Here’s a surprise. My short fiction class of eleven people received an assignment. Their challenge after six sessions of beginning craft was to write a rant in second person point of view and in one long sentence. The stories phoenixed from their pens and I felt like a proud mother kookaburra whose chicks could now fly.
Ma wants to know if you have ever written a mini fiction in one long sentence in second person pov – concise, compressed, under 250 words, with a mini arc and a tied up ending?
I will offer you examples but not until I see some attempts from you. My students might allow me to show you a few of theirs as examples after they’ve seen yours.
Ma’s Challenge for today. Do as my students did. Prize?
Ma will post the best ones on her site.
Ma’s going to make strong blue gum tea now for her buddy.
