My professor assigned my class this writing prompt that I found very exciting and quite interesting. I want to post on here my prompt so you may see into my head and appreciate the beauty of sentence structure. Then I want everyone of you to do something. I want you to do it yourself. Challenge yourself. Open up your mind, expand your creativity with flexible rubber-band-like depth. Go beyond what you can normally do and try this prompt out. It definitely is challenging and a little hard, but it definitely gets your creative juices flowing. So please, if you will, leave in a comment your entry. I want to read all of them. Here are the rules that my professor assigned:
Rules: Write one paragraph, maximum of three sentences, using these 13 punctuation marks: apostrophe, brackets, colon, comma, dash, ellipsis, exclamation point, hyphen, parentheses, period, question mark, quotation mark, and semicolon. You may use a punctuation mark more than once.
He stood, towering like a tree – that damn devilish fiend, no friend but foe; “Slender Man” was what they were calling him – staring with his pale, porcelain face into my soul . . . he was eyeless. From the get-go I knew I must’ve been marked (but why? [Slender Man always, ALWAYS had reasons!]), and I didn’t know how I could survive this creature and his psychological haunting: cryptic, elusive, ambiguous. He wore a dark suit, the night concealing his presence, the trees taking him as their own; I blinked, and I was alone.
