5 Word Writing Challenge: The Game of Life!

Hi There!

Before I begin, I would like to say that this is not 100 words this time, it was too difficult to condense down. In fact I found myself adding and adding. I tried to make it 100 words, but it didn’t sound as great. So this is a short story near enough to 200 words instead!

The words that got selected this time were:

  1. Internship
  2. Tune
  3. Atmospheric
  4. Dress
  5. Searing

Here is my story I wrote:

Amanda was an internship at a company that created video games. They were making a RPG game.

She stared at the main menu of the game when she saw an avatar clad in armour approach the screen. His hand came through the screen and pulled her in.

Amanda whirled around finding herself stuck in a dark forest. The trees were menacing as they looked ready to claw her to death.

When she looked down at her attire she gaped.

“A dress? I hate dresses!” She moaned.

Out of nowhere an eerie and an atmospheric tune began to play. The kind you hear in horror movies.

Something caught her attention. It sounded like a sword being drawn from its sheath.

Amanda turned around and came face to face with a menacing creature with horns, red skin, almost like a bull, but not a bull. In its hand was a sword covered in spitting flames, the temperature was searing!

“It’s time to fight!” Its voice was deep and demonic, even as it laughed fiendishly at her, showing its superiority.

What did you guys think? I’ll be honest, I had fun writing this one!

5 Word Writing Challenge: The Next Top Model

Hi There!

You guessed it, another five word writing challenge!

The words that were selected this time round were:

  1. Absorption
  2. Kill
  3. Modelling
  4. The Uninitiated
  5. Enjoy

Here is my story:

Kirsty was in the limelight. She was voted as the most beautiful model in the show.

All the other contestants would kill to be in her position right now. When she made her first appearance with the uninitiated group in the modelling world; they had no clue what they were getting themselves into. They were continuously humiliated by the mistakes made and the harsh critics broke them. Eventually, they came out with flying colours!

Her absorption in her work was evident as she surpassed the others. She basked in her moment of glory. I want to enjoy this moment!

5 Word Writing Challenge: Indecent Exposure

Here is another story done using 5 different words. The words that I ended up picking were:

  1. Unyielding
  2. Answer phone
  3. Charge Sheet
  4. Father
  5. Obnoxious

Here is my story (it is done to a 100 word count):

A cop sat at his desk filling out a charge sheet. He sighed.

This guy is so obnoxious I don’t understand how his father can stand him. The police officer picked up the phone and dialed a number. The phone rang until he was greeted with the answer phone, once again.

“Hello, Mr. Stevens. This is officer Parker with the metropolitan police. Your son has been arrested, once again, for indecent exposure, this time we found…when you get this message, could you please come to the station. Thank you.”

Officer Parker put the phone down. Why is this guy so unyielding?

I decided to have it that Officer Parker is an acquaintance of the father.

5 Word Writing Challenge: The Gnome Wars!

I found an article from my writing magazine subscription and it gave me an idea to keep my creativity inspired. Basically, all I had to do is go through my dictionary and pick 5 random words and then write a little story with those 5 words in the story.

Here are the 5 words I randomly chose:

  • Overboard
  • Foster
  • Making
  • Self-imposed
  • Bossy

I got truly inspired after watching this funny ikea advert to do with gnomes. You can see the advertisement for yourself as it helped me with the 100 word story I’ve written:

Here is my 100 word story:

He was the gnome leader, a fierce warrior. For a leader he was very bossy, commanding his minions to serve him. They shared the garden with the evil humans and their unbreakable tall castles.

When he gave the powerful speech, he fostered his minions with passion for revenge for being tossed aside and considered useless. All his decisions were self-imposed. He was thinking about making history, the little gnomes defeat the unbeatable powerful humans!

His followers quivered at the thought of war, but still they decided to follow him; even though they all thought he was about to go overboard…

I really love the tune in the advert as it really went well with the scenes and made it really dramatic!

Here’s an idea, lets see what you come out with by using the 5 words I’ve used. I would love to read what you come out with 🙂 You can even link back to me if you wanted to and then I can read it that way.

Good Luck!
