I entered a short story competition that required me to write a 100 word short story in 24 hours. The story needed to meet three things, a theme (Comedy), a situation (Climbing a Mountain) and a word that needed to be used (Radar). It took me a while to find the right idea, and get it to work in a way I was happy with, but that’s not saying I didn’t enjoy the process, and the stories that didn’t make the cut. So, for the sake of creativity, here is the rejected 100 word stories I wrote..
“I listened to all he had to say, and still went through with my plan. We may have journeyed together up this mountain, but the descent would be a journey for only one, and that one was to be me.”
“So you made the decision to end his life before you preformed the task?”
“That’s what I told you when I first sat down, as with the fact you will need no radar to find his body, for I spread him out wide with these hands. They struck him down and continued to hit him until he moved no more.”
