Today is the first day of July’s Camp NaNoWriMo and I’m pretty pumped. Although I’m focusing on writing a nonfiction project this month, I saw this prompt in the 10 Minute Novelists Facebook group and couldn’t resist…
The only rule? 100 words, no more, no less.
So this is what I came up with:
Jenny had some unfinished business at the office. Nevermind the fact that she’d recently been pronounced dead, mourned at a lavish funeral, and buried in the Peaceful Slumbers Cemetery; those TPS reports weren’t going to write themselves. Her alarm went off promptly at 6:15, but getting out of bed proved more difficult than she’d imagined. Clawing her way out of a casket, then through six feet of packed earth was harder than running that marathon last spring. By the time she’d emerged from her eternal rest she was late and desperately needed a shower. “The boss is gonna kill me!”
Quick – write a 100-word story using the same prompt! I double-dog dare you!
Wanna camp together?
