Reena’s Exploration Challenge #168

Welcome back!

Complexity is a lot like freedom – everybody knows what it is, but cannot tell.

The author of this quote was not talking of writers and  poets. For they sure can tell.

PROMPT #168

Well, there are more terms and conditions in this prompt than any other episode of the Exploration Challenge. Enjoy the difference 🙂

SITUATION

A breakdown in domestic water supply

CHARACTERS

  • President of a municipal corporation
  • A harangued home-maker
  • Founder of a fund-raising startup
  • Seller of water tankers 
  • A poet/writer

COMPLEXITIES WHICH CAN BE ADDED

Work-from-home scenarios, Covid, weather or whatever you can think of.

TASK

Write a story as small as a sentence, or as large as 500 words, or somewhere in between. I promise to read the entire piece.

If you can tell a poetic tale or write a ballad, you are most welcome to do it.

The story has to be from the perspective of any one of the given characters. The other characters in the piece can be one or more of those listed here, or any other character you can introduce in the plot. No restrictions on those self-driven bots which take over your thoughts.

Create a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

Last, but not least, don’t forget to tag the post “Reena’s Exploration Challenge” for easy location in the blog roll.

Look forward to reading longer pieces this week…
