Miniature Writing Challenge
This post is for the Miniature Writing Challenge run by An Artist At Heart. This challenge gives a picture and a short story prompt and asks that you write either a mini short story (50 – 150 words), a tiny poem or a haiku (3 lines, 17 syllables). To read the full rules, go here. The short story prompt is given at the beginning of my story in italics.
He woke up alone on the shore of an unfamiliar beach…
The waves were rolling in gently splashing on the sand that covered his feet.
Looking down, he saw something moving and bent down to pick it up. It glowed, felt smooth, and began to move in his hands.
He heard a voice that said, “welcome, we are happy to see you arrive.”
It startled him and he almost dropped it, but recovered from his surprise when he suddenly realized where he was.
He could see his spaceship in the distance and remembered landing, stumbling out the door and collapsing on the surface of Mars.
