the single line story challenge.

Katja at Little Blossoms for Jesus tagged me in the Single Line Story Challenge a while back and I’m finally getting around to participating. Thanks for the tag, Katja! I’m excited to dive into this.


Thank the person who nominated you.

Write five single line stories that fall under any of these genres:

young adult

You can choose the five genres that are easiest for you, or you can challenge yourself to try something new!

Nominate five blogger/writers who you’d love to see participate and leave an open nomination for all writers!

You can do this challenge more than once.


Deep in the secret forest lived a people forgotten to all but themselves, and so they would always remain.


The solution to the Detective Killer case had been clear all along, but Detective Casada had dragged out the proceedings as long as he could—no matter how deserved, it is always hard to give one’s best friend up to the cold hands of justice.


It wasn’t until the end of that day that I realized I’d lost my helmet somewhere back on Omaha beach—and I was sure glad that was all I’d lost.


Astronaut McCain watched the oxygen levels in the ship drop and asked herself why—if she had to die in space—it couldn’t at least have been in a cool way, like getting sucked into a black hole or being discovered and killed by an alien life form.


The Travis gang held up the bank Friday afternoon, and Sheriff Morrison decided that retirement could wait one more day.

I have to leave for work soon, so I’m not going to take the time to tag anyone specifically. But if you want to participate, go for it! And I’d love to hear what you thought of my little stories. (I tried to make them as self-contained as possible. And the western is my favorite. Because…westerns. It’s also one of the most satisfying of the stories, in my opinion.)
