Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.
“What’s the movie where these dumb kids are driving around in the desert in a VW? They’re, like, hippie kids, and one of them is in a wheelchair. He complains all the time. They’re driving around and they go to this house where this fucked up family lives and one of them has a mask made out of, like, a catcher’s mitt and he runs around with a chainsaw and every just screams. Like, the whole back half of the movie is just people screaming. It’s sick. One guy has a bbq place, too.”
“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre?”
“Yeah, what’s it called?”
“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre!”
“Oh shit, that’s the actual name?”
