Since I know we're all busy today, our Short & Sweet will be really short and sweet.
List three words that make you think of either Memorial Day or summer.
Using one or more of your own three words, or someone else's that are listed in the comments, or some of the samples listed below as inspiration, give us the first sentence or two of a story and/or a one or two sentence idea for a story.
Here are a few sample words you can use for inspiration if you can't think of any:
red, white, and blue
Here is a sample opening sentence or two:
"Just keep digging," said Jamie, dumping out another pail of sand. "We're almost there!"
Here is a sample idea for a story:
Ari plans a special welcome for his mother returning from active duty in the armed forces.
Now you go! Don't over think it - remember, this is supposed to be short and sweet! :) Share your words and your opening and/or story idea. maybe it will give you a great idea for a story, or maybe someone else's words, opening sentence or story idea will inspire a great story!
Have fun! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
And have a wonderful Memorial Day!
