Give Me Your 10 Best Words

I realise I don’t post a lot, if any, of my fiction writing on this blog so thought I would give you all the opportunity to see what all the fuss is about. Is he actually any good? Or is he just full of it, whatever it is. I’m, therefore, seeking your co-operation. I need your ideas, thoughts, suggestions for some short stories I will post on the blog over the summer. So….ahem….cue drum roll…. give me 10 of your best words.

Comment below with a 10 word (or less) premise for a short story. I’ll select those I like the most and will write a short story based upon it. Seeing as I have so much spare time on my hands and don’t have a whole lot to do. I’ll keep them short, which I guess is the whole point of a short story. But, who knows, you might have given me the germ of an idea for a full blown novel. We shall see, won’t we?

Give me your 10 best words….

Published by Fractured Faith Blog

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. I was saving my best 10 for me. Oh well, share the wealth. Opening line first person:
    Oh my, what will I do with all my time?
    Truth for me is that I have too much to do and I keep distracting so I’m blogging but not writing, or I am writing appraisals but not writing Biblical encouragement.

      1. I was hoping you would. I would love to see this story fleshed out. It is something that has been swirling in my psyche. I would love to see your mind take it and give it color and a reality apart from the one in my mind.

        I would love to know how you would tackle two Gods both professing truth, neither one knowing who is right and neither wanting to accuse the other of being wrong for fear of being wrong themselves.

        My mind starts to circle around the concept of two truths being simultaneously the only truth that matter. But I don’t know how I could tell a story around that.


  2. Excerpt from my blog post, It’s Just Me, “She always has a way of capturing your attention” or since that’s only 9 word
    “She is somewhere between an angel and devil just depends”
    “There is a fascinating sparkle surrounding all her sharp edges”
