Here’s a randomly generated short story I created using Plot Generator – a site that lets you input various details and then creates a random story with your settings. You can use it to get inspiration or just to mess about and have a laugh. The results are proof that creative writing involves a little more than putting the right elements in the right order. Then again, perhaps my settings were a tad silly. Read on and see for yourself…
The Tiny Sandwich
A Short Story
Gemma Parker looked at the tiny sandwich in her hands and felt lonely.
She walked over to the window and reflected on her dull surroundings. She had always hated noisy Newton Abbot with its vast, vigilant volcanoes. It was a place that encouraged her tendency to feel lonely.
Then she saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the figure of Cameron Olsson. Cameron was a grateful deity with sticky feet and ugly warts.
Gemma gulped. She glanced at her own reflection. She was a brutal, clever, tea drinker with ginger feet and short warts. Her friends saw her as an arrogant, alert angel. Once, she had even made a cup of tea for an unpleasant disabled person.
But not even a brutal person who had once made a cup of tea for an unpleasant disabled person, was prepared for what Cameron had in store today.
The drizzle rained like laughing bears, making Gemma sad.
As Gemma stepped outside and Cameron came closer, she could see the amused smile on his face.
Cameron glared with all the wrath of 8444 sinister fast frogs. He said, in hushed tones, “I hate you and I want a pencil.”
Gemma looked back, even more sad and still fingering the tiny sandwich. “Cameron, I’ve got a new job,” she replied.
They looked at each other with shocked feelings, like two hungry, handsome humming birds eating at a very daring wake, which had drum and bass music playing in the background and two thoughtful uncles running to the beat.
Gemma regarded Cameron’s sticky feet and ugly warts. “I feel the same way!” revealed Gemma with a delighted grin.
Cameron looked unstable, his emotions blushing like a mushy, manky map.
Then Cameron came inside for a nice cup of tea.
Hmmm, I’ve always seen myself as a “brutal, clever, tea drinker.” You can create your own silly story here: Plot Generator. Why not post it on your blog and share the link in the comments below!
