Write A 100-Word Story. Or…The Trees.



The trees in the parks grew tall and straight and green.

People sat under them, appreciating the leafy shade they provided from the hot sun as they ate their lunches and read their books and their newspapers

But there wasn’t enough paper to keep getting all of these things printed. “We must have our news”, the people said, “We must have our books and our magazines.”

So the trees were cut down and pulped and there were no leafy green spaces at lunchtime anymore.

And the people wrote letters to the newspapers to complain about the trees being cut down.
