I found another weekly challenge, this one issued by Sacha Black. She asked writers to use the word “break” in a 52 word story. Mine is more of a scene, I’m afraid, and leaves the outcome to the reader’s imagination. However, it is an interesting challenge.

Please find the details here and perhaps give it a try: http://sachablack.co.uk/2017/03/29/writespiration-109-52-weeks-in-52-words-week-13/


Bad Break

written by Kerry E.B. Black

Pain seared through Fran’s left leg. From its unnatural angle, it broke when she hurled from the motorcycle. Where’s Paul? She swiveled to find the bike’s owner. The movement agonized, and she collapsed to the gravel with a screech that reminiscent of the failed brakes before their collision and slide into oblivion.
