Ten-Word Story Challenge

Let your mind go wild

I recently found this writing challenge by Sheri Jacobs. Here are seven stories with ten words each.

  • The screen was blank until Brad filled it with words.
  • The band rehearsed for a month. Their show sold out.
  • Jocks didn’t date nerds. Ben and Jill became the exception.
