Esther’s Challenge – Can You Tell A Story In . . .

It is Thursday and time for your latest five-word story challenge from Esther Chilton

This is an open invitation to all of my followers and Esther’s to have some fun with words.

As Esther gradually returns to her normal working mode, she finds herself with many DEADLINEs to meet. So, today, Esther’s challenge to you is to tell a story in five words, using the word DEADLINE in it somewhere.

Here are a few starters for you:

Broken deadlines come crashing down

Fisherman loses fish on deadline

We have deadlines to meet
