EXERCISE Plot Practice: Week 8, Sacrifice

Discussion in 'REFINING WRITING' started by The Mood is Write, Apr 29, 2016.

  1. Everyone loves plotting! Plotting is a fabulous way to find new ideas, breathe new life into old ones, and otherwise just have a really good time.

    I'm going to throw three basic plots (in various formats) a week, and users are welcome to post their takes and what they'd do with any given plot.

    1. Priest x Sacrifice
    2. One Way Trip
    3. "I don't mind sharing."




    Below are my examples.

    1. Priest x Sacrifice

      He hadn't meant for this to happen. This was his first sacrificial ritual, and the girl laid across the table in front of him leaned her head back as she waited. She was trembling, a small smile on her face as the tea from earlier numbed her body to pain.

      He drove the knife down, but stopped just short of her chest.

      "Get on with it." A voice came from below him with a drunk-looking smile.

      But he couldn't. His legs gave out underneath him as he started to shake. An uproar sounded from the assembled crowd.
    2. One Way Trip

      The blood of countless fools clung to her hands. Metaphorically, of course. She'd scrubbed them raw countless time. Now it was her turn, and she knew she deserved it, but someone did not get the memo and saved her at the cost of their own life. Now, she must discover why a person would rescue the Butcher of Impyra.
    3. "I don't mind sharing."

      Vampire twins are stuck in the zombie apocalypse. Stuck with a limited supply of blood dolls, they must either share or one must starve. One of their dolls has a fever and may be infected already.
