I saw this on another forum and thought it looked really interesting. Thought we might give it a try. Here is my contribution.

The world ended spectacularly. He checked His watch. Time to start again.

That persistant buzzing told of the dangers. When it paused, a crimson slap ensured silence.

That's harder than it looks. Perhaps even moreso when trying to follow the "Show, Don't Tell" rule. Don't you hate killing a mosquito on your arm only to then find out by the splattered blood, that she has already bitten you and it's too late for your killing her to do any good?

He came. They waited. Patiently he entered. In the end, only one left.

Was it worth it? He watched her weep through narrowed eyes and decided: "Hell, yes. . . ."

Well, all I can do at this point is copy the magnificent words of Baldrick, from the BBC series "Black Adder." Although he used 18 words, it was so brilliant I had to put it down here:

"Once upon a time, there was a lovely little sausage called 'Baldrick', and it lived happily ever after."

Man, that is great stuff!!

She wriggled through the basement window, found the .45. He would never hurt her again.

smile.gif I love this! I recently purchased a helpful little book entitled "The Writer's Block" (it is quite literally a 3x3x3 block!) I recommend it to anyone stuck on ideas they can't wrap up or come up with. I've completely remedied my writer's block with it and have finished the first drafts of several short stories (which, yes, I plan to post here!)

"Baby, let's do it with the light on" George said "No way! You're a man?"

George was tired of kicking the cat. Now Rather is gone. He enjoys the news.

Sheriff Wiggins fell as the outlaw's bullet pierced his heart, fading stars his last vision.

"A rose is a rose is a rose" Gertrude Stein arose, then died.

Oblivion, that's all he'd hoped for after she died. Now he faces continuity alone.

In the light of the morning sun, the wolf’s fur seemed to fade away.

Light flashed on steel, quickly dulled by a red smear. He went back to work.

"What is the end of all things?", I thought. "Cause every thing has an end..."
