Writing challenge: prompted stories

I’m fond of writing. Even thinking about writing, world building, theories, or what have you and my eyes start sparkling. The only problem is that I don’t write very often. I want to write more often, but the result is fine words without any practical content. I often have ideas that (in my mind) are good enough to write a story with, so I expand them, think of more details, create a plot, but I don’t venture further: words on paper. It’s kind of like world builder’s disease; you’ve created such an immersive and thrilling world, but as soon as you want to start writing, the idea is dull. You’ve worked out so many details; as soon as it comes down to writing and making your idea physical, you stop. You don’t want to continue, because the idea isn’t fun anymore and you want to do something else. In other words: I should just write, because actions speak louder than words.

 

That’s why I want to do the following. I want to write short, prompted stories every once in a while to improve my writing discipline and just “do it”, and to improve my writing skill(s). The stories I write are raw, unedited works, so you might catch me on a grammar, spelling or other mistake once or twice, but the pieces purely intended for my own improval.

However, I would really appreciate your feedback on things like setting, description, flow, etc. So, feel free to critique me 🙂

 

We’ll see how this goes!
