Have you heard of the #247Challenge?  It is a simple writing call to action where everyone is invited to write a story in 24 words.

I was inspired to write this after hearing Dusty Springfield singing ‘Windmills of Your Mind’ on the radio this morning.

I’m personally not a fan of ‘One Day’ as an opening, whether I’m reading or a writing.  The ‘One Day’ proved more of a constraint than the 24 word limit, because of the way it impacted on the structure of the story that wasn’t really coming to me. On top of this, being forced to include the words ‘One Day’ left me only 22 others to play with!

And play I did: a quick burst of creativity and no pressure!

It was good for my soul.

Give it a go!
