A very interesting and exciting challenge has been issued by C.S. Wilde on her blog.
The challenge: write a story in two sentences. Straightforward enough.

I’m going to look so manly doing this, Kamala is just going to go crazy seeing this, was Nathan’s thought; he allowed a smirk to come across his face as he gave one final breath. Then focusing all his energy forward he bursted in motion, running at full speed.
