Writing Prompt: Begin a story with, ‘The hallway was silent.’
TAKE ONE: The hallway was silent bar the click-clacking of her heels. The metal stud scraped on the floor with every step and lead to an even more uneven gait. She should have worn a different pair of shoes, she thinks, everyone will know she’s broke and hasn’t worked in months, the desperation will ooze off of her and she’ll never get a call-back. But these shoes are her lucky shoes, these shoes she feels good in.
I’m grumpy and tired. I came, I wrote, I’m going to bed. I’ll do better tomorrow.
