So I went a-stumbling across the internet and found an intriguing site where writing prompts run amok. This one (and the entire list) intrigued me so I gave it a go.
Write the first 250 words of a short story, but write them in ONE SENTENCE. Make sure that the sentence is grammatically correct and punctuated correctly. This exercise is intended to increase your powers in sentence writing.
At the corner of the Mulberry Avenue and Highlow Street four-way stop sat a house of unquestionable beauty with tall, white, roman pillars, lovely arched forget-me-not blue window panes, and an enormous crystal chandelier visible from the street that was the envy of all of the neighbors as well as anyone who just happened to get lost in this particular corner of suburbia, but what none of them knew (nor understood) was why there the house saw more inhabitants than a fast food restaurant and appeared to have a permanent ‘For Sale By Owner’ sign on vast front lawn, although most assumed (rightly of course) that there was a fatal flaw that made the house utterly unlivable; a certain slant to the ceiling that just could not be worked around, ignored for any length of time, closed off, or removed no matter how hard anyone in the house had tried.
I'm about a hundred words short, but I don't think I could stomach writing anymore. Look at it! it's practically a paragraph!
