Short and to the point

Tell a true story ... in one sentence. No cheating with run ons ;-) Tell the essence and keep it succinct.

This is trickier than it seems! A story should have at least one character, an obstacle or slice of life and a resolution. A lot to pack into a sentence :-)

When you're done, you can submit it to: One Sentence: True stories, told in one sentence.

There are loads of stories at the site (though you may want to wait until after Thursday to read deeply into the archives since one story is coming up next prompt :-)

(Some past posts that involved one sentence: One sentence review and One sentence plot.)
