Can you tell a story in . . .

It’s Thursday and, with kind permission from Esther Chilton, your new five-word challenge is here. This week, your prompt is CURVE. So can you tell a story in five words, using the word CURVE in it somewhere?


Although Esther is still in too much pain to type full blogs, she dropped me a quick message to add three words of her own as prompts for your five-word stories. She has also promised to provide us with a prompt for the regular Limericks challenge on Monday.

Here are Esther’s three words for today.




And you can still use CURVE if you wish.

Esther will be posting your contributions to last week’s challenge (KISS, SANDWICH, DEODORANT) on her own blog when she has recovered enough to start blogging again.

Please re-blog for maximum participation.

Have a go! It’s just for fun.
