I’ve been snowed under the last couple weeks, and I missed my writespiration. So, two weeks ago was all about complex sentences. This week on the theme of sentence stories, I want you to write a two sentence romance story. Here’s mine:
Tears splashed onto the lily’s as I knelt to place them on mum’s grave, the last thing she’d said was to be free and live my life again, I’d spent too long caring for her instead of me.
“I buried my mum today too. Do you need a drink as much as I do? there’s a pub round the corner.” said a smooth voice from behind me. I smiled. Mum was forcing me to live.
What is it with me and cheating? I can’t seem to follow my own rules. But meh, close enough. Besides you never know how inspiration strikes.
Now to the last writespiration entrants
Ali up first this time with a lengthy sentence for us:
I didn’t mean to hurt her; it’s just that I couldn’t imagine how anything I had to say or do would be of any help to anyone, so of course, I immediately said “No,” and, in so doing, that one small word was enough to destroy all her carefully tended hopes and dreams.
Geoff excelled himself with the most complex sentence I’ve ever attempted to read, I’m not sure it even makes sense! :p
If A is a gerundive exclamation and B is a homonymical verbosity where the root of B is a function of the indicative modal verb, then using as an example CD from the participle conjunction, can you extrapolate the subjunctive relative pronoun to prove that this sentence is complex?
