Writing Exercise: Single-Syllable Short

by ajanefountas

Write a 250-word short-short story, of the fiction or nonfiction variety, using only single-syllable words. Take on an abstract subject — such as love, freedom, or truth — but use concrete language to bring this abstraction to life. Concrete = palpable: bread, jump, rock, flip.

Some starting points, should you need one:
A memory from childhood.
These words: Love is a drug.
Your day yesterday.

Remember to use single-syllable words only and to edit your story down to exactly 250 words. And to have fun!

Please post your single-syllable short-short in the comments section. Thank you.
