It’s been a reallyyyyyyy long time. The blog hasn’t been getting much activity for a while.
So I wanted to motivate people when writing, no matter if it’s a blog or just writing.
I, and many other Storybird users have had a long battle with writer’s block. I get an amazing general idea, but when I try to put it down, it doesn’t write. It doesn’t work. I don’t know why we can’t think of things to write, and I don’t know how to cure it. So my form of inspiration is a challenge for all readers and Storybird members out there.
I’ll give you the One Sentence To Spark You. And you guys can use it, and write down one paragraph, no matter how good or simple it is. It may give you an idea! Good luck battling writer’s block, every one. I know it can be hard, but if we all give each other ideas, we can all fight it together,
Today’s OSTSY is:
Imagine if Storybird didn’t exist.
Let’s do this!!!!
“‘Kay, let’s do this thing!” The cheerleader shrilled to her teammates. “We can win the cheer championships like this!” She snapped her fingers.
You can write anything to make this story complete, so go, go, GO!! 🙂
I think this is the fourth one. I think. But let’s get to it!!
Start your story with, “What’s the matter kid? Scared?” The bully sneered, shoving his hand around me, his hand slamming the lockers.
I’ll give you an excerpt of my story from the sentence.
“What’s the matter kid? Scared?” The bully sneered, shoving his hand around me, his hand slamming the lockers.
“No. But you aren’t taking my lunch money,” I stammered, my fists clenching the five dollars. His friends grinned.
“Whaddya mean? You know you’re going to Swirlietown if you don’t COUGH IT UP.” The bully said. I had handed over the money five times before, but I was determined not to ‘cough it up.’
“I need to eat.”
“So do I, punk.” The big guy’s nostrils flared.
I handed him the bill and he let me run off into the bathroom, my face red. I couldn’t believe I had let him take over my life again.
This is the third sentence for you! It’ll be very easy to create a story if you play volleyball, which I do. But if you don’t, it’s okay. You can totally write a story with no experience too.
“The score is 10-7!” The ref called out, causing my hands to sweat, knowing I was 1 point from losing the most important volleyball game of the season.
Sorry for not being active, the first week of middle school is pretty stressful. In fact, I’m only able to post this one because it’s Friday. TGIF!!!
Okay, anyway, this next sentence should spark a new story in you. Just let the world spill, okay?? It doesn’t matter if it’s not quite exactly what you want.
“I rubbed my sweaty palms on my pant leg. I was next in the competition, and my heart was beating so quickly I could swear everyone heard it.”
Ready… Set… WRITE!!!
This is what I’m going to do a few times a week: just a sentence that you should elaborate on. It’s like @Hostine ‘s picture stories, except I have sentences to spark your imagination!
Here’s the sentence.
I thundered down the track, my legs stretching out and my arms flailing behind me and my coach yelling, “Go! Go!”
Why don’t you post in the comments your short story, or make a Storybird about it?
