MMT has some amazing stories, not just because they’re true but they’re also because they’re so concise, leaving lots to the imagination. Here are 3 of my favourites:
Today, as a young ‘up and coming’ lawyer, everyone in the firm was congratulating me for winning my first big case this morning. And all day long all I could think about is how I used a technicality in the law to help a murderer walk away a free man. MMT
Today at 7AM I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went in to work. At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too. A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow. MMT
Today, at a funeral reception, everyone had something kind to say about the deceased. As they spoke through their tears, many of them admitted that they wish they had told John how wonderful he was before he died. MMT
Number 3 on the list is getting a short story published. Part of the challenge in writing is creating strong characters and meaningful stories to tell; MMT testament to the power of the short story.
