The prompt beginning sentence is-” They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods.” The picture prompt is below. Here is my story.
They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods. The writer wrote in the next scene.
“Whoa. I’m not following buffaloes and their babies. I know what happens in stories to people who follow buffalos.” Henry, the writer’s character, said.
“Is that so? What happens?”
“They get attacked by Indians.”
“It’s my story.”
“I lost everything I had in Chapter One. I had a gunshot wound in Chapter Four, and now I’m following buffaloes in Chapter Eight. Let me write the next scene.” Henry said.
“Absolutely not.” The writer said.
“What’s the matter? Scared you’ll get attacked by Indians?”
“Why don’t you just follow the buffaloes like the rest of the characters?”
“Why don’t you just write a scene without buffaloes?” Henry said.
They couldn’t follow the buffaloes because their beloved cowboy, Henry, was stricken with Cholera.
“Note to self, never trust a writer.”
