For graduation, I acquired a lovely book called 642 Things to Write About, which was compiled by the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto. As a direct result of this, I have now challenged my fellow Word Nerds to respond to each prompt as they are posted on a weekly basis. I will respond in the body of this post, while I ask everyone else to respond in the comments. This week, the prompt is the following:
What can happen in a second
A finger on a cold metal trigger. Gun pointed straight.
The finger squeezes the trigger.
Her brother falls. Dead.
