i was scrolling through my post idea list on my phone and then i found an ✨idea✨
wow i wonder what else is on that list? what did you say? more ideas? #shOoK
i’ll flick through my dictionary, find a random word, and write a short story inspired by it!
(please note i am bad at writing 🥲)
random word number 1: award – noun
Butterflies flutter in my stomach. My hands shake. Deep breaths, I tell myself, One performance and I’ll be finished. One small performance. That’s all.
I hear my name being called out. The butterflies swoop and my stomach churns. I walk, trembling, to the stage, clarinet in hand. I see the blaring bright lights. I squint and my eyes search for my older sister. She’s waving madly at me, a huge grin on her face.
The butterflies calm down. I take a deep breath. I focus on my clarinet, fingering the silver keys. My eyes skim the sheet music prepared for me. I take another deep breath. I begin to play. Music flows from my clarinet. I’m lost in the beauty of the music and forget about everything else.
~ a few weeks later ~
I read the letter in disbelief. I would’ve given myself 15th place. But here it is, in black and white: ‘We are pleased to inform you that you have received 3rd place in the Youth Arts Competition. Please read the information below to find where to receive your award.‘
random word number 2: bitter – adjective
“I hate you.”
“You’re just bitter because my prank was wayyy better than yours.” Harriet laughed.
He rolled his eyes and smiled. “No, I’m bitter because you’re annoying.”
“I’ll take that as a compliment.”
“But, seriously, don’t you think changing the autocorrect on my phone from ‘love’ to ‘hate’ was a bit too far? My mum was so confused!” he said, grinning.
She thought for a few seconds, before replying with, “No, but your’s was horrible. Saying you baked brownies? Brown ‘e’-s?! Why would you ever bake real brownies, anyway?
“Pfft, it was a great prank. Happy April Fool’s.”
so, uh, that had some… interesting results! (the last one wasn’t too long but i like it >:) also credits to my irl bestie she once told me she did that brown e prank ahahahah)
i may do this again in the future, this was really fun!
that’s all for now, bye everyone!<3
