Weekly Writing Challenge 20: Write a 5-Sentence Story About This Scene

Welcome to this week’s writing challenge prompt!

Sometimes the best way to say something is with very few words.

Think of stories like Baby shoes. For Sale. Never Worn.

You know the whole story by those six words. We also have favorite lines from our favorite books that convey emotional depth or core motivations behind what they’re doing. They grab our hearts and stick in our minds.

Get inspired by instantaneous moments like that by writing a five-sentence story about the picture above. You may never share this story with anyone or try to publish it—that’s okay! It’s healthy to write things just for yourself. Practice using the most essential words to see if you can tell a complete narrative in such a limited space.
