Destroying the world seemed like the best option at the time. It should’ve worked. But she survived. Again.
I thought I should make today’s prompt a little different, but I’m not sure I succeeded. The idea is that if you remove one or more sentences from the given prompt (except the first one), you should get a completely different idea for a story. For example, if you choose to go with “Destroying the world seemed like the best option at the time. It should’ve worked,” you get something different than if you used all four sentences. Likewise, if you go for “Destroying the world seemed like the best option at the time. But she survived. Again,” should allow you to come up with something different. Each sentence adds a little bit of backstory or underlying conflict between characters.
I hope I did a good job. I’m burning in fever, so I may have messed it up royally. How many stories can you come up with?
