Your day as a short story:
« on: January 16, 2012, 02:17:12 PM »
I hope this is in the right place...  :notunderstand:
I wanted to practice writing, and thought "hey! This might be fun!". So here it is!
Turn your day into a short story! I'm still working mine out right now I might even do yesterday. Also I think it would be fun to do just a part of the day...say.... just your morning?
I thought it would be good for developing our writing with out having to use our stories yet. (It makes me so sick of my writing to do that.)
Anyway, hope this sounds as good to you as it did to me!! lol  :biggrin:

I'll post mine sooooooooon.

Okay came up with this one from what happened with me this morning with my little one. Using my name on here and a nickname for my son hope ya dont mind. The story is short but gives you a inkling of the stubborn personality we both have.

"Honey its time for school wake up." Nyxy calls to her young son. He is currently in grade K at his elementary school and is not a happy camper about it. Jay opens his eyes and moans "I don't wanna." Nyxy groans this was a daily event for them. "Come on honey get up." He sighs sitting up "okay." His eyes fill up with tears and he begins to cry. Nyxy goes into panic mode "honey what's wrong?" Jay huffs between tears "I don't like school its scary." Nyxy who at this point has heard this every day since the fall when he started. "What is so scary about school?" Jay sighs "everything." Nyxy sits next to him and hugs him "okay tell me at least one scary thing?" Jay rubs his eyes "They make you do work!" She tries to hold back a laugh at his declaration "Honey you have to do work that is what school is for." Jay whimpers again his eyes filling with tears "Oh okay."

After breakfast, washing up and getting dressed he stares pitifully at his mother "can't I stay home instead?" Nyxy sighs "no dear I have to go out today you would be home alone." He thinks "Then I can just stay home alone." He nods satisfied with this idea. Nyxy groans squeezing her eyes tight then sighs "No honey you have to go to school." This is greeted by more tears. "Come on honey your fish are staring at you and saying "Don't cry Jay." This distracts him and he goes to the tank to smile at the fish. Nyxy grabs the keys to the car to take him to school. "Say goodbye to the fishes you'll tell them about your day when you get home." Jay nods and says goodbye then heads out with his mom. 

Nyxy straps him into the car and he frowns "I dont wanna go." Nyxy at this point is at her patience limit "well your going to go honey and that's that." He sighs and then asks "do dinosaur fish have to go to school?" Nyxy pretty sure she has never heard of such a creature shrugs "I don't know but if its a fish they do attend schools get it?" Jay not amused frowns "Fish don't go to school." Nyxy counters "well in Finding Nemo, didn't Nemo go to school?" Jay sighs "Yes. But then he got to go to a fish tank." Nyxy grins "So are you saying you would rather go to a fish tank then school?" Jay "Yes." Nyxy groans in defeat. she pulls up to his school which had a rule on staying parked too long and drops him off waving. He waves then slumps his shoulders heading in his glasses sliding down his nose. She hears the honk of a parent behind her as she tries to make sure he goes into the building. She watches him hover behind watching other kids go in, then finally heads in when the principal greets him. "Whew one battle down, the next one will be even rougher...Homework." With a heavy sigh Nyxy drives off to get her errands done planning her battle plans to help her son get his homework done that afternoon.
