Again, I’d like to thank E. Darby Harrington at Orienting Details for inspiring this idea. Please check out her site and show her content some love.
The point of a one sentence challenge is write the most perfectly written sentence that you are able. It is a challenge in brevity, clarity, and artistry. I also wanted you all, my wonderful audience, to participate which is why every One Sentence Challenge post will have a prompt. As you can see from the title, the prompt for this week is A Long Car Ride.
I finished this one in about the same time as the first one, in about 12 minutes.
1st Attempt: Back ache and heart break, but despite that I’m heading to you.
2nd Attempt: Backache and sad pangs, but despite that I’ll drive to you.
3rd Attempt: Feeling backache and sad pangs, I drive to you.
4th Attempt: Feeling like the geriatric old man that matches my soul, the back pain and the constant looking back, despite this I drive to you
5th Attempt: A geriatric would deal better with this distance, and with less back pain, nonetheless, I drive to you
6th Attempt: Haunted by a geriatric spirit, manifesting in back pain and an unhealthy relationship with the past, I drive to you
7th Attempt: Haunted by a geriatric spirit, which manifests back pain, I drive to you
8th Attempt: Haunted by a geriatric spirit manifesting back pain and rumination, I drive to you
Final Attempt (Took me a ton of times this time!): Despite being haunted by a geriatric spirit manifesting back pain and rumination, I drove to you.
I hope you enjoyed my one sentence and the journey to become what I thought was the best version of itself. Please leave a comment below with the best sentence you can make with the prompt A Long Car Ride.
