at least moderately informed about any topic I speak or write about, these opinions are subject to rapid change in the face of passionate arguments and greater evidence. Please note - on my blog, Evidence beats Passion.
