Flash Fiction Challenge: One Amazing Sentence

Last week’s challenge: Conclude The Tale!

This week’s challenge is deceptively simple.

I want you to write one amazing sentence. A sentence that is part of a larger story but is not itself a story — a sentence that makes you want to read forward and backward, but is itself a capture of the tale. Just a slice.

(And then, next week, folks will choose a sentence to build an entire story around.)

Write one sentence — no more than 100 words, please.

Drop it in the comments below.

And that’s all you need to do.

But make that sentence as amazing as you can make it.

Go.
